June strolls in and kicks back. Days are long and dock time is upon us. For some, early morning is best.

Calm waters. Birds doing their bird things. If you’re lucky, a loon will be laughing or a merganser will glide by with its fleet of little ones paddling like mad to keep up. Shore animals come down for a drink, washing away the night’s activity before scurrying off for their morning snooze. Maybe an otter will decide to look for clams and be surprised to find someone sitting on his dock.

Once accustomed to the quiet of a waterside morning, it’s amazing just how noisy it all is. Activity reigns.

To a lesser degree, evening dock time is us. The dock is ours. Fish might jump in the waning light for that last gasp of protein before night’s curtain envelops the shore and skies start to sparkle, one star at a time. Breaking the quiet might be an owl, but it’s more likely the crackle of the fire pit or laughter of youngsters enjoying marshmallows or s’mores.

The season is here. For many the next few months are when lifetime memories are made, becoming more meaningful with each passing year. Lifetime friendships formed around shared experiences, recognize the kid inside regardless of external age. Time stops. Although the years may fade and blur, memories grow and dock time is treasured.

Our spring flurry has morphed into summer. Some properties not selling have changed their ask and others, coming to market now, may be more attractively priced. This past week has seen some interesting waterfront become available. Check them out! Your dock may be among them…
