I just came back from a restful seven days at a delightful cottage by a lake. The weather has been spectacular, hot and sunny every day, just a sprinkle of rain one afternoon. Food was excellent, beer was cold, and the company was great.... OlderSon and family, and YoungerSon and family together for a whole week.
The lake water was warm and the kids took advantage of being able to swim all day. The first morning they were in the water at 7:30am! I managed to dip my feet in the water but didn't swim with them. Perhaps next time.
