Lake Nokomis. Our lake in the City of Lakes. Sawyer & Zola take swimming lessons at the beach. It’s our usual running track, part of the bike route, a favorite place to grab ice cream. The lakes figure large in our recreation during all seasons; it’s part of who we are.
And so the kayaks, canoes & paddleboats wait their turns while the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships take center stage. There are dogs and babies and still plenty of bikes. Kids on the swingset and on ice skates. No matter how cold (or hot) it gets, how hard it snows (or rains), there will be thousands of people at, in, on & around the lake any day of the year. It’s part of what I love about us.

People in GA don’t go out when it is 30 degrees. I miss home. I feel badly for the boats but they’ll have their turn. Thank you.
Do you ever get back to visit? Sounds like you could use a winter vacation Up North 🙂
Beautifully written. I appreciate the boats, the people, the lake backed up by the trees. Nicely done.
Thank you! I like the contrast between the bright and muted colors.
