Recently I was asked if we ever take living in a beautiful area for granted. My lovely wife and I do not. We still stop to watch the wildlife and sunsets.
Today we decided to take the Sea Eagle 420 kayak out on the lake. It was a pleasant paddle with osprey overhead and loons checking us out. There’s a lot less motor traffic on the lake since the price of gas went up.
After our paddle we went for a swim. The water was just cool enough to be refreshing but warm enough to be comfortable.
In the evening I took the scooter on a long ride down back country roads. There was very little traffic.
If you are going to live in a place that’s a vacation destination it only makes sense to stop and smell the roses. Otherwise, what’s the point?
