I have just returned from our annual visit to Bayfield, Wisconsin.
Four amazing days!
Lake Superior is as breathtaking as ever. The Apostle Islands are more majestic than I remember.
The air was so fresh. The sun so bright. Even a full day of rain provided an unexpected air of tranquility. I read for hours. Finished one book and started another. I can’t tell you the last time I read an entire book.
We took boat rides to some of the islands, and spent a day on a beautiful and quiet beach. We watched kayakers paddle to across the water. I dipped my toes and then some. There is just something about the lake life. It’s … undemanding. I could get used to it.
I relaxed. I walked along the lake. I slept. Like a baby! Deep, peaceful, dreamless sleep. It’s been forever…
And I paddle boarded for the first time ever.
I loved it! I must get myself one of these. This is the land of 10,000 lakes. No reason I can’t put one to good use.
I came home determined to change one or two little things. Relaxing should be a more regular part of my life.
