Beach Time at American Lake | Summer Fun Time

Yesterday was another beautiful day here in our state. The weather was sunny, maybe around the 70's, so we decided to head out to the beach side at American Lake. This lake is inside Joint Base Lewis McChord in North Forth. It is not as crowded because you can only enter if you are a member of the armed forces; veterans, reserved, and active duty family or dependents; or anybody who has military ID to enter the base. 

We went to the Shoreline Beach Park in the afternoon when the sun is not as scorching anymore. The kids love to play in the water so I made sure I was at arm's length when they're in. Good thing there are life guards around the beach area as well as those that are doing the rounds, boating on the lake. 

There's a buoy or marker/line also indicating where you can wade in the water and area where it is allowed to swim and dive as well as for fishing. There are pedal boats, kayaks and skis that you can rent out too for those who want to have more fun at the lake. We are planning, along with some friends, to have camping by the lake next month when weather permits, so we'll see if that one will be pushed through. I told the kids about it and they are more excited of the plan.

The best place to cool down when the weather is hot. It's nice to swim in a calm ocean, i wish we have that kind nearby.

It would be wonderful to go camping beside the lake! I do hope the weather cooperates so you can enjoy your campout.

It's good that there's such kind of privilege given to the family of a military. Your kids had so much fun on the beach.

I bet you all had fun. We went to Orange Beach, AL twice last year and the kids got sick of the sand. They said, no more beach for them :)
