The row boats

The staff on the dock helping people get onto the boats were very nice and welcoming. The cashiers at the counter not so friendly and welcoming.

Friendliness of staff and fun being a "kid" for a day activity.

Was just fun. Remember as a kid rowing with my father on Stow Lake. I now live out of the city and we offen take visitors to Golden Gate Park and to Stow lake for a picnic. This time I took my wife on an electric paddle boat. FUN
