I found this image several years ago. It reminded me of a couple summers as a child when my family lived in Maryland while my dad worked in D.C.
Two summers in a row we went to Tupper Lake in the Adirondacks and stayed at a lovely little cabin that was right along the shoreline. It had a screened in porch where I slept and a lawn which ran down to the lake. There was also a small dock with a couple of rowboats.
I spent my days floating on the water on an inflatable air mattress, sitting on the lawn reading books and coloring books, and going for rides in the boat. Just as in this photo there was a bridge to the left of where we stayed.
On one occasion after I'd gotten out of swimming in the lake and laid down on the lawn I was told by my dad to stay perfectly still. I had no idea what was going on but knew it wasn't good from the sound of his voice. Turns out I had leeches all over my back. I don't remember how they got them off of me and I can't say for sure I ever went back in Tupper Lake.
