We spent the last week on vacation at Deep Creek Lake in Maryland. What a beautiful place. As I’ve mentioned on Warm As Pie several times, I am in love with the country. I look forward to living in a place like Deep Creek some day (Although I don’t even allow myself to imagine a home like the one in which we stayed!). Our week-long adventure in the mountains gave me a wonderful dose of nature. I hope its simplicity and its life will stay with me all summer. The sky, the trees, the water, the air–everything calls me to build a life surrounded by nature’s abundance and calm.
Nineteen of us rented a gorgeous lake-front house. We were not roughing it! But even though we slept in King-sized beds and cooked in a beautiful kitchen, we enjoyed the outdoors very much. Our men made the most of the fishing opportunities, and many of us used the fishing boats just to see the lake. My parents brought Mom’s cute little paddle boat. That was fun! We spent one day at the “beach” where we wadded and swam in the lake (brrr!).
I’ll be sharing pictures over the next few posts. Enjoy a glimpse of our getaway.
