A Place By the Water

Today is a good day for kites. Southerly winds are ripping a steady twenty miles per hour with gusts up to about forty five. We've been driving this afternoon and as we came into the yard you could see the pines dipping and weaving like a drunk. I bet if I tossed a paper airplane up high in the air, it would be in Atlanta in time for a late supper.
We drove up to Guntersville for a yoga class today. Jilda uses this particular type of restorative yoga in her work and I went along for the ride. It was an interesting class. Jilda's friend Gloria who sponsored the class lives in a house on the side of a mountain overlooking Lake Guntersville. The lake was visible from most of the windows in the house but the view from her deck was breath taking. I leaned on the banisters and soaked in the view as Jilda said her goodbyes.
I really like our little farm, but standing there looking out at that stunning view of the lake I thought to myself - a place on the water would be really nice.
I think the next state park we visit will be the Guntersville State Park. In looking at the website, it has scenic picnic areas, a lodge, swimming, boating hiking and golf. I don't play golf, but it's nice to know that I could play a hole or two if I got the urge.
I'm going to close out now before the wind knocks our power off and I lose what I've written. Y'all stay safe and warm. I hope you have a great Saturday.
