Swimming on Mayo Lake

After working on odds and ends in the heat yesterday and this morning... Neil announced "I don't know about anyone else but I am hooking up the boat and going swimming on the lake!" Needless to say the kids went crazy and started running around getting everything they felt they needed to take with us... smile.

Once we got the boat loaded up we decided to go out on Mayo Lake, which is the small lake right near to us. The boat landing is only about a mile away so we were in the lake in a wink. We hadn't been out on this lake yet so we tolled around trying to find a sandy place to go swimming. What we ended up finding was a small island that had a sand bar to the mainland. We swam for about an hour when a storm blew in and it started to rain.
It was a torrential downpour! With the boat moving the raindrops felt like sleet. It took about 15 minutes to get back to the boat landing in the rain. It continued to rain most of the afternoon, which the pastures really needed.
