On Lakecation: Dockside Dining

I’m taking a little ‘lakecation’ this week. . . Taking some time off to unwind and unplug. . . Setting sail into a week with no projects or appointments . . . Slowing down to enjoy the scenery. . . With no plans other than drifting peacefully from reading to watching the water. Maybe swim…

Weekend Waterview: Sunset Cruise on Lake Norman

Happy Weekend! I often get comments and emails about the lake; What lake do you live on and how big is it? Lake Norman, was created between 1959 and 1964, as part of the construction of the Cowans Ford Dam by Duke Energy and is the largest man-made body of fresh water in North Carolina.…

Weekend Waterview: Full Pond and a Boat Ride After Alberto

Happy Sunday! We’re enjoying a break from the rain and some sunny skies! The pond is full after Subtropical Storm Alberto last week.

Weekend Waterview: A Snowy Blanket

Weekend Waterview: Up On the Roof and Bird’s Eye View

Weekend Waterview: Falling Back and Fall Color

Happy Sunday! Did you enjoy your extra hour of sleep this morning with the time change? I woke up at my usual time this morning but an hour earlier according to the clock. These two were demanding breakfast according to clock in their tummies. I always struggle with the time change for the first week…

Weekend Waterview

Happy Sunday! It’s been a rainy, hot & muggy weekend here with pop up storms. I pulled together some blue waterviews and photos taken over the last couple of weeks from our boating excursions. I’m always fascinated how the water changes with the light. How the light can make water can go from diamond sparkles.…
