We are trying to get as much swimming as possible before summer passes.
Luckily some friends had suits for them to wear while playing in the rather cooler water.
It let them play for hours in there. Just what we wanted. Just one more time.
We sat, talked, read, talked, knitted, had warm tea…
The kids jumped from the rope on the other side of the lake. We swam around the lake, a little more than once. Oh… it makes you feel so good and fresh. I won’t trade a swim in the lake for anything. No. It is my most favorite thing of all.
What a sight. I love this lake.
And at this time, a week day, most schools having started and us… just a few of us on a rather chilly day at the lake. But what is it 50F when leaving the house to a cloudy early morning?
Still fun. Lots of fun!
Nothing than a hot chocolate and hot tea can’t help.
And well…. hot soup too.
Still beauty all around. Peaceful. Calm. Quiet. Nature. Nurture. Deep breathes. Memories.
Clouds. Sweaters. Hot tea. Soups. Sunshine.
I’m almost ready to say goodbye to our summer. But not just yet. Hang on.
This was a perfect late-summer lake swim. Ohhhhh so very good. I feel so lucky.
