I know there are at least two people who have been waiting patiently for me to update my blog on what it’s like to live on a lake.
I’ve tried to write this post at least 18 times, but it always ends up with me coming off as a total asshole.
I can’t lie.
It’s freaking AWESOME.
More awesome than I could ever put into words.
More so than I ever would have imagined.
I mean it is so, so fun and beautiful, I feel like I am living in a dream. I honestly don’t know what on earth I did before I lived on a lake?
How will I EVER not live on a lake again?
I am ruined. For life.
And we don’t even have a boat yet! Imagine what the jet ski and or tubing shenanigans will be like.
Here is the best way for me to show you how it is to live on a lake. And this doesn’t even really encompass my new favorite activity: longboarding. I just LOVE doing this every night around the neighborhood as the sun starts to get lower in the sky. My neighbors thought it was weird at first, but now they all wave at me as I cruise by. I think I may even get a few of them riding soon, too!
Anatomy of a SUP cannonball:
The haul up onto the board is so graceful. Thanks, boy, for capturing this for me.
Make sure you put on your best howler monkey face!
And if you believe that statement is true you don’t know me at all!
OK, we do like to hang out in the floaties, and jump off the dock:
This is the photo I have assigned to the boy on my iPhone.
We are lucky to have lake access on the front and back side of the house.
There is a lot of wildlife here at the lake.
Almost every morning I see bald eagles. The other day there was a lot of lake fog and they were flying just inches above the water. It was SO cool. There are also blue herons, ducks, swans, geese and other assorted waterfowl.
It can be exhausting to have so many things to do…
I have a million other pictures I’ve taken since we have moved here, but I think you get the picture. Living on a lake is the luckiest thing I’ve ever had happen to me! I plan to live it up as much as I can while we are here at Bragg, and research a good retirement lake spot too 😉
