We live near the best pond.
It is small enough to swim across in times of high energy or people overboard, it is big enough to circumnavigate in an hour, it has blueberry bushes all around the shore, and a campground and a swimming beach. The swimming beach has shade all day, so you can choose how much to bake in the sun, and have a cool place to retreat to at any time.
I rashly told Aerin that if it was not raining and there were no thunderstorms on the weather radar that we could sail Sunday afternoon. So we did. There was very very little wind, but there was enough to push the two little boats around. Having ridden my bike for almost two hours earlier that day I chose to stay ashore and read (no socks. Huh.) and take pictures. This is one of my favorites.
It really is a sweet little pond.
