Then yesterday I went down to my sister's lake house and we participated in the "Ring of Fire" where everyone around the lake lights flares at 9pm. It looks pretty cool - would've been cooler if it wasn't so foggy though. Some people do bonfires too... we just had a campfire for doing smores... but about a mile down the lake we could see a huge bonfire... it was impressive enough when they first lit it... but then it grew like 4 times its size! We began to wonder if someone's boat house had caught fire. :) So we took our boat down the lake to look at it, and found that it was just a huge bonfire after all. Like 20 grand pianos worth of wood or something... By the time we got to it, it had smoldered down to a pile of coals about 3 or 4 feet high and 20 or 30 feet in diameter... it looked like a lava flow. Awesome. :)
I also went swimming in the lake last night a little... alone... well someone else went in alone right before me but she got out and joined the crowd around our fire by the time I got in. So I just swam out to the floating dock and did a cannonball off it, then realized I'm not in good enough shape to be swimming around alone without a little support so I grabbed a noodle and swam up and down the property with it. :) I love swimming. I wish I could do it more so I WOULD be in shape.
But now I'm back, cuz I thought my friends were planning something for tonight, but I haven't heard anything yet. *sigh*
