Cruising with kids
is certainly not the easiest thing in the world but for us it sure has been worth it. Our oldest is 3 in July. She can climb the boarding ladder from the dinghy
in nasty chop, clip on her own life vest, and move around fairly adeptly in a seaway down below while getting tossed about.
There's a pretty cool playground in Two Harbors, and Friday and Saturday nights around ~7pm (I think, maybe 8?) at the little bar area they have music
and dancing, and there are tons of kids
. Really an awesome experience. Our daughter still talks about "chips and salsa and dancing".
