Something I’ve always loved about being on a lake is the morning fog when the air is colder than the water…
I was up at 2am last night for various unimportant reasons, and it seemed uncharacteristically dark outside.
Usually I can see lights in yards around the lake, reflected moonlight, just… light- however distant or faint.
So last night I had to investigate this new dark and I went out on the deck in the (literally) freezing cold.
I couldn’t see the lake. I couldn’t see my railing! The fog was close and thick and moving and it was blocking out all the lights on the lake.
And absolutely silent.
Then I looked up and 5 feet above my head was sharp, clear, black sky filled with thousands of stars.
I stood there and watched the fog swirl until the cold seeped too far into my skin. It was like standing on a cloud.
Now you know why it will be worth visiting us in the fall. 🙂
