Being around my extended family might not always be the most comfortable thing. (I’m just not on the same wavelength as some of them. But there are other members I do enjoy spending time with.) But their lakeside property is just one of the best places on earth.
I didn’t get to spend a lot of time there this year, because there wasn’t swimming weather all that often, but I’m glad I got to go once more before the summer was over.
I mean, I like my little local lakes – but they just don’t compare to a big, beautifully blue-green lake surrounded by mountains.
