I have really been dreaming about living a lake life lately. Maybe I have watched too many episodes of HGTV Lakefront Bargain Hunt. Maybe it is just because it gets too darn hot here in Florida in the summertime and a swim in a refreshing lake (without alligators) sounds wonderful.
The beach is lovely, think about walking on a near empty beach early in morning, or sipping a glass of wine on the beach watching the sunset. BUT, when you walk back in your house, you are likely going to bring sand back into the house…gritty sand all over your floor, your furniture, on your towel when go to dry yourself off after a shower. Yep, beaches mean sand. Then there is those pesky sharks. I know, I am not likely to be bit by a shark, but I would rather not take a chance. What about those jellyfish? We have had a rash of jellyfish stings here in Florida. Then there is the money thing, I know I could buy lakefront property for much less than beachfront. Okay, yes, the beach is nice, but for me, after weighing all of the possibilities, I think I am a lake girl!
I could see the grands running down the stairs and jumping off the dock into the cool refreshing water, laughter and whoops of joy echoing off of the water. Of course, if I am going to live on a lake, I am going to want to have a boat, right? If I have a boat, I am going to want to have a boathouse. The one above would do just fine!
I could happily spend afternoons lazing on a hanging lounger at water’s edge. I wonder who is preparing dinner?
Do you do this kind of daydreaming? What is your dream spot? A lake, a beach, the mountains?
