My honey and myself are going with about 10 other friends to stay in a houseboat for 2 nights, June 6th & June 7th, its about 1 1/2 hour drive to Lake Berryessa Marina Resort in Napa, California. It should be lots of fun, I'm just not used to going in lakes, I'm scared of whats in the water.

If any of you are used to going in lakes, please leave me some words of reassurance for my weekend trip.

Thank you!

My laptop is acting wacky and won't let me add a photo, it closes out the windows and I lose everything. So I will post a link to the place where I'm going.

Jun. 6, 2008 at 11:54 AM My husband and I wakeboard in lakes and nothing bad has ever happened.  Although I will say that I wouldn't go in while I was pregnant (remember I have ocd though).  If you are uncomfortable about going in the water then just say you aren't comfortable because you are pregnant and stay out of the water.  You don't have to go in the water to enjoy the sun and time on the boat with friends.

Jun. 16, 2008 at 3:24 PM We go to Lake Tahoe every summer....even though we live in Napa, I won't go in Berryessa and I won't let my kids go up there either.  Way, way too many drunk people on that lake.  I'm glad your trip went looks like you had fun!  Next time, head up to's so worth the drive!
