Lake friends are the best friends. We’ve been spending every August long with my best friend & second family for the past 20 years.
Throwing it back to my pajama wearing Nana (Frances) and her best friend Ellen-Marie in Port Huron.
“Ellen and I did bad things. They had a dance floor at the park. We’d go dancing every Friday night and one time my friends dared me to dive into the St. Clair River. We’d cross the trestle railway tracks dangerously - it’s a wonder I’m alive today. I don’t know… I’d have to have been NUTS to do that. But I did it!
… See what I’m saying, we were bad.”
She also mentioned the 2 of them made matching Elvis Presley skirts. AND that their “rebelliousness” continued during the school year too, referencing when she skipped school & paid $3 to see The King of Rock And Roll from the nosebleed seats at the Maple Leaf Gardens.
Perhaps refrain from jumping off bridges into rivers & skipping school, BUT don’t forget to surround yourself with your favourite lake friends this weekend.
Happy August Long!!
