Boucle and I headed to the Lake this morning.  It was the first time we were able to go to a particular beach since last September, as it opens May 24 weekend and closes Labour Day.

The mosquitoes were out in full force, swarms of them.  But the sky was beautiful, and Boucle loved walking on the beaches.

…this morning at the lake…..

He was throwing the small rocks with such enthusiasm.  His Mom, right with him.  A wonderful afternoon together……..

It was an very happy day, Saturday afternoon at the lake.
So many enjoying…. …from my series of happy moments on a sunny winter afternoon at the lake…….

Each goose perfectly followed the goose in front, steadily and persistently paddling across the lake………

And just above the far left goose…..a duck…..by himself……..where is his tribe?…his flock?…..lonely duck…….

A new day,
a new Year……
A path to follow……
A forest to see through……….
All to reach …
the beauty of a beautiful lake……….

May your New Year be all you hope it will be, even when your path meanders, and the forest becomes thicker than expected, may you reach your place of beauty in 2013.

To all my friends……..xoxo
Best Jane and Boucle

 

…one long beautiful wave…………

We were so fortunate on Sunday to have beautiful south winds.  It was very warm for a November day, though there were hazy clouds in the sky.  Winter is on our doorstep, and we will not have such a day again until at least March.

…hear the rush of the waves………

What a gorgeous afternoon it was for Boucle and me to be at the lake.  It was very windy, with wave after wave.

I love the big woosh and sound of the waves…….so loud it drowns out all other sounds….

…seize the moment………

I was busy in and out yesterday and felt sad for Boucle, as the temps were around 15C with warm winds, and he was inside.  So after my last out, and back in, I decided to seize the moment with sweetie-pie and head to the lake.  I love those spur of the moment moments, obligations permitting.

A whole bunch of parasailers had the same idea.  Those are sails sitting on the grass, and they are as big as tents.  The one in the air is guided by a man in a wet suit on the ground, practicing and enjoying the moment.  Every now and then being lifted into the sky and then back down again.

What a perfect afternoon.  And as sweetie-pie and I headed home, dark grey storm clouds were approaching from the west.  Perfect timing.

…sweetie-pie is now a happy dog……
