Lake Granbury

The lake is a major draw for my hometown. As a kid I took it for granted, summers were spent making waves on a jet ski, tubing with friends, and fishing with my family. I never thought that my beloved lake could ever cease to exist. On our visit to my hometown there was still enough water (and approximately one boat ramp to launch from) that we were able to spend the day on the lake.

It was a bittersweet day. My heart hurt at the thought of one of my fondest childhood memories drying up, but I was thankful that I had the chance to spend a day on the lake with my husband and family.      "A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature." -Henry David Thoreau
