Buffalo Lake Dayzz

Oh how I loved my summer days lounging on the shores of Lake Eerie. Flying into the small airport in Buffalo then hitting the casino before arriving at a waterfront cottage for a week of quiet bliss. A couple years we even make it to gawk at the ever impressive Niagara Falls, a must see.

Visiting the Houck family getaway was always a treat that I cherished. I thoroughly enjoyed grabbing my kindle to get lost while dangling from a hammock in the brisk lakeside daily breeze and always taking too many naps. Our daily walks along the shore in search of washed up sea glass were frequently met with an awesome sunset trying to peak through the clouds. Nightly card games kept us entertained, as well as an occasional pop up guitar hero concert. And we ate home cooked meals every day, which I would so much rather indulge in than going out all the time.

There were no worries or clocks to live by at the lake house. A total disconnect from the pressures of the real world. Time inched by but, on the other hand, my long weekends always flew by way too fast.

Until we connect again, I have the calm of that last sunset to hold me over.
