TRINITY LAKE

The first time I went to Trinity Lake http://totalescape.com/destin/lakes/trinitylake.html was when Lee and I went with Doug and Kay White (long divorced) about 28 years ago. I don't think we've missed a summer since. Our companions have changed (the Jones', Blairs, McCartneys, Berrys) but the good times and good memories continue. We used to laugh at the antics of our children, now it's the antics of grandchildren. Ammon cracked me up last weekend when, after watching 'First Knight' he donned on the covers of VHS movies on his arms and legs, picked up a stick and as he called it, became a "Queeng". Hilarious!!
I love, in fact, savor, my time at Trinity. I love the smells, the weather, the views, the feel of cold lake water, and the sun!! I look forward all year to Memorial Day and the start of " lake time" and then dread all summer the coming of Labor Day and it's end. As I get older I even sometimes ponder how many summers I have left of Trinity Lake. And when we retire and move that is one of the things I'll miss most.

Don't feel like a peeping Tom! I look at your blog sometimes too. I wish I could spend the weekends at the lake!!! Have a great time with all your family. That will be so much fun for you guys.

I love Trinity lake and I'm so excited I get to come for the last trip of the summer! I have been missing the lake all summer long. So many memories there... I never thought about the fact that you won't have the lake anymore when you move! We'll just have to find you a new lake you can spend your summers at in Denver!

I love the lake too! It is always sad going for the last time each summer. Now that I am getting older and going to have to get a job its sad becuase I wont be able to go to the lake as much!

I can't imagine not spending summers there. It will be strange. I love that place.
