It was a calm evening. No wind. And the lake was as smooth as glass. The sun is setting almost half an hour later now than a few days ago. I left the lake at seven p.m. and it was still light. Warm and peaceful. I feel so blessed to live half a block away from the lake. Every evening Chico comes and pesters me for our evening walk. Sometimes I am busy doing something else and I am reluctant to go but as soon as I get to the lake I am happy Chico made us take the walk.
