NY Summer, Rowing on the Lake

........Noon, hiving sweets of sun and flower,
Has fallen on dreams in wayside bower,
Where bees hold honeyed fellowship
With the ripe blossom of her lip;
All silent are her poppied vales
And all her long Arcadian dales,
Where idleness is gathered up
A magic draught in summer's cup.
Come, let us give ourselves to dreams
By lisping margins of her streams. .........
Summer...Lucy Maud Montgomery

Breathtaking view :) More beautiful than Venice.

I especially like the "castle" in the background that the two boats seems to be rowing towards.

And whether you get a chance to go rowing I hope your having a sweet summer, too.

the castle is actually a two towered apartment building, central park does have its own castle, belvedere castle which conducts weather measurements and some bird watching, but it's a small castle

It would be great if you could post a picture of Central Park's real castle.

Wow. I can't imagine living in an apartment building with such a beautiful view overlooking a lake.

This is the photo of the castle posted last fall on the blog.
Another will be coming up as winter time approaches.

TY TY Lemon.

It fascinating abd beautiful. A castle in the city surrounded by trees and a lake. There's something very alluring about the mere thought of a castle within the city.
