A table for Two

Forty years ago today, we set out on a journey together as husband and wife. A few years later , the ‘table for two’ became 3 then 4 then 5. A decade and a half later (ish) two flew the coupe then a few years later our baby left the roost.

Over the following years additions to the families of our precious offspring eventually increased the number of ‘arrows in our quiver’ to 13! We look forward to a gathering of this precious group very soon but today on the day of our 40th wedding anniversary, it’s a lakeside table for two (even dusted off the wedding china!)

Side note: We planned to eat our yummy dinner of blue cheese encrusted tenderloin and strawberry pecan salad in the porch then decided the outdoor photo would be more impressive. The temperature went from 25 C to 30 something in the short time we prepped dinner! We ended up wimping out and retreated to enjoy the view from the cool air conditioning inside our little house on the lake.

Loving life together!

Sunrise, Sunset

May every sunrise hold more promise and every sunset hold more peace.

Happy dance

It’s summer!!

Our daughter’s Vizsla loves to try and catch droplets of water kicked up by the kids. I took dozens of burst images to capture some of his crazy contortions. This was my favourite.

Launch at dawn

Any day you get to head out on the water is a good day! Hope August brings such days for you. Enjoy!

Fuzzy Goslings

It’s not that we dislike the geese on our lawn, it’s because of what they leave behind that motivates us to find ways to keep them away. However, moms and dads with wee ones are just too cute to ban or separate. (No political comment intended.)

Sibling rivalry.
Snack time.

The back light of late day sun gave the goslings a a sweet glow.

Vacation’s around the corner


Hope you have some fantastic summer vacation plans!

Be water smart this summer. Wear your life jacket when boating!

Leaping Lab

We had some friends join us for an afternoon at the beach. Their Lab, Rocky provided great entertainment as he gleefully enjoyed the cold water.

I love how his tail curls in the same direction as his wake and the splash under his chin completes a half heart shape of white.

Boy, can this boy jump!
