Life at the Lake

There's nothing like an evening swim in the lake to wash off the grime of the day. No fancy body washes needed; a quick lather with my organic shampoo and a swim to the island to rinse and I am all set. My skin is soft with a lingering outdoors scent of the lake.

Life is simple here at the lake. Quiet and still - save the rustling of the leaves overhead, the pecking of the nuthatches and the song of the chickadees. The water laps against the dock and the canoe bobs alongside. A dog barks in the distance and soon the calls of the loon will serenade us to sleep.

Life at the lake is simple and good. And we still have five days of vacation left.
