This is a first for me, ever, but I am linking my Alphabe-Thursday with Thematic Photographic.
HAPPINESS- Is my H Letter for this week with Jenny and Alphabe-Thursday- and happiness.
ON THE WATER
The secret to happiness, for me, has always been connected to water as well. When I long for the ocean the Atlantic is about 1,600 miles away, but the splendid, Lake Superior is under two hundred miles away. Far more reachable.
Even better, and closer yet, is this idyllic location that sits across the street from where my mother lived out the last ten years of her life. Another secret to happiness, for me, keeping the memory of my mother as alive as the water that resides here, day after day.
A twenty-seven acre community park just waiting for visitors.
I've found that keeping people in our thoughts can make five years feel like only yesterday.
It's so easy to reap the benefits of such a glorious place, when it's only steps away.
Just a short drive away is-
Lake Minnetonka, another unique get-away for water bound folks. But it has it's draw backs this time of year as you can see below. Although, there seems to be an unlimited amount of parking available.
Win, win right!
Win, win right!
As pictured above, Lake Superior offers more than a dramatic body of water, but also, many fables and tales of being one who does not give up her dead. It carries inside my heart a gazillion amount of memories that flow as much through me as each drop of Lake Superior continues to hold as well.
But in all fairness, does it really matter how big a body of water it is? Seems to me, even the slightest amounts of water, waiting idly under a gorgeous blue sky, still carries reflections that give back countless joys.
