Nothings prettier than the view from a lake on a summer's evening.
We had a nice evening. We went to a small lake town about 25 miles away, where my son Josh goes to camp each year. We rode the Dixie, an eighty year old landmark in North Webster, and thoroughly enjoyed our hour on the lake.
The captain for tonight's boat ride is a businessman that has a printing company in three small towns; ours included. We thought that he looked familiar!
The boat docks in the town park, and remains there all year long.
They have a tiny beach, and a pizza joint nearby, making this area popular for the lake visitors and summer tourists.
We skimmed the shoreline, and listened to the interesting narration, telling of the history of the paddle wheeler.
Jim saved popcorn to feed the ducks after the ride. It's customary to dump all the popcorn after each run, and the ducks were ready and waiting! What a swarm. There were large groupings of swans on the lake as well, which we thought unusual.
Twelve years ago today, Jim and I got hitched after knowing each other less than three months. Another middle aged crazy thing we did...the first of many, come to find out!
