The Lake

Spring is here. As you walk out on the dock, you notice movement off to your right. You turn your head to see fish jumping on beautiful Lake Carroll, IL. Another motion past them catches your eye and you glance up to see a doe leading her fawn up a section of wooded slope. In the city, having “wild neighbors” is an aggravation, but here at our community, it’s a special benefit.

Soon you’ll be out there enjoying the water in your favorite of all the lakes in Illinois. You think about the year before, when you and the kids went jet skiing and tubing. Then there were the times when their suits hadn’t quite dried out from the morning swim before they were putting them back on for an afternoon dip. So often those dips would become marathon sessions; they would swim and play near the end of the dock until long after their fingers had wrinkled like prunes.

You can pick out your favorite spot in one of the bays of Lake Carroll, IL, where you were ice fishing not long ago. You’ll be out there again soon. Maybe one of those jumping fish will be on the end of your line, but whatever happens, you know you’ll enjoy yourself.

It certainly is going to be a long, long season. With that thought, you smile and walk back toward shore.
