 They come out for Memorial Day and wave in the breeze until Labor Day.

The UV rays and wind takes their toll after 3 months

and it’s time for new banners the following year!

I took these photos over that last couple of weeks.

We had some beautiful spring weather with low humidity,

but when the calendar page turned to June,

meteorological summer arrived bringing us the hottest day

of the year with 90+ degree temperatures, just like clockwork!

We cooled back to the 80s for the weekend, which

 makes those wearing fur coats much happier! 🐾🐾

Lola and Sophie are ready for boat rides

with some pontoon-generated breezes!

Sophie says it’s also much easier to nap to the hum of the motor.

    A beautiful sunny day here in Greensboro with low humidity and temps in the 70s. Glad the hot humid days of last week are gone. Not quite ready for full blown summer. Your Lake Norman pictures are just beautiful and your fur babies are enjoying their day on the water. Enjoy the wonderful days of early June .

    • June 5, 2022 at 4:42 pm

      Thank you Kathy! Yes, I wish these temps would linger. Enjoy your weekend. ♥

    Mary, The girls are just so precious. I do imagine their thick fur coats are hot during the summer heat and humidity. They’re always so well groomed and are just adorable! Love the swooper flags and the pics of our USA flag reflection in the water. Lake Norman is beautiful. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Clara ❤️

    It’s a beautiful morning here in Michigan. Enjoying coffee with my hubby and planning my gardening chores for the day. Mary, I need you to come and help me decorate my she shed. Well, first I have to convince hubby that gas cans and trimmers do not belong in my she shed. Have a blessed weekend and thank you for sharing your sweet pups.

    • June 5, 2022 at 4:47 pm

      Hi Linda! Wish I were closer, what fun to decorate a shed. Hope you can talk your hubby into relocating the tools and trimmers. :) Happy Weekend ♥

    Thank you for sharing your summer views with us, Mary. Lola and Sophie always make me smile and I can only imagine how fabulous they feel napping in the pontoon on a hot day. 😊

    Cutest puppy dogs ever! Are the osprey’s back in the nest on top of that pole (or wherever the nest is)?

    • June 5, 2022 at 4:51 pm

      Lola and Sophie say thank you Mildred! 🐾🐾 Yes the osprey return around the end of February and rebuild their nests on shoal markers and platforms. I’ll try to share some photos soon. Happy Weekend. ♥

    Wonderful way to spend summer! We’ve had a similar forecast, and I must say, I am thoroughly enjoying the lower temps (especially in the mornings) this weekend. Love your flags and the boat on the dock (nice motorized storage out of the water!). Enjoy, Mary!

    • June 5, 2022 at 5:00 pm

      Us too Rita, I get so much more done on cooler mornings and not ready for 90+ degree temps. Happy Weekend ♥

    Mary, I always look forward to your Weekend Water Views. It makes me feel as I’ve been out on the lake. It’s fun to see the girls enjoy the outing. Not sure how Sadie would do on a boat. She doesn’t even like to ride in a car. Looks like a gorgeous days, but that sunset view is the best . Happy June!

    • June 5, 2022 at 4:53 pm

      Thank you Sarah! Doggie kisses to Sadie, Happy June! 🐾🐾

  18. June 5, 2022 at 7:28 am

    Beautiful water views, Mary. The girls are always adorable. I probably would be sitting lakeside all the time, it looks so peaceful!

    • June 5, 2022 at 4:54 pm

      Happy Weekend Pam! Look forward to seeing you tomorrow. ♥

  19. June 5, 2022 at 10:43 am

    Happy Boating Season Mary! The boats are out in full force in Orange Beach, an endless parade of boats floating by our pier with people relaxing and enjoying…Your precious fur balls look so sweet napping on the boat, love their red, white and blue blanket! I love the photo of the flag reflection in the water~you are all set for Flag Day and the 4th of July!

    • June 5, 2022 at 4:55 pm

      You have a front row seat for great people and boat watching Jenna! Hope you’re enjoying your time seaside. ♥

  20. June 5, 2022 at 4:26 pm

    Your lake view and sunset views look like fine art!! Breathtaking! Oh, my goodness, Lola and Sophie are just beautiful and so fluffy! My grandpups sure like boat rides too!

    Wonderful post!


    • June 5, 2022 at 4:56 pm

      Thank you Nancy! Isn’t if funny how they love boat rides? Happy Weekend to you. 🐾🐾

  21. June 6, 2022 at 8:40 am

    Oh so gorgeous and serene, and wet! Although we just had a rare June rainy day, drought rules the roost around here and all that water is mesmerizing! The girls are adorable, the heat must be so hard on their fluffy bodies, hope they take a dip now and then!

  22. June 6, 2022 at 10:57 am

    As always, fabulous photos and the puppies are so cute. We’ve moderated temps here in Chicagoland which is fine with me, instead of jumping from furnace on to instant air conditioning. Makes the yardwork pleasant. Hope you continue with some lovely weather! Sa
