As a sign of just how chilly the spring and early summer have been, I have not been to the lake until this afternoon. After summer weather was beginning to look like it would never arrive, a serious heat wave is definitely upon us and I knew that the water was going to feel great. I was, however, surprised by how cool it felt, and even though I was finally able to immerse myself, I was pretty disheartened to discover that I just couldn't stay in the drink for very long. Stasia was, alas, more than a little disappointed when I had to make an exit. I was pretty disappointed too. Fortunately, Stasia's dad showed up and took over the role of Lifter-in-Chief.
