Morning Swim

May's calendar image, "Morning Swim"

Each of us loves the lake for different reasons. Some of these overlap and others, well, don’t. I’ve spent a lot of time at the beach for sunrises, and I am rarely alone. There are others — like me — who come down to watch the daily show that is the sunrise. And then there are the open-water swimmers. These hardy souls go swimming in the lake all year long. Except for a few days of inclement weather, they take the plunge every morning and swim significant distances. While I love the water and grew up swimming in lakes, I can safely say I will never join this intrepid group. I admire their perseverance, but at that hour I prefer being on shore with my camera. I love that we all find our own joy in the lake. Thanks for letting me share mine with you!
