Last weekend, while my hometown and surrounding area was buried under 30 – 40 inches of snow, DH and I were kayaking in shorts and tank tops. We went to a distant lake in the ‘mountains’ and we were able to find some signs of fall.
At the beginning of our paddle, we shared the lake with only two other kayaks. It was so incredibly peaceful and quiet.
Later, a group of young men came out in a couple of canoes. I think they were on a group trip from the city, and had never been in canoes before. The seemed to be having a very good time, but were extremely noisy, so we just turned and went to the other end of the lake. It was big enough for all of us.
During the past week, we’ve had over 6 inches of rain. Here is the sky the night before it started.
After all the rain on Thursday and Friday, we decided to take a chance on a road trip for Saturday. The day started out cloudy and drizzly,
We had to take a short hike to reach our real destination for the day. We had seen a picture of this site in an advertisement for West Virginia, and made it our mission to find it!
After leaving this park, we went to another area, but we ran into heavy fog, and had to call it quits. Here we are just driving into the fog. Before long, we couldn’t see anything!
Every parking lot near the hiking trail heads was full!
Driving back down the mountain, we saw a few more pretty scenes, and then we started for home.
Sunday was sewing day! I finished the secret project. what do you think?
Must go now…Be kinder than necessary…..Sunny
