We went to a local state park around here to cool off tonight. It’s a rather large park, with trails, a lake and camping area. I had a nice time cooling off in the lake, although my boyfriend, let’s call him “Mike,” only dipped his feet in. The wuss. (I’m sure people aren’t the only ones to pee in that lake.)
Anyway, got some writing in before the bugs started biting and it was just nice to get away from it all. I forget sometimes how much I really miss the quiet country evenings from my childhood. So nice to get way and relax after a stressful day at work.
like the sound of the wind
in the trees.
Makes me want to settle
on a blanket
in the warm grass.
People splash in the lake
children laugh and play
Yeah, this is just what I needed.
What a perfect end,
to a not-so perfect day.
Just a few pics I took today…and then:
Happy Writing! Hope everyone has a great night!
