My daughter turned 16
At the beginning of August
And I organized all kinds of surprises.
We finished the day
With a surprise swim at sunset.
The sky turned from orange to purple:
A perfect ending to a perfect day.

Mid-July and the sun was setting somewhere around 10.30 pm:
Perfect for a late-night picnic on the pier.
As with all our picnics where Oscar is involved,
We end up pretty wet — whether we’ve been swimming or not!
Life is pretty good though:
Jump, enjoy life, repeat.

Last week, spring was in full bloom
With no ice on the lake
And swimming dogs in the sunset.
Today, it’s the spring equinox
And we celebrate with a silver dawn
And lots of snow.
The swans formed a heart
That seemed to be saying:
Don’t complain – just enjoy!

It continues mild here for the time of year,
So, you won’t need too many layers as you join us for a walk.
Let’s start off with a refreshing swim.
As the sun rises over the horizon, it creates
And electricity lines glow like
While the leaves on the birch trees
Shine like luminous earrings.
Breathe deeply – this is where we get our energy from.
Enough energy to finish off our long walk
With a splash.

There’s nothing quite like a lovely long walk, a swim and a shake, and breakfast with your best buddy.

What can I say?
Oscar loves water – even if there are still some ice floes in it!
When you feel the impulse to soar, why content yourself with walking?

First comes the thinking; the temptation that is almost too much to bear.
Then, take the plunge! A streak of gold…
A glorious splash heralds fulfillment.
Submerged in delicious abandon…
Leading to satisfaction.
