last saturday

Last Saturday was a hazy, lazy morning.  The plants at this time of the year are not looking their best.  These are the neighbors volunteer sunflowers. It also doesn't help that we haven't had significant rain for over a month.

They always do so well with their garden.  They keep it very neat.

Some larger sunflowers.

I also heard laughing and giggling and had to see what was going on.
They had many tennis balls and were having the best time.

Looks like follow the leader.
Frozen in the air action.

A little static electricity in the hair.
I enjoyed hearing their laughter.

At the lake

We were visiting some friends who have a lake cottage in northern Indiana.  It was a perfect day to go to the lake.  The sun was shining and there was a nice breeze.  In a little channel behind their cottage a Heron was looking for some lunch. 

Tom in the swing overlooking the lake. 

A good close up of the Heron.  I love to watch these birds.


Kevin and Bob doing some fishing.

Tom-backwards hat so it won't blow off on a pontoon ride.


Seagulls taking off as we buzz down the lake.

Swans-the brown ones are the babies.

Another Heron that caught dinner. 

The fishes tail was flapping.

I love the sparkling water and the sailboat.

Here is their cottage.  They have an unobstructed view of the lake.  Thanks Bob and Nan for such a good time!
