getaway day pt.1 - smith mountain lake

[7.30.2011 view from one of the many marinas at smith mountain lake]

i love to swim, but i don't get to swim often because most pools use chlorine which will wreak havoc on my hair(i know, i know...) so when our yearly smith mountain lake trip comes around i get really excited!  now i'm pretty new to this lake.  it's a man made lake that was constructed in the 1960's.  it's about 3 hours away from where i live in virginia, but it's a pretty drive and this lake is worth it.  

we always go with my biological mum, step dad, and little sister who lives in CA.  it's nice to be able to spend time with all of them because our schedules are so different, and we don't get to see meg much because of distance.  yesterday was one of the first days in a long time where i truly felt like i was getting a break and actually able to relax.
