Happy Weekend!

Here’s a little weekend waterview from Lake Norman. . .

We’ve had a couple of weeks of beautiful fall weather with daytime temps in the 70s

and mornings in the 50s and dipping down to the 40s.

I love seeing the steam fog rise from the lake in the mornings

when the warmer water temperatures meet the air,

lending the lake a mysterious quality.

This past week we’ve been 10 degrees warmer than average

with daytime temperatures climbing into the 80s again.

We’ve enjoyed a little boating over the past couple of weeks. . .

Lola keeps a look out to make sure we know where we’re going

when she’s not supervising from the Captain’s lap.

Sophie says the warm sunshine and motor

of the pontoon is the perfect recipe for a nap!

We’ve noticed more flags flying on boats in the past couple of months.

Our leaves are starting to turn with pockets of color visible on the shoreline. . .

And our Autumn Blaze Maple is the first to turn.

And we’ve enjoyed some brilliant sunsets recently. . .

Rain is moving in later today and tomorrow but we hope

to enjoy a little sunshine this morning.

      Dear Mary,
      Our lovely sunny ☀️ fall days 🍁🍂here in Maryland have evolved into a rainy ☔️ Sunday. Your gorgeous photos and message of gratitude are perfect for Sunday reflection. Sending prayers 🙏🏻 to those out west who are dealing with drought and fire!

    You know how much I love your watery view, it always makes me pang for the sea. Your water weekend posts literally wash over me leaving me calm and refreshed. Still no rain here, someone told me none in sight for the month of November, we lose our power Sunday through Tuesday because of severe fire weather and critical winds, NOW can you see how comforting your lake photos are…

    • October 24, 2020 at 10:45 am

      Oh I’m so sorry you’re still in fire danger and shutting power off. I keep hoping and praying you’ll have some rain relief. Hope the winds and fire stay far, far away! ♥

    Beautiful ride!! Kind of got worried when I didn’t see Lola right away…weather was great here in INDY too!! Fall has arrived!!

    Beautiful pictures. So glad you finally have weather you can get out in and enjoy (not too hot and not too cool). Love seeing your pups.

    we woke up to 8 inches of snow here in Montana and a forecast of 5 below zero for the next two nights, so your pictures were such a joy!!! Our snow came straight down so we have marshmallow tops on everything which is its own kind of beauty–even though it is a month early for us!!!!

    Mary, I simply adore watching your girls grow! The boat shots are perfect! My two love the boat also. Just back from our place on the lake…it had been warmer than usual but in the 50’s today. Happy Fall!

      Happy Fall Jeanne! Hope you and your furbabies are doing well! ♥ 🐾🐾
