Wanted to post a fun off-topic thread...

What are your favorite places near where you live where you tend to spend a lot of your free time? It can be anything: a beach, a restaurant, a desert, a local landmark, a mountain trail where you ride your bike, old town, your own backyard, etc. Just curious how and where Fastlaners spend their free time.

I'll start with two places:

1. A lake where I swim a few times a week in the summer.

Surrounded by the forest, it's the cleanest lake in the region. Thankfully it's not as popular as other lakes so when I head there in the morning, I'm often completely by myself. It's one of my favorite feelings in the world to be swimming in the middle of the lake in silence, with nothing but a quiet splash of water. The only drawback is that it's a 45-minute drive away from where I live so a quick 1-hour swimming session actually takes me 2.5-3 hours. I'm blessed to enjoy time freedom thanks to my Fastlane business so that's not that big of a problem, though.

2. A nearby forest.

2.jpg

I'm usually there a few times a week year round. It's only a 10-minute drive away from where I live so that's super convenient. I know the place so well it feels like my second home, having walked the trails hundreds, if not thousands of times. It's not really a huge or a remote forest but I'm still grateful for it as usually there's nobody there.

Looking forward to your pictures and captions!

We’re less than a mile from a national park with lots of hiking that the kids can manage.

When we need a break from the heat we drive up north a few hours to either Flagstaff or Sedona (picture above)

We also love Coronado as a town and for the beach but since @Kak will kill me in my sleep if I move to CA, a vacation home is more likely than being residents.

Ha, your kid looks like the king of the desert.

I live on this lake so we like to just chill at home. 80 degrees all summer here in Washington.

That's a super clean lake! How large is it?

300 acres so plenty big enough. A guy a few houses down has a seaplane and takes off right out in front of us, it's awesome.

It's like 15 feet deep so deep enough to jump in from the bridge and boat around in, but shallow enough to be the perfect swimming temp in the afternoons.

There's a boat launch but there's no parking, which means there's nobody out on the water except for the people that live here. Never crowded unlike lake tapps.

Which is why rent is 3200 + utilities lol

I never miss an opportunity to talk about leisure time. Which has become a much bigger part of my life.

Thanks for sharing the pictures!

As a side note, I've found that after a while (assuming your business does well) you really don't want to talk about business so much and instead want to talk about other stuff. At least that's how it is for me.

Wow that's crazy!

Agree. This is also a reason that I have friends based on interests. Not just wealthy friends.

I love to take a time out in Greece.
Taking only my family members with me and spending time there with long year friends I only know from hanging around in Greece.
Maybe maximal swimming googles, running shoes and an Ipad.
I allways go there by ferry boat, because I want to have my own car and I still love driving(fast) after some million kilometers.

I love to take a time out in Greece.

Greece is a super nice country for chilling out. Very warm people and beautiful scenery.

Here's the 'old town' nearby — You could walk these streets for days.

I've always loved how the colorful buildings are accentuated by the strong Caribbean sun :)

Love the panoramic view, @Antifragile. I don't live in a place where you can see for miles so I often miss places like this one.

Park about 200m from my house. This photo was maybe 2km away after some trails. I try to get out every morning in the summer.

I took this photo in April about half a mile from my apartment.

And I suck at taking photos, lol.

Other than that, I love the scenery at Seychelles and Mauritius.

That's one solid photo! I like that it's balanced agriculture and not just fields all over the horizon with no woods or anything else.

I love walking the kids to school. We live in a town but there’s some nice paths by ponds and a hill they love running up and down…
