Summer-Writers Post Blog Hop #51
Just yesterday I was out on our beautiful Lake Minnetonka boating and jet skiing. I was in heaven. I grew up on the Lake. I am most at peace on the lake. Some of my favorite things to do in the summer are to frequent music festivals, relax on my hammock, watch the birds that come to my feeders. Just two days ago, my bestie and I were sitting on the stoop talking and a humming bird came to drink from one of my vine flowers.
I adore sitting in my living room in the evening listening to the frogs sing in our pond behind our home. Nature gives me such calm. I walk each day and observe as much as I can in nature as I do so. I take many photos on my walks and on my Sunday Drives.
I grew up living on a choice piece of property on Lake Minnetonka. We lived in Spring Park Bay and were accustomed to waking up each morning to a luxurious dip in the lake. Our summers were packed with swimming, boating, tennis at our court, and walking or running around the point. We lived on Casco Point which was a circle around the lake. It was such a nice way to grow up. I look back now and know I took it for granted.
Married for thirteen years, my ex and I had a lovely cabin up North in Stone Lake Wisconsin. Again our lake front property was such a blessing. We boated, jet ski'ed, played water volley ball and had many guests up to visit. We sold the property after the divorce which was the right thing to do, but I do miss it. I wanted to keep my kids tradition and friendships we made there strong. Each year I take my kids back up to where our cabin was located and we stay in a beautiful resort that our friends we met up there years ago, own.
Summer is definitely packed full of experiences here in Minnesota. I like the change of seasons, but I am so partial to summer. Here is to a lovely summer for all.
