I’m sharing some blue sky and blue water views for those of you who need it (including us)!

These photos are from the middle of the week with a wet weekend in the forecast.

The stars & stripes swooper flags come down after Labor Day,

are are put away until Memorial Day next year.

Labor Day was a very wet one with 2 1/2 inches of rain,

much to everyone’s dismay who had outdoor plans and were hoping

for a day on the lake before putting their boat away for the summer.

We were dog gone happy to see the sun return briefly

with some boating time on Thursday. . .

It was a delightful 69 degrees,

perfect for a morning boat cruise.

Lola keeps look out to make sure we know where we going,

while Sophie is content to stretch out and nap.

Wispy, feathery cloud reflections in the early morning hours. . .

The water looks like glass without all the boating activity

and jet skis zipping about.

We spied this Osprey heading back to his nest with his ‘catch of the day’. . .

Osprey will begin migrating soon, heading for their winter grounds

in Central and South America.

They can log more than 160,000 migration miles during their 15-to-20-year lifetime.

    Nice! Looks like you had the lake to yourselves completely! Our midweek days were similarly nice, and heated up to high 80s Friday. I worked alongside a hired crew Friday to do some pretty major landscape work, so the predicted weekend rain will be welcome from my perspective!

    Beautiful views for a quiet Saturday morning on the Eastern shore in Lewes. I love seeing your dogs on the boat! We have a Portuguese Water Dog pup who loves being on the boat too!
    Forecast here for Saturday is sunny and humid. Sunday will bring us some much needed rain. This time of year is so quiet and you have the whole beach to yourself. Thanks for the pics! I always enjoy your posts!

    Wow, the water looks like glass! I love seeing Lola and Sophie enjoying the pretty weather. It’s cloudy here, and we’re expecting more rain. Our Labor Day weekend was almost a washout.

    What a wonderful view! It’s always a treat to see your gorgeous lake. Glad you could enjoy some blue skies and time on the water. It looks as smooth as glass.

      Just beautiful Mary! Our nights are really cooling off and I’m amazed how many leaves have already fallen. Does this mean we’re in for a hard winter? Praying not! Enjoying the warm days for sure, without the humidity. Girls are precious as always. ♥️🐾

    Beautiful views from Lake Norman. We have had rain and clouds, but a promise of some nighttime lows in the 50’s and low humidity this coming week. It will feel like fall!

  17. September 11, 2022 at 9:35 am

    Beautiful Mary, I love the photos with the water reflecting the clouds in the sky, so serene! We are cooling off a little and leaves are falling…

      Oh that was heavenly… First, thanks for your visit, good to hear from you again! Mlee and I did a retro novel bakers picnic week on Instagram, thought of you daily, I was told you aren’t on ig or would have been extra fun reunion!

      Ok, back to HEAVENLY WATER! We just came out of a week of California’s record breaking temps, coolest day for us was 108 up to 118, HOW COULD I NOT LOVE THIS! Yes, I want your labor day rainfall too! CA’s largest wildfire is 30 miles from us, the smoke is so thick we can’t see, not to mention breath, is this what blue skies look like? They said this fire will burn through mid Oct, please shower me daily with wet, cool, refreshing blue on blue!

    We had a nice steady rain on Saturday in Nashville. It was the perfect rain for gardens and lawns. I am sending it your way. I hope you have a great weekend. Love your Lake Norman waterview pictures.

    Beautiful views of a beautiful lake! And those clouds.
    I loved seeing the pups.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    Our neck of the woods required a change! We left NorCal at 116 degrees and are in humid Hawaii with a lovely ocean breeze. We’re ready for cooler fall temperatures!

    Lake Norman is so beautiful with the calm water reflecting the blue sky. What a great time to get out on the water!
