Lake Lure in North Carolina is my happy place.

I want to buy a house here. I want to buy a summer home here. I don’t want to travel anymore.

I just want to spend my summers on this lake, in my lakeside home, with my SUP board.

This was my mantra for our very short two day stay in Lake Lure.

I just had to bring my parents here on our big road trip from Dallas to Boston. It was slightly out of the way, but totally worth it.

It’s one of the first things we do when we arrive at the Lodge on Lake Lure.

Kalyra pauses her paddling to do handstands and cartwheels. I watch in amazement and work up the bravery to slip off the board into the cool waters.

It’s cool and refreshing. The perfect complement to the humid air.

There’s no fear of sharks, jelly fish or crocodiles like back home in Australia. I can swim freely in the pools of serenity.
