Lake Memories

This is one of the lakes in our neighborhood.  No motor boats are allowed on it, so it's always very peaceful.  There are three homes and one street between us and the lake.  Whether we're coming or going there's the pretty lake.  My son learned to fish here, fed many ducks and birds, released baby turtles and eventually helped Mama Ducks with their babies get here safely.  We have walked our pups by this lake hundreds of times.  My all time favorite memories of this lake are definitely my son and I sitting together on one of the benches and talking about life.  

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!  Happy & safe Monday to you all!  

Morning of Mama Mallard and her babies walking to the lake.



Our favorite bench was closer to the lake, but they moved it a few years ago.

What a beautiful lake and surrounding grounds! I think I would be there all the time! Are there lots of fish, was it hard for him to catch anything?

It's a beautiful lake, Marie. We are blessed to have a few nice lakes in our area. They don't allow motor boats, either, and I'm glad. It's such a nice place to sit and watch the sunset and just relax where it's quiet. Quiet, that is, unless someone is having a big to-do at one of the shelter houses! :)
Enjoy your week!

What a pretty lake. My house backed up to a lake when I was growing up. I miss that.
