Paddle, Bocce and Sunsets

SOUTH SAN JOSE

By Leslie Moniz

Destination:  Almaden Valley Lake  (South San Jose).
When: Late afternoon.
You’ll need:  A life vest if you don’t know how to swim in shallow waters.
Cash factor: Light.

Few may journey to this destination deep in San Jose territory, but why not do something out of the ordinary? Almaden Valley Lake has endless amounts of “competitive” activities that are sure to have your date admiring your athletic ability. Whisk away to this man-made lake and challenge your date to a game of bocce ball. Make it interesting by proposing that whoever wins will have to take the lead in paddling the paddle boat you’ll later rent. If you want to score extra points, make sure you plan this date accordingly so you can catch the sunset. We can’t think of a better way to close out a date than paddling on a lake as the sun sets.
