My favorite childhood memory is from one summer at the lake. My family was staying at our cottage and one day, my father, who liked to wander in the woods, came back so exited. Everyone else was too busy doing their own thing, but me, as in character, was simply splashing my feet in the lake - sitting on the dock. I followed my dad, and he brought me to a place that was formerly swamp. Large trees, but no underbrush or plants--- simply a padded carpet of moss under the tree canopy. It was so beautiful, I can still see it to this day. I tried to find the moss room years after as an adult, but it wasn't there. It must have been a result of the climate conditions for that year, I'll never forget it though- it still exists vividly in my memories.
