    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...

    Good Moments

    When i was a little girl i use to pretend that i was a fish in a big lake and that my mommy was gonna find me there. I always had good memories at a lake even if the rest of my life was crazy...the lakes were always good for me.

    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...

    Nothing So Lovely

    There is nothing so lovely as a quiet little lake.  For about 7 years of my life I lived by a beautiful lake.  I loved it so much I would go down to the water almost daily.  There was something so calming and peaceful about it.  In the winter there would...

    Minnesota Life

    A Wonderful Start

    Deep gray so smooth it looks solid. The sun peeking over the mountain, scaring away the dark. The calm, the peace, the quiet only broken by the voices of the birds chirping, singing away the stress. The gentle rock of the boat, the soft lapping of the water, the splash of fish. A...

    I Really Enjoy Lakes

    I hope to live on a lake someday.  Nice and quite, neighbors kinda far away.  A dock and a small sailboat.  Skinny dipping at night.  Sand or grass beach with shade trees.  Lounge chairs to read in in the day, maybe a hammock.  Picnic table.  Hot days for swimming.  Cool...

    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!

    Therapeutic Waters

    I am lucky for I live near the Great Lakes and so many other inland lakes. When warm weather approaches, it becomes my great escape. The water calls to me, and like a magnet it draws me  forward.  I allow it to completely devour me as it fills me with its mighty strength. I...

    I just got back from visiting the lake.

    I had the best time!! We went cannoning and flipped a few times, we went water skiing and all the lake activities. We explored the forests and had fun!! If I didn't message you back the last couple days, that's because I was busy and had no service.

    Just Breathe, Nothing Else Really Matters.

    It was about 1:00 am. It had been a very humid hot day. Even at this late time of early morning, the warm moisture formed droplets over my body. Water dripping into my eyes. The lake was calm. The moon was almost full in the sky. Some of the brighter stars shining. I walked...
