Roy Parker lives on the Lexington side of Lake Murray.
I love the views, and I love the quietness. I love the tranquility and observing the aquatic life — birds and shorebirds and ducks and geese. I just got back from a fishing trip down in Florida, and I couldn’t wait to be home. And to be frank, I probably would have caught more fish on Lake Murray.
I’ve probably got about 60 or 70 bushes, both climbing roses and bush roses. I’ve got a lot of different colors. Probably my favorite red rose is Kardinal. And another favorite rose is Double Delight, which has a wonderful fragrance. It’s a white and pink combination, kind of a swirl combination.
I have a boat. My grandchildren are coming here in June, so we’ll be water-skiing. We’ll be boating. On Bundrick Island, there are nice beaches. We’ll probably boat over to the beaches and have a picnic perhaps and let the grandkids swim.
