I was beginning to fear we would not make it this summer.
With all the rain and damp cold weather that has been our summer so far, any thoughts of going swimming in the lake were not to be considered.
We had a couple of hot days which worked their magic on the water and warmed it to just the right degree.
It was chilly, but not chilly enough to keep us out of it.
And it felt so good - almost a whole year since the last time.
I can foresee a couple of dinners spent by the water and some early evenings with the flippers and goggles as we enjoy our time swimming at the lake.
Ten dollars pays for a whole season's pass. Even though it's a short season this year - it will be worth every cent!
