Life in the Wild Woods

Standard

Last weekend some friends of ours invited us up to Lake Wildwood outside of Grass Valley.  My parents had asked us for years, “when are you going to move this way?”  I always said, “never!”  What I didn’t know was what a little gem of a lake this place has.

We went out on their pontoon party boat to view the entire lake.  The homes were beautiful and everyone on the lake was very friendly, waves all around, (no pun intended.)

We stopped for a bit at one of their friends houses and sat out by the lake.  It was such an easy pace and we talked and laughed until we needed to return back to the dock.

The full moon began to rise over the hills and the magic of the place completely set in on me.  There are experiences in your life that just seem easy.  This location has that peaceful easy feel to me.

I couldn’t wait to see the sunrise on Lake Wildwood.  The air was still as the fine moving mist rose across and off the lake.

We had to leave early because we had a conflict with another event.  There are days when I wish I never had those sorts of conflicts.  I could have enjoyed this view for…..well…..forever!
