Greetings from Deep Creek Lake, MD-Summer Is Here-June Events. Woohoo, summer is here!  The weather has been gorgeous with just enough breeze to keep us cool and remind us we’re in the comfort of the mountains.  Griffin has been enjoying his time outside, running free with no shoes and little clothing!  Ah, to be a kid again.  So refreshing to live through the eyes of an 18-month old.
