September swim

September has been magically warm.

One evening, my daughter and I went down to the lake

For a sunset swim.

The dogs dived in for joy

While the sun cast its orange glow

On water and stone.

  24. We typically have Indian summer here. Just coming off a heat wave so we’re happy here that the fog is back and our natural airconditioning is working again.

    That lake is so beautiful.
