    Amazing Summers

    There's a lake in the country I'm from, called Issyk Kul. I go there with my family, or friend, every single summer. The meaning of Issyk Kul is hot lake. It got its name, because the water is really cool in the summer, and doesn't freeze in the winter. Refreshing!

    Leamington Spa

    This year I visited Leamington Spa. The picture in my profile is the river in the town centre. I think it's great. I can't wait to return in the new year.

    Minnesota Life

    I grew up on a lake and everything about was amazing. Many a nights I would sit at the end of my dock and just think. I always believed that the best lesson is learned only by ones self, and sitting on that dock is a perfect example of that. Although I must admit when my...

    I Sank Down, It Got Cold And Dark.

    Damn it. Some of these lakes are really deep. I told my friends that I could touch the bottom but as I sank i thought that maybe I couldn't. I looked up and saw the light being swallowed by the murky water. Above it must have been 95 degrees but as I sank it started getting...

    Very Peaceful!

    When I go to a lake near me, I just sit on a bench and enjoy the view. So calming and relaxing to me! Eric

    Lake George, New York

    In upstate New York lies one of the most incredible lakes I've ever visited: Lake George. It hosts some of the clearest cleanest water I've ever swam or kayaked in. Fish abound. Visibility into its depths is consistently 20 feet or more. There are tons of boats on Lake George...

    Yes I Do

    Lakes are a great place to spend some time. You can swim, fish, boat, canoe, kayak, jet ski, tube or what ever. The size of the lake determines what you can do but lakes are a great place to spend the day. The great lakes are like the ocean only no salt or sharks to deal with...

    Serenity. That is what I think of when I see a lake. On a calm day, when the wind isn't blowing, and the water is so still. Sitting under the shade of a willow tree, feeling a slight breeze caress my skin, while looking out across the still water. It is so quiet that you can...

    Nothing So Lovely

    Lifeline To The Lake
