Summer at the Lake
Everyone has a place where they go to escape from all the pressure and worries of life. There is always that one spot that can soothe all of your problems in times of stress. For me, the lake is my ultimate cure to all of my problems. There is no better place to go than the lake on a hot summer day. While I am there all of my obligations are erased. As I stroll along I can feel the soft, smooth sand beneath my feet. I am taken in by the beautiful atmosphere that surrounds me. I am comforted by the sounds of the waves. I look into the cloudless blue sky and see the beauty of life. I close my eyes and feel the heat from the rays of sun beaming down on me and suddenly I go back in time to all of the good times I had before at the lake.
There are some distinct smells that I remember from going camping at the lake, ones that make me miss summer even more. The hickory smell of a campfire would let us know that there are marshmallows and hotdogs being roasted. You can also enjoy the sweet coconut smell of tanning lotion that my sister and I would put on when basking in the sun.
Sometimes the lake would be quiet and relaxing, which can help you clear your head and forget about everything. Other times the lake would be filled with loud motors of boats and kids laughing as they played in the water. There are always fun...
