Red Boat, Blue Boat

Red Boat, Blue Boat, L. Daniel, 8 x 6, SOLD
Many boats are moored at the Westlake Beach Marina - it's a deep cove that looks small from the lake but is surprisingly large when you get inside. David, one of the owners, grew up on this property and remembers helping his parents and grandparents repair the docks as a kid. He tells how his grandmother would cook up chili in her small cabin for them for when they came in from working. Isn't that a wonderful childhood memory? This is truly hallowed ground.

Hi Laurel,

You are reminding me of my childhood spent beside a beautiful lake. My uncles used to tinker with their boats at the docks happy as clams, while the women set to making chocolate cakes, pies, and delicious suppers (sometimes shared by three families -- very festive) and the children swam, played on rafts and were soaked in happiness.
