It was a cool day, again, so we mostly stayed inside the cabin passing the time with crosswords and puzzles. We even got the atlas out at one point to learn the mountain ranges.
By the afternoon, we were all tired of waiting for the sun and antsy from being in the cabin, so we went down to the dock just to spite the clouds. We hung out in the boat for a bit and then said to hell with it we’re going swimming. As we hit the water, a huge rainstorm opened up above us. It was unreal swimming in the lake while the rain poured down around us. It was coming down so hard that it looked like the drops were coming up out of lake, instead of down onto it. While I was bobbing out there, my eyes were level with the water and the effect of all those raindrops bouncing up made the entire lake look like it had a blanket of mist just above the water line. It was an incredible sight, completely worth the cold dip in the lake.
We shivered our way back up the hill and spent most of the evening around the fire pit warming back up. The temperature dropped a bit and the water was pretty rough, but I slept on the boat again with Decan. He snuggled up under the covers and kept me warm while the lake tossed and turned beneath us.
