Picnic at the Lake


It has been 2 and half years since I started living near the lake. I alway wanted to live waterside wherever a river, lake or sea and I've got luck to live near the lake and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. 

As the weather warms, more and more people turn out around the lake to enjoy nature in their ways. On a bright day, I couldn't help but go on a proper picnic by the lake for the first time. I just grabbed a blanket, something to read, small healthy snacks and drinks to the sunny place. I wanted to linger over sunshine and breeze so that I prepared berries, apples, lemonades, and green pesto pasta salad in a glass jar.


I think that taking simple food or snacks in a jar is a good idea. It was easy to carry and eat. Also, I  brought an unique item which was leaf mat from my friend, cotone, to add soft and warm mood. It also functioned as a tray and supported all the cups, jars, and bowls firmly on the blanket. 


My hubby and I spent time reading a book, playing a ball with our dog, then snacking on healthy food when we felt a bit hungry. Ah! We also blew bubbles as well like kids. Usually, there are a lot of things that you can do activities such as a boat, canoe, or kayak.  However, we just wanted to relax fully. Sometimes, you just need to do nothing and take it easy. We just lay down on the grass and watched those people who were enjoying peaceful moments on the lake.  

There was also very romantic and poetic scene. I found that one girl sat alone under the tree, softly strumming a guitar. She was so beautiful, and that song was so lovely. She literally made our picnic day perfect.
