Waiting for Summer
As I walk by on the road I always admire this beach area on a small lake. It's really sheltered and faces SW, soaking up the warm afternoon sun. There are picnic tables, swings, a water slide, a jetty, and a sauna. A little piece of paradise owned by one of the nearby farms I guess.
However, all that will have to wait a while yet, until the ice that still covers the entire lake melts. It will do. It is strange to think that 10 weeks from now this ice-covered lake will probably be warm enough to swim in and I will hear the sounds of playing families if I am standing on the road just here.
Roll on summer!
