Sunday, August 12: This morning, after lying in bed for a long while lost in Corelli’s Mandolin, I take a walk around our little shoreline of Deep Creek Lake.
Deep Creek Lake is the largest inland body of water in the state of Maryland. It covers 3,900 acres and has about 69 miles of shoreline. Like all lakes in Maryland, it is man-made. It was constructed in the 1920s for hydro-electric power generation.
Here are some of the lakeside houses I pass during my walk, and their respective docks. Some of the homes along the lake have interesting names: Under the Moon, Beyond Bliss, Wine & Roses, Serendipity, Drift Away, A Thousand Welcomes, Panacea, It’s a Wonderful Life, Changes in Attitude, Ambiance, Snuggl’Inn, Bedazzled, Changes in Attitude, It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere, Heaven on Seven, Ski Boots ‘N Bathing Suits, Just Breathe Inn, Minutes to Memories, Casablanca, Dream Catcher, Weather or Not, Imagine That!, Martini Mountain, Da-Ja-View, Wisp Me Away, Peaceful Easy Feelin’, Grin-n-Bear-It, and Hakuna Matata.
