…early yesterday morning at the Lake…………..

Boucle and I headed out to the lake early yesterday morning.  It was calm and peaceful.

There is a small flock of geese flying and honking, on the left  And in the water, the black dots in the foreground are  seagulls.

On the horizon line, the black dots are boats and sail boats.  Many of them.  I have never seen so many that early in the morning lined up like that.  It was one long line of boats.  Upon my return to the house, the news said that the young  14 swimmer Annaleise Carr was still swimming across Lake Ontario.  Perhaps those boats were there cheering her on.

She did finish her swim last night around 9PM, from Niagara on the Lake to Toronto in 27 hours.  Quite a feat, and only 14 years young.

…spectacular japanese maple putting on a show………..

On one of the side streets near the waterfront park, I saw this magnificent Japanese Maple, and had to take a picture…….

I went out yesterday morning with my new 35mm lens.  So all my shots are with it.  I love going out with one lens and seeing what I can do with it.  Boucle enjoyed himself immensely this morning too.  One happy pair:))……

…a gorgeous day…….waterfront pier……..

This morning Boucle and I headed out west along Lake Ontario and stopped at a very pretty park.  This is their pier.  In the little sailboats are young children, all learning to sail…….

It was such a lovely morning that there were a lot of people out and about……

….finally some real rain today……….

The summer has been pretty dry and hot.  Today it is raining all day, with a lot of thunderstorms mixed in.  These garden shoes are perfect in the wet grass………

…tower of shoes…….!

The shoes on top are leather bronze colored, with ruffled leather petal centers and in the center of each petal is a crystal….all sparkle and pretty.  Love looking down at my feet in these shoes and seeing the sparkle:)

….forgotten……….

…/

Boucle and I arrive quite early at the beach and on Monday, we were there before the clean up crews arrived.  These two sets of shoes, one set from a little boy and one from a little princess girl, were left on the beach, forgotten, quite close to each other.
I imagine that the parents had been there all day, and it was finally time to go, and the little ones did not want to, oh what fun they had playing in the water until the last minute, when the parents said “let’s go!” and off they went, and completely forget about their shoes.

….shoes…..and more shoes……..

There is something about shoes that we all love.  They come in all kind of colors and shapes, with all kinds of bling.  You can go simple and elegant and fun and crazy.

…Boucle loves finding a way into the shot……..sparkles this morning at the lake….

Yesterday, it was very mosquitoey humid…..today…all the humidity is gone and it is a gorgeous summer day.  So Boucle and I went down to the lake for some beach therapy to start our day.  Of course, sweetie-pie found a way to get into the shot.  I do have the same shot without him, but I just liked sweetie-pie in it, even if he isn’t all in it:)

It is a holiday here today, a beautiful summer day.  Hope you are having a great day too:)!
