|The front yard|
I am the 5th generation of my family who has visited the lake. Our family always spent the first week after school there. We lived about 20 minutes away. We also visited over the summer and spent time with my grandparents and the extended family there. It is where most of my family memories come from.
My earliest memory is from there. I remember my great-grandmother putting me in her room for a nap. I couldn't have been older than 4, likely closer to 3.
I was lucky to get to share the lake with the 6th generation - my niece and nephew.
There is beauty in memories, the beach, the lake and family.
