The Summer



Awhile ago, I posted a photo of driftwood in Lincoln Park, Seattle.  The driftwood had a carving on it.  Do you remember?  The cool thing is the artist commented on my photo.  He and his family carve images into driftwood.  You can read about them here.  We're all connected in the blogosphere, which is pretty neat.

I've had a hankering for a swim lately.  So Husbandman and I hightailed it down to Lake Monroe and jumped in.  Then we sat in our camp chairs and read our books.  The lake was lovely, and pontoons and kayaks were zipping along with merriment.

Next week I'm going to Sandra's place for a swim.

It's summer, so everyone should be swimming as much as possible. Living near aquatic environments improves your emotional and physical health.  I think I read that somewhere.  Also, try to carve some images into wood if you can.

"Aquatic environments" was one of my top reasons for moving to Minneapolis although I don't think I want to swim in any of the lakes today.
