The sun burned fierce and hot from the moment I first saw it until just a moment ago, when it disappeared behind the mountain. Now, the day is cooler. The lake relaxes into serenity as the noisy motor boats head back to their homes for the night. Occasionally, a woman laughs in the distance, freely enjoying her holiday weekend. A chilly breeze blows through the nearby stand of hemlock trees and across my sun-soaked skin. At last, the crisp, chilled wine - a gentle,magical elixir - effortlessly washes away the demanding, unbroken heat of this perfect, summer-like holiday.
