Lake time

Lake Marion, S.C.
Apparently what I like do to for relaxation is go to my lake, grab a Corona beer, eat macaroni and cheese with chopped up Johns Island tomatoes, read a book and paint my toe nails. Not bad for a Friday night. I took my new bike so I could go for a spin this morning.

The plastic soldier was in my backpack so I let him free to ride around.

It really is.

You could skip the nail polish part.

What book are you reading in that serene area?

Catalyst said...

Sounds ideal.

Great shots. You could send the corona shot for a print ad. Have a good ride.

LOL at your plastic soldier. One of my coworkers (a geologist) has a sock monkey that he likes to pose in his pictures. Sock money in a mine, sock monkey on a drill rig... LOL.

Lake, bike, beer, book - great combo, sounds relaxing!

I read "Return to Sullivan's Island" by Dorothea Benton Frank. I am a sucker for books written about the lowcountry.

It is pretty nice. I haven't broken out the kayaks yet but it was a good day for it. Soon.

Charlestonjoan said...

Yeah...I am not a big beer drinker but I enjoy a Corona now and then.

Charlestonjoan said...

Heheh....I am having fun with him. I've seen some with sock monkeys and the original garden gnome of course.

Lake Marion sort of freaks me out (and any lakes of the same origin.) I just can't feel completely comfortable with a body of water covering what used to be living, breathing spaces, and also...likely graves. Yeah, I know, they moved them....someone(s) are always missed. Anyway, great pics.

Actually there is an island in the lake that has a cemetery on it. I think they take people out on a boat to visit once a year. I'd like to go.

You need to get that kayak out, maybe even strap soldier boy to the bow. It could be a pleasant change for him.

you had me 'til you got to the toenails. what a beautiful set of images. i'm reading The Cove now with an interesting connection to flooding "what used to be living, breathing spaces".

Charlestonjoan said...

Hahah! Good one. I just might do that.

Charlestonjoan said...

I do paint my toes since they last so long. Manicure fingernails wouldn't last a day for me.

It is always fascinating to think of buried towns and homes left to the water.

My toenails grow about half as fast as my other nails. I don't know that they last very long because I clip them.

And, yes, I DO like beer.
