by Sherrie Toth

One of the perks of living on or near Apple Valley Lake is the gorgeous view and scenery whether it’s mid summer or the dead of winter. There are countless opportunities to catch glimpses of nature or simply the beauty of the lake. It’s even better when you can capture these moments on film to be remembered forever.

Perhaps you’re considering purchasing a Lake Home.  Let these pictures serve as a reminder WHY Apple Valley is YOUR next Happy Place.

The scenery is breathtaking.  It has the same effect as chamomile: calming.

Beautiful Bennett Park

These little fellas can be seen all over Apple Valley Lake.  Bald eagles are the only eagle native to North America.  And the word “Bald” originally meant “white” not “hairless.”

Pictured here is a Red-Bellied Woodpecker.  With a little suet and some peanuts, you can attract this beautiful bird.  If you’re lucky, you might be able to get the more recognized Pileated Woodpecker.

A tiny, little hummingbird.  While these creatures are in fact birds, their aerodynamics often have them associated with insects.  Hummingbirds can flap their wings up to 6,000 times per minute.  Be sure to change their water often, as the old nectar can be toxic to these delicate animals.

Safety First at Apple Valley Lake

by Sherrie Toth



 

safety first.jpg

Well, we think it’s safe to say that the warmer weather is well under way.  What a nice Memorial Day weekend we had here in Apple Valley.  Minus a few scattered showers here and there, Toth and Team can say with confidence that we couldn’t have asked for better weather.

As always, when the weather finally starts to cooperate with us (Thanks, Ohio!!), there are more people who are out on the lake and around to enjoy it, which makes the risk for accidents rise.  Apple Valley has put out a list of boating and water safety rules to regulate and prevent accidents that you might want to check out.  Toth and Team has also created a list of simple “things to remember” when enjoying the beautiful Apple Valley Lake.  And as always, accidents are just that-- ACCIDENTS.  No one intends for them to happen, but a lot of them can be avoided if we are aware of ourselves and our surroundings.


Things to Remember: Swimming

 

Learn How to Swim- one of the best ways to prepare yourself and your family is to take swimming lessons.  Most facilities offer lessons for people as young as six months old.

 

Appropriate Supervision- Most times, there are different ability levels in the group of people you may be with-- especially if children are involved (under which circumstance there should ALWAYS be supervision).  Make sure you know these abilities and can verify that the appropriate supervision is available. Always have weak swimmers wear a US Coast Guard approved life vests. Do not rely on water wings or floaties.

Know Water Depths- Unless you are 100% certain, always enter the water feet first-- especially if it’s unknown waters.  Appropriate diving depth is 9 feet.


Substances- It may seem like a no-brainer, but common sense isn’t always common.  Make sure you aren’t under the influence of alcohol or drugs while swimming.

 

Take a Course- A water safety/ CPR course never hurt anyone and you never know when you might need it!  You might not be anywhere near the water-- you could be out at a local restaurant and find someone in need of your life-saving skill!

 

Common Sense- I know we said it wasn’t so common, but if you have to second guess, then you probably shouldn’t do it. Always go with your first gut instinct.

 

Things to Remember: Boating

 

Have a Checklist- always have a handy dandy checklist on board and before you depart, make sure you’re able to check them off your list.

 

Life Jackets- Make sure that each passenger on board has a life vest available.

 

Follow the Rules- Sometimes we want to unleash our inner rebel and that’s just part of life, but let's not do that with water safety.  It’s ok to call a handful of Cheez-its a “serving” in order to “stick it to the man” if that’s how you want to channel your inner rebel; however, boat and water safety rules were created to keep everyone safe.  If you’re unsure of such rules, you can check the Apple Valley Property Owners’ Association Website for more details.

Substances- Drinking and driving is not limited to the roadways; be smart.

Common sense- Again.  Rules are not here to make us have less fun.  Just remember to follow your gut and we can all enjoy the lake together with minimal to no problems!


Do you have any other precautions that you and your family take while on the water?  Let us know in the comments below!

Lakefront Living!

by Sherrie Toth

 

The ambiance of living in a lakefront home is like none other.  You're not restricted to the confines of a white picket fence; rather, you're met with the beauty and openness of the water.

 

Waking up to the sparkling Apple Valley lake, the beautiful morning chorus of the birds, the smell of fresh-cut grass is something that must be experienced first hand.

 

Have you ever vacationed at a spot such as the Outer Banks or another oceanfront place?  How relaxing is it?  How beautiful is it?  Living on Apple Valley Lake, you don't have to pack up your things and go home, because it IS home.
