Summer in Waiting

      It is one of those perfect spring days when the air is clear and the contrast between green trees and blue sky can break your heart. The view of Lake Pleasant is taken from Melody Lodge, a favorite place for lunch and dinner. I see that the lupines are blooming in the wonderful perennial garden there.
      I meandered during my lunch hour, stopping for the first soft-serve cone of the season at King of the Frosties, then taking the long way around the lake, back to the office. This time of year is pretty quiet. Tourists are waiting for children to finish school. We are waiting for tourists.
