Cool, cool water

Swimming in the marsh

My parents' camp, where we all gather every year during the first week of July, is a peninsula of oak trees next to a big marsh. Their dock juts into a creek that winds through cattails. It's a lovely place to take a swim after you've just come back from a morning run in the hot sun. (That's my youngest sister in the photo -- I'm not a runner.)

It looks blissful.
No running from me either. Swimming on the other hand...

When we lived on the lake often I would go for a quick swim at the end of a hot day just to enjoy the coolness of the water:)

Now that I can no longer be at the Land of No Internets just up the road from you, I depend more and more on these lovely pictures. Thanks for posting them!

Brought me back to my uncle's cabin on a canal off a lake. Icy water, but so welcome on a hot day.
