Did you know that 2016 is a Leap Year? If you haven’t been keeping track, that means we get one extra day this year—a day to kick back, have fun or try something new! In today’s blog, we will be looking at four fun ways to spend the day with loved ones by your side.
Shake up your routine
Leap Day falls on a Monday this year—so if you’ve been looking for a fun way to shake up your routine, now might be the perfect time to do it!
If you normally would stray away from embarking on a weekday boat trip, for example, why not plan one for Leap Day? If you live close enough to your local body of water, you can head out after work and enjoy dinner at your favorite waterfront café. This is just one way to switch up your daily routine—find a way you enjoy and try it out.
Cross an item off your boating bucket list… and plan for the years ahead
What is that one thing you’ve been meaning to try—but just haven’t had the time to do? It might be a new trick on your jet ski or a water toy you’ve been wanting to test out. It might also be a destination or special trip you’ve had in mind. Whatever it is, find a way to cross it off your boating bucket list this Leap Day! We only get one of these days once every four years, so find a special way to celebrate it in 2016.
Can’t cross that item off just yet? Even beginning the planning for a special trip is a big way to make this Leap Day special. Take some time to plan for the years ahead and think about what you want to have accomplished by the next Leap Day, four years from now!
Spend time with family
It seems that there are never enough hours in the day, especially when it comes to valuable family time. Keep this Leap Day simple by enjoying family time on the boat with a special picnic dinner, fishing excursion or day trip.
Take a “leap” of faith
Finally, this Leap Day, try taking a “leap” of faith into what you’ve always wanted to do. Is it buying that new boat, or setting off on a weeklong adventure? Years from now, you’ll be able to look back on this Leap Day as the day you finally leaped into the unknown and pursued something new.
If you plan on trying any of these ideas this Leap Day, let us know below! While it may just be another day on the calendar, we think it provides a great way to do more of what you love—namely, spending time on the water!
