the lake we'll be enjoying this summer!
When I was a kid, my folks would take day trips to a lake in the Helderbergs.
The slimy things in the water. The green yuck that wrapped around my ankles. The squishy things between my toes. The Darning Needles.
Hated all of it.
I especially hated it because all the cool kids were just a few miles away in a pool. The sun was always shining over the pool. The water was clear and the bugs knew to stay away.
So, as an adult, lakes were something I never went out of my way to go to.
However, a few years ago, the hubster and I began to rent a cabin by a lake in the central Adirondacks.
Yes, there's still slimy and squishy things in the water. And the bugs. . . oh the bugs!
But, look ---
I wouldn't trade this quiet and beauty for a whole poolful of cool kids!
