A mid-summer trip to Lake Barkley is like lemonade on a warm day. Or Sweet tea in the afternoon while the sun beats down. In other words, it’s good for the soul.
This July we made the long trek in the mini to be with family. To breathe deep. To let the flies buzz by and feel the cool lake water on our toes. To watch the sun set in the clear sky as the boat came in after a long (but too short) afternoon on the waters. Too much fun and the time went too quickly.
For me, Lake Barkley and being with Aunt Cindy and Uncle Tommy is refreshment to my inmost soul. I come feeling tired, and always leave feeling filled (mostly with good food and love).
