on the dock


I've always loved the water. Living in Michigan for five year helped arouse this love. Beaches, waves and sand between your toes. Its a wonderful place, a place near the water. I miss being by the water.
Iowa is not the place to come if you love the water. Fields and prairies fill the land like no other state I've ever lived in. There comes a time when you just need to see something different for a change.

My friends have this lovely little pond in front of their house. I love this place because when you sit on the dock, you get just a small feeling that this isn't a pond, but a lake, and just for a moment you can pretend that you are actually seeing water for miles and miles with no land in site. It's a darling place to spot tiny frogs and take a ride in the paddle boat. This pond gives me that little taste of a water mass that I need. This little dock is my favorite.

p.s- Due to the fact that in two weeks I will be taking the ACT test, I decided to take a two week break from blogger. But, I did line up some awesome guest posters for the next two weeks! So be on the look out for them! See you in two weeks!

  12. I've always loved water too. Maybe it's because I've lived pretty much all my life with a river on the back yard. Whatever the reason is, water is definitely my element. :)

    PS. I love those pictures! So pretty.
