Splashing through Summer
About 20 minutes from where I live is the tiny town of Montreat, population 700, situated back up in a mountain cove. Lake Susan (I wrote about this lovely lake in a previous post here.) feeds Flat Creek, the creek that flows through Robert Lake Park, a favorite place for families to bring young children during the summer. The park, named after one of the children of a prominent Montreat fmaily, has a lovely playground but the creek itself is the place to be as far as the kids go.
I went by a few weeks back when the native rhododendrons were in bloom and it was lovely - shaded, with the sound of water rushing by and the town children enjoying the cool waters.
