Phantom Lake

My grandparents live on this beautiful little lake up in Bellevue, Washington. This is their dock, which took a beating this last week by the grandchildren at our family reunion. Here it a rare peaceful moment, the kids were all inside playing a board game and I snuck down to capture this beautiful sunset.

I fell off the dock once and into the lake - when I was about 9. I'm not sure how it happened, one minute I was standing there (glancing nervously over my shoulder, we children aren't allowed down there unsupervised - for good reason, judging by this story) and next thing I knew I was in the water. My clearest memory of that day is what I was wearing, strangely enough. It was a Mickey Mouse t-shirt, white with a navy blue ringer collar. Glad I knew how to swim.

I forgot that you fell in the lake Linnea! I do love the picture and I'm glad you're not afraid to go back again.
