An Early Swim

We usually do our daily swim at the lake about 5:30 in the late afternoon

Sometimes 7:30 or even 8:00 depending on what the day brought.

But today we went about 11:00 in the morning.

Not real early as we had been up for hours, but a first for us in many years.

It felt so different than it had those few short hours before in the evening.

The light was so strong and harsh - no long shadows or evening glows.

We thought the water would feel colder as the air temp was a bit warmer.

But it was actually pretty nice.

Even though it was Saturday, there were only a couple of other swimmers.

I don't think I have ever seen the lake so empty this time of the year - especially on a weekend.

People don't know what they are missing on a gorgeous summer day.

We certainly enjoy it!
