A Swim at Night

There is nothing more intoxicating than to go swimming at night.
To be able to walk out your back door, with complete privacy…
Gentle lanterns  ringing the the pool or lake…
Complete solitude, no sound but that of nature and gently lapping water…
Diving into that dark, velvety water and feeling yourself gliding through it…                              Floating and looking up at the stars.
Alone…
That is the way to end a day.

  1. I love swimming at night!! In the dark!! I think I need a swimming pool. 😉

  2. One thing we’ve talked about doing is a wood-heated hot tub – just a cedar tub with an underwater wood stove. So you build a fire and let it heat the water, then you go out and hop in! That would be an awesome place to sit and watch the Northern Lights in winter!! But it sure wouldn’t be as much fun in summer.
