I hope you're enjoying your summer. I try never to gloat about great ice cream weather, since this is New England, and the weather can change faster than you can say clam chowda. Having disclaimed that, it's some great ice cream weather we've been having, seems like since March. I know there's more to do on a sunny 90 degree day in July than eat ice cream, and I hope your summer has been full of all the fun things that go along with it, whether it be frolicking in your favorite secret swimming hole, golfing a quick nine before the sun gets too hot, or sparking up the bbq with friends.
I recently got a chance to spend an afternoon paddling around one of the lakes in the DAR in Goshen. If you haven't been there, you really should. It's peaceful, beautiful, and just a great place for a hike, a camp-out, or a swim.
There was a giant wall of fish tanks and terrariums that rose out of the sand just at the entry to the beach. The rusty sand beach was full of maroon Adirondack chairs, a dock with a diving board stood enticingly just beyond the American flag that waved confidently just above a big screen used to show movies and nature slide shows at night.
