Actually we are on Lake Winnisquam in New Hampshire. It is right next to Lake Winnipesake where the classic movie On Golden Pond was filmed with Henry Fonda, Jane Fonda and Katherine Hepburn. The cabin is set on the beautiful lake. With the calm waters, passing Chris Craft motor boats and the loons in the background it was like being on the movie set. We even have fun family dynamics to boot!
What completely surprised me is that these big lakes are a swimmers paradise. The waters are so calm, clear and the water temp is “just right”. It’s absolutely perfect for swimming!!! I started my mornings by donning my speedo and inflating my new bright orange safety buoy and going for a dip. Only for the briefest of moments when you jump in is the water cool but after that it is perfect. To swim along the shore in the still waters in the serenity of the early morning and watch the sunrise was magical. I would chart my own course as I swam from point to point. It is hard to tell but I would guess I swam 1.5-2.0 miles everyday. Loved it!
