“Spring continues to tease us in between days of cold and rain. We took a long walk along the lake front, taking time to play in the very spot on the beach where we will be swimming come July,” writes Idaho Dad/A Family Runs Through It. “In fact, the rocks in the foreground will be completely submerged in a few months.

Kage Mann: When I was a young, I used to go to the North Shore and play video games at their arcade. I also, used to drink and dance there and the older women used to come by and ask us youngsters to dance. I think Chris Drysback used to play there; he was a one man band.
