Lakeview at noon on Mon.

There was one or maybe two camp busses or vans in the parking lot. So all those campers had come to swim for a while.

I get a bit more exercise since the pool opens to the public at 11, and my lunch isn't until 12. So I have to park further away since all the close parking is taken by the pool visitors now.

I may feel the sun's heat just before noon as I walk about 1/3 of the way around the lake, but these people were actually playing tennis that day!

Today's Quote: Actually from July 22!
Happy birthday to Emma Lazarus, poet and playwright (22 Jul 1849-1887) [from a poem written to raise funds for building the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty] 

Give me your tired, your poor, / Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, / The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. / Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, / I lift my lamp beside the golden door!


  1. Hello, I love the view of the lake and mountains. Just lovely. Enjoy your day, wishing you a great new week!

  2. Those were the days -- playing tennis on many a hot day until me late thirties when a bad back out an end to it.
