FLASHBACK FRIDAY: A FINAL EVENING ON LAKE JUNEBUG

Gentle Readers . .  and Maxwell,

I first published A FINAL EVENING ON LAKE JUNEBUG on October 6, 2014. It's had 232 page views, but it won't complain if more people look at it. I think it's a good time to read it again, or read it for the first time, because Lake Junebug overflows from daily thunderstorms.

A unique feature in this post is the appearance of the late, handsome Harper––a smooth collie/malinois mix. Harper plays two roles. First, he is the "wildlife." The he returns as the suave, dignified guest, Monsieur Malinois. Exactly the kind of dude you meet during a vacation on Lake Junebug.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug, proprietor



Many of you have written posts about the arrival of autumn. It's still warm here in Northern Florida, but it's pleasant. The humidity is tolerable. While the weather is nice, I recommend you take one last vacation for the year. You need an evening on Lake Junebug.

My prices are low (however much I owe the IRS so about $4,000 and that can be a group rate if you want to bring some pals or the whole family). It's rained a great deal lately so the lake is full. Notice the trees reflected in the beautiful clear water:



Architecture buffs will enjoy attractions such as the steps that lead down to the lake:



Look at the beautiful vegetation right next to the lake:



You'll feel as if you're visiting the Galapagos. Wildlife surrounds Lake Junebug:



Monsieur Malinois, I presume? You meet the elite when you vacation on Lake Junebug:



The dining area, where our chef prepares gourmet meals on the grill:


Another lovely view of the deluxe amenities:



The fence guarantees privacy should you want to indulge in a little skinny dipping:



I haven't set up the hammock yet, but it's a hammock for two. Romance guaranteed. If you bring the kids, they can sleep on the deck itself. They'll be thrilled by this outdoor adventure.

Be sure to book your trip soon. If you wait too long, the party will be over.

    1. Everyone feels at home on Lake Junebug. Penelope has been peeing in the lake, but I don't think it will harm the guests.

  4. I think that "the steps that lead down to the lake" beat the hell out of a standard dock any day!

    1. Aren't they appealing? Simply walk down and enter the sparkling water.

  5. Sounds great! All ya have to do is stock Lake Junebug with some fish, and it'll be an ideal getaway spot. Might even be able to fish from that hammock... :)

    Have a super weekend.

    1. We don't have fish, but you can catch tadpoles.

    1. It depends on the package you select and how much work you do to assist in the maintenance of this stunning property.

  7. I've always wanted to rent a lakeside place. Why not yours?

    1. We've finally had a couple of days without rain. The water is receding.

    2. I know all about excess water adventures. We had a major excavation project in our yard this summer in hopes of alleviating basement flooding issues.

  9. LOL! Love that post! It deserves a repeat under the circumstances--hehe! ;)

  10. Heh. Heh. I'll have to rethink my travel plans and head south.

    1. You'd feel so happy and relaxed on the deck at Lake Junebug (offer does not include money-back guarantee).

  11. You are making the best of a bad situation ... sign me up for a spot on the deck. I'm not crazy about water but I love a good deck chair beside it.

    1. I've booked you for a chair on the deck. Will that be cash or credit?

    2. Sure! I saw a great recipe for stuffed zucchini on a blog. You can make it for all the guests.

  12. We have a similar lake in one of our downtown parking areas.It is called Lake Mianowski after one of our former mayors. It has similar features to your lake and wildlife area.

    1. I'm sure it's intended as a great compliment to the former mayor.

  13. Hahahaha if I come visit, I'll bring a canoe. ;-P

    1. Before additional drainage work was done in my neighborhood, people one street over from me could canoe down their road.

  14. Haha, JJ! I remembered this post from its title ~ It was delightfully ironic, and I enjoyed revisiting it! Have a good one, my friend!

  15. Nothing like a swampy backyard, er, lake to keep life interesting, yes? That was a fun read, but I hope your yard dried out in the meantime. Monsieur Malinois was a handsome dude. I'd love to hang out in your dining area. Cheers!

    1. Storms have moved in the last few days but have left only a few drops of rain instead of pools. The water is receding. I hope it continues. Monsieur Malinois was a love bug. I miss him. The dining area will be more attractive over the winter. It's so hot and humid now.

    1. It was a headache day, but I still got a little bit done. I also watched quite a bit of news after what happened in Charlottesville.

      Delete
    2. Hope you're feeling much better and headache free.
      Although the Charlottesville situation is enough to bring it raging to the forefront.

      Delete
    3. Thank you, Sandra. As much as the situation in Charlottesville bothers me, I refuse to let it give me a headache. I get headaches from whatever happens to be tossing around pollen outside or because my eyes don't like light.

  18. Or for those who prefer less water you can visit the urban desert housing complex where I live. Views of a town center shopping development are available from my back yard.

    Looking forward to your return to BOTB.

    1. A shopping development certainly beats the house you can see from my backyard. It's the house where obnoxious little boys go to torture me.

  19. Are you loaning out WDW to join a single woman on the hammock for two? If that's the case, I'll pay more than $4000. I hear he's worth it.

    Love you, silly lady.
