Indian Summer

Indian Summer

Along the line of mirror lake water, bright crimson trees stand, and all day long the wild birds call, until the sun sets over the land. There are few places as serene and peaceful as a lake house in the early fall. Time moves as slowly as the water that makes gentle ripples when a bird lands on its surface or a child tries to skim a rock. Arriving at this home away from home is always blissful as you realize the feeling of chilled-out relaxation and quietness remains the same as the visits in the years before. The adirondack chairs and dock are still there, inviting you to grab your new book and cozy up for a while. The old oak tree stands strong, holding onto the rope swing that the kids rush for, the moment they remember it's there. Everyone scatters to their favorite corner of the house, feeling content that this free time is made just for them. 

Vibrant sunrises meet days filled with the aura of glowing turning leaves. The days activities always end with gatherings to eat and drink. Long walks, bird watching and collecting sticks for the campfire are loved times for the whole family. Canoeing on the smooth mirror lake is a popular thing to do in the afternoon and when it is warm enough, the bravest souls jump into the cool water and swim around with all the energy in the world. Let's fire up the BBQ to cook the juicy steaks and perhaps a freshly-caught fish if it didn't get away. Pour some wine and settle in for a few hours of music, conversation and board games. Another radiant sunset rolls around and it's time to stroll out on the dock, wrapped up in a warm blanket, relaxing in your chair, behold the epic reflection of the sun and turning leaves.
