You’re going to rise up singin’ …

Sitting lakeside during the summer heat is another way to enjoy the PNW hot season.  We’ll travel through the woods to Marcus Island.

It's feeling cooler already.
It’s feeling cooler already.

Marcus Island is on Lake Roosevelt, below the settlement of Marcus.  We’ve been here before, in the winter, click here to see it then. But, now with family, we’ll cool off, playing cards into the evening.

Visiting from house to house
Visiting from tiny house to tiny house

The views from here are always a treat. Hike along the beach, or under the trees, or on the east-side among the grasses.

Looking northwest ...
Looking northwest …
... then looking southwest.
… then looking southwest.

A cool breeze off the lake makes for a summer evening that you wish would never stop. Gotta love a TC – get a little ice cream from the fridge, and play cards till the lights go out.

Evening, calm and cool.
Evening, calm and cool.

Mornings are spectacular too … a light mist covers everything until the sun rises above the eastern peaks.  An ever so gentle breeze keeps the temperature down – this is the time to walk about.

Morning light.
Morning light.

Yup, there’s a song running through my head … “Summertime, and the livin’ is easy …”

  1. And ya skipped a verse :p.

    Summertime,
    And the livin’ is easy
    Fish are jumpin’
    And the cotton is high

    Your daddy’s rich
    And your mamma’s good lookin’
    So hush little baby
    Don’t you cry

    One of these mornings
    You’re going to rise up singing
    Then you’ll spread your wings
    And you’ll take to the sky

    But till that morning
    There’s a’nothing can harm you
    With daddy and mamma standing by

    Summertime,
    And the livin’ is easy
    Fish are jumpin’
    And the cotton is high

    Your daddy’s rich
    And your mamma’s good lookin’
    So hush little baby
    Don’t you cry
