Moises: Matoaka Amphitheatre Dock

Before I even came to William & Mary, when I was still a senior in high school, I would see people posting pictures of this place. My whole freshman year I always wondered where the dock was, but could never quite find it. Finally, about a month ago, I came to this place with some friends who had built a raft and were launching from here. I remember getting to the dock and it was an “ah hah” moment. I’d finally found this place! We were in the middle of the lake and it felt great being able to see the stars and the moon as we drifted on the raft. I was there next to my girlfriend, and she said “We’ve got to come back here!” 
Last week was her birthday. I wanted to make sure it was a very special day for her, so I brought her here. I’ll never forget the look of joy on her face! There’s a lot of great memories here. When you lay down on the dock, it’s cool because it looks as if you’re in the water. It’s so peaceful, especially right now because all the leaves are changing colors. When you listen to the silence…you can hear the sounds of nature. I love to feel the warmth of the sun here, I just feel at peace.
