Day two at the lake included lots of…well, swimming in the lake!! Seriously, the water is crisp, clean and fresh and you actually feel cleaner coming out of it. (Don’t worry, I still showered… sometimes).
For the past ten summers that Irving’s been coming to the lake with me, he’s been DYING to swim to the pier. Of course, you really can’t do that since it has heavy boat traffic, but he still wanted to swim as far as he could.
My mom is a really good swimmer (she used to teach and swim competitively!) So she and Irving swam away. I’m a pretty good swimmer, but my endurance isn’t that great right now. So Chris and I grabbed a fun noodle and tried to catch up!
Once we got there, I gave Irving my noodle and swam back completely unassisted! Swim for the win! I’m paranoid about touching the slimy rocks on the bottom, so it forced me to keep kicking!
Per summer vacation rules, lunch was served on paper plates right on the beach! (Chicken Parm Leftovers! YAY!)
Fun fact: Those blue napkins are from our bachelorette party on the lake!
I’m not sure what we did between lunch and dinner… probably reading, swimming, reading, swimming.
And then we eat again! Do you ever feel like that’s all you do on vacation is eat? At least the company was good! Beers for the boys!
They were working hard out there in the heat!
These guys are soul mates. Seriously. They’re so funny when they get together. Maybe they’ll be brother-in-laws someday (no pressure!)
After dinner, we went for an evening walk to burn off some of our eats from the week.
I’d walk more often if my route looked like this! How pretty is that channel.
This is Irving and my dream boat. It’s a Speedster. A mix between a jetski and a boat. Looks like so much fun!
I used one walk to justify a whole day of eating… and then rewarded myself with ice cream. Healthy living? What healthy living?
What a perfect, relaxing day. Everything about it was just perfect. 🙂
