The Tekle family on Lake Anne in Reston wave goodbye to summer.

Water lovers made their way to docks at Lake Anne Plaza in Reston for one more summer Sunday, paddling and pedaling on the tree-lined reservoir. The Tekle family, Tadd, Kalkidan, and daughter Eliana, 6, and Jonathan, 5, cruised in the comfort of a four-person pedal boat. They merrily floated here and there, dropped their hands in the water, then explored a bit more on the quiet lake. No motors or speed demons here. They waved to passersby looking very content with enough space for four to stretch out and lounge.
Asked why this, why today, Tadd called out, “For the enjoyment. And before school starts.”
