This is a three day weekend for most of us in the US, and Mr. QD and I talked about taking a short trip somewhere, but decided against it. Quite often it’s a dreary rainy weekend, and we didn’t want to make reservations somewhere and then get rained out. Naturally, now that the weekend is here, the weather is beautiful and sunny and warm.
A perfect day for kayaking, in fact! The turtles were sunning themselves
The Great Blue Herons were fishing
And what is this guy doing here? An Osprey? I think he’s lost.
The water was cool and refreshing. hehe – don’t ask me how I know that! We only saw one goose family, with 5 peeps, but the cameras were still safely packed away at that point.
Dinner may have involved some seafood, as tomorrow is DH’s birthday, so we decided a treat was in order.
Before we drove down to the lake, I made a quick detour to the site of the flooding last week. Remember this picture?
The water level is still high today, but here is what it really should look like!
I’ll close with a couple of gratuitous flower pictures. We have planted several Clematis over the years, and never had any luck with them. One of them has decided to grow and bloom this year!
