Dear Sandpoint,

It's true. I love you. I love morning walks to dog beach, and watching our unlikely swimmers fetch ball after ball. I love your long quiet evenings, when dusk lasts until 10pm. I love fingers stained with cherry juice, and fresh cobbler and jam. I love wading in the lake and watching my husband catch (or not catch) trout from the dock. Boat rides, I love you too. I love croquet in the yard, the family of skunks nesting under the shed, and endless games of canasta. I love my son throwing rocks in the creek, and watching his first fireworks display. I love your storms, violent and quick, clearing out days of heavy air. My only regret is when our time is up and we fly back home. Another year until we see you again.
