As I sit in the midst of a busy week, I can’t help but think back to a much less busy time–the lake. For 7 blissful days, the world is much more quiet, life is a bit more simpler, and life is considerably less hectic. Every year, our family packs the camper and boat to head to Kerr Lake for a week of family time and relaxation. Filled with hammock naps, fishing, kayaking, boat rides, reading, and campfires, the week at the lake is a treasured time that flies by all too quickly. It is something that we look forward to, but is bittersweet as it marks the end of summer. At least there are memories and photos to visit on weeks like this one where busy and hectic are the norm.
We started with 2 tubes, and by the end of the trip, we had broken them both…oops!
I feel as though, it is a right of passage for all Linton boys to learn to drive the boat.
On one day, we always head to the marina to feed the ducks and fish, and grab some ice cream.
Islands are everywhere at the lake, and it is one of the boys’ favorite things to explore them.
