All six kids embraced this family lake tradition- a swim to the other side and back! The hospitality on the other side, the great start to a day with exercise, the team activity- I don't know what inspires these teen and pre-teens to get out of bed at 7 am and jump in the lake but I'm grateful! Before and after pictures. This holiday's swim was particularly beautiful with the mist and well tempered water. We've been doing this for a number of years and the kids are getting stronger. The adults serving as guards, coach, above the water escorts count heads, retrieve wayward gliders and arrange safe passage. Life on Newark-Granville road needs to take the plunge- it is therapy, rejuvenation and release all in one- pool or lake, sea or shower- I love the water.
