Home For Sale In the Lakes In Newark--Isthmus Be My Lucky Day

Sounds like a pretty wet house or two for sale if you take the title literally. The truth is, some of these much sought after homes in Newark are situated in what is called, "The Lake Area," and they are built on the perimeter of the water where lush, green grass grows and where ducks, geese and even swans like to swim. What's more, the lake even has its own man-made island or rather more of an isthmus because of the bridge. See the note regarding isthmus and the map below so you can see what I mean.

Anyway, during Newark Days last week, the Lake Area Association decided to accompany the ducks and geese add brought back "Boating Days," a long time gone but well-loved pastime of bringing the "reasonably sized boat" to the water and out for a cruise.

I took the family out to Boating Days and took a picture or two. It was a nice break from working at the TriCity Real Estate Broker's office during the week.
An isthmus (IPA: [ˈɪsθməs, ˈɪstməs, ˈɪsməs], Greek: ἰσθμός, isthmos, Katharevousa and ancient Greek: ἰσθμός, plural isthmuses or isthmi) is a narrow strip of land that is bordered on two sides by water and connects two larger land masses. By Jeff Pereyda
