Want to go to the Lake?!
Throughout my life, my favorite place to go in the summer has been the lake. It's such a beautiful, peaceful place, and not far down the road. Each time we go I get so excited, I feel like a puppy again!
"A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is the earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature."
-Henry David Thoreau
I just love to canoe!
There are many interesting things to look at in the lake.
We've seen some very large catfish and carp; I'm glad I wasn't swimming with them!
When I was younger, I loved to swim back and forth between the shore and the boat. Now I am beginning to appreciate the solace of gliding across the lake's glassy surface and feeling the gentle breeze.
Though I don't swim as much as I used to, I still enjoy some vigorous wading now and then!
DUCK!! Oh, I'm sorry for that rather embarrassing outburst! More embarrassing yet is that it was only a decoy duck....
