Summer days, paddle boarding, and more.

What do summer days mean to you?   Summer days are some of the best days, and on the first day of summer, I mark the occasion by taking one of my puppy nephews out to paddle board and run crazy. Something about seeing the joy dog showed when he saw the paddle board and spent some time frolicking in the water before getting on the paddle board. As we supped to the other side of the lake he would sit calmly and watch the birds on the water and when they were no longer where he could see them, he stretched out on the paddle board for a bit of last leisure time in the sun. While occasionally slapping at the water and trying to catch the droplets he caused to spray up.
