Wishing you a little time to slow down and unwind this summer. #wmInSummer⁣ —⁣ —⁣ —⁣ [Image Description: A video shows a view of Lake Matoaka. A large body of water dominates the view and is bordered by the thick, green foliage of trees in the distance. Above the trees is a dreamy summer sky: bright blue interrupted by long, wispy trails of clouds. The water forms a mirror of the trees and sky, but it's undulating continuously giving the mirror image a slight rippled effect. A couple of seconds into the video, the video slows down, which causes the water to appear calm and still.]
