Japanese Food and Bountiful Lake

Today was a super fun day.  I’ve been working really hard, exercising every day this week, so I decided to take it easy and have a relaxing swim with my friends.  I’ve been wanting to try Bountiful Lake and so when I heard my friends were meeting up there it was a perfect solution.

My friend Tenille wanted to go to our favorite Japanese restaurant Nagoyi Sushi in Midvale.  It’s in a strip mall and you would never guess it was that good.  Somehow my sister and I stumbled upon a couple of years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since.  It is also very reasonably priced.

I had the udon noodle bowl this time but everything I’ve tried there has been delicious.  If anyone wants to give it a try let me know and I will go.

Then we went to the lake.  It was beautiful and not the sink hole I’d been warned about!  I wish I could transfer to others the excitement and rush I feel when I dive into the water.  It feels like heaven.  In Lynn Sherr’s book she describes it well:

“Swimming is my salvation. Ask me in the middle of winter, or at the end of a grueling day, or after a long stretch at the computer, where I’d most like to be, and the answer is always the same; in the water, gliding weightless, slicing a silent trail through whatever patch of blue I can find.  Tell me…to think of something pleasant and count backwards and I’m back in the drink, enveloped by an ocean, a lake, or a  turquoise box, carving long and languorous laps that lull me into serenity.”

Perfect description.

I agree with Dory from Finding Nemo:

“When life gets you down, do you wanna know what you’ve gotta do? Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.”

Today I decided to take things a little bit easier.  We had some new swimmers and so I relaxed and wore my more casual bathing suit. It was actually kind of nice to feel pretty in a bathing suit for once :).  My friend Tennille tried it out of the first time.  It wasn’t her favorite thing in the open water but I was proud of her for trying. She did very well.

There were 6 or 7 of us in the water and we just did a short swim but it was very pleasant.

Plus I got to try out my new waterproof camera.  I LOVE IT!

pretty suit for once!  Hopefully I’ll be tanned next time I wear it 🙂

So delicious food, good friends, swimming in beautiful nature, can’t get much better than that! I have such a great life!
