The life of a Local

I live in a resort town. There are some tricks a person learns to survive living in a place where everyone else comes for holidays. Our small city is placed right on a lake, and there are a few other beautiful lakes with in an hours driving distance. So summer can get a little crazy. And the beaches can get very very full. We spend a lot of time like everyone at the beach on hot summer days, but there are a few survival skills we have learned.

One thing is that we have sought out the not as well known beaches. For those days when you just don't want to be in a huge group of people this is wonderful secret.

The second is that most of the tourists spend all day out in the hot sun, then go home for supper and the evening. We go to the beach when everyone else is going home. It is perfect. The beaches are quieter, the air is cooler, and it feels so good to cool off before coming home to bed. Everyone sleeps so much better. And the amazing sunsets we have seen.
Here let me share some photo's.

Enjoy your summer, wherever you are.
