With Family in Lenox

We are spending a week on a lovely lake in Lenox, MA — a lucky custom of ours for the past several years. We’re renting a modest, cozy cottage facing beautiful Laurel Lake, and for the last few days we’ve been fortunate to have Annie, Gabe, and Louie staying with us. It has been a lazy but whirlwindy time of swimming, kayaking, watching hummingbirds, sharing stories, eating, and just eagerly and understandingly being with each other.

Monday morning, July 29 … a quiet, easy paddle on the lake. No other persons present – just a few birds whistling and diving above us, and some small lake creatures creating soft ripples on the surface every so often.

a happy paddler
