Marine & Outdoor Review

Living in Southern California means that we have easy access to the beaches. In the summer time, we spend a lot of time hanging out on the beach. The kids would play in the sand while we enjoy a relaxing day there. We also have a lake near us that we would take the kids to. Even though we participate in a lot of outdoor activities all year long, I must admit that we don't spend a lot of time at sea or on the lake. The idea of having my kids in open water just scares me.

Lately, I have been thinking about how I should not allow my irrational fears prevent things my kids want to do or try out. Of course, by the same token, as a mother I still want to protect them. A friend of mine has been talking about renting a boat and taking the kids out for a couple of hours at our local lake. I had been hesitant about doing that. However, I know that my kids would be excited to be on a boat, so I have agreed to it but I am making sure that my kids wear their life jackets at all times.

If you spend a lot of time on a boat, I am sure you are already well prepared with the appropriate clothing. But for those of us who are not so familiar with the ins and outs of marine fashion, I recommend checking out Marine & Outdoor store.

While browsing through the site, I was able to find some life jackets for my kids as well as for myself and my husband.  I honestly believe that you can not put a price on safety, so for me, life jackets are must have items before we get on a boat.

In addition to life jackets, the company also offers marine apparels for women, men and kids. If you are looking for jackets or vests that will keep you warm at sea, the company has them also.

While it is fun to take the kids out on outdoor activities, it is also important to make sure that we take all of the safety precautions, so we could really enjoy ourselves.
