ABC Wednesday - E is for Empty

E is for Empty.............

an empty picnic table beside the lake

Going to the lake on a hot summer day is something we have always enjoyed as a family.

This little lake is usually crowded during these hot days and finding a place to sit is hard to do. The picnic tables are usually snatched up early in the morning and the blanket spots on the ground are gone too.

Now, if you wait until dinner time to get your dip in the lake - you will hit the lottery every time.

Packing up dinner and taking it to the lake is perfect - everybody else is leaving to go home and make their dinners.

You get your choice of picnic tables and the best swimming areas without having tons of others around.

It has worked for us for over 26 years!

This is the third round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
