Here is a look back at one of the highlights of my summer. This amazing tree frog was one of them. He or she sat quietly on the screen door of the lake house I rented for a week. Killer camouflage, eh?
Oh the screened porch on that house! We spent so much time in it, enjoying dinner overlooking the lake every evening.
Speaking of the lake, it was crystal clear, with a sandy bottom. We did see fish and quite a few turtles, but there were no weeds, no leeches, and no muck. Perfect for swimming.
The dog was in heaven.
There was a nice, sandy beach – natural not man-made. It was ideal for launching my kayak, or corgi swimming.
I hate the summer crowds at the RI beaches and yearn for peace. I found it here.
What makes this place so special is that the shoreline has been LEFT ALONE. No lawns, no walls, no rocks painted white. No motorboats permitted either. There are a few houses but they are almost invisible from the water. For me, it was paradise.
