|(My niece Lizzie checking out the sparkling waters one morning.)|
|Pretty swan family, and not-so-pretty plants growing up near the water's surface|
|The lake did make a nice background for pictures, though!|
Also, there was a stairwell down to the water with a locked gate at the top to help prevent the kids from going to the dock on their own, but it didn't always work, which was a little scary. So we learned our lesson! If we ever get a lake house again--when our kids are older--we'll make sure that it's a good swimming lake with safe access!
Sam liked to play on the stairs and the dock (unfortunately!)
Luckily for us, there was a good swimming lake just up the road--
This would be a great place for a lake house! Such nice, clean water!
