There are beach people and there are lake people.
I am a beach person.
I love the beach and cannot get enough of it.
It is therapeutic to me. I could sit on the sand in the breeze and read for hours
Or just watch the sunset.
I am not a lake person.
I am not wild about swimming in water that I cannot see through.
I am terrified of snakes.
Snakes like the lake....see the pattern?
When I was younger, I used to go to the lake with a friend's family a lot in the summer and never could enjoy it because I was always keeping my eyes peeled for snakes.
This weekend our friends invited us to Crystal Lake.
LOVED IT! LOVED IT! LOVED IT!
The water is beautiful and clear (hence the name).
There is a huge beach with lots of pretty sand.
I actually felt like we were at the beach.
We had the best time. Steve and I inner-tubed (is that a word?) together. We have not done that since our honeymoon 8 years ago. It was so much fun!
AC rode it with her friend and had a blast!
Little sister played in the sand and was so content.
Our friends have had a place there for almost 10 years and have never seen a snake in the lake. This is my kind of lake.
I will gladly go back anytime and am so grateful that we were invited.
Only one major disappointment - I forgot my camera!
So maybe I am a lake person...or maybe I am just a Crystal Lake person.
