Day at the Lake

We are part of a small group at our church which includes 4 couples and one woman whose husband passed away a few years ago.  We try to get together monthly and take turns going to each others homes.
One of the couples owns a cottage on a lake about an hour from our area. They invited us all to drive up Sunday after church and spend the afternoon with them.  At the last minute, one couple couldn't make it, but the rest of us were able to go.

It was a beautiful day, and this was the scene that greeted us when we drove up.




This heron was hanging out on the dock for some time.  




Part of our group, after enjoying lunch.




After we ate, the women took a walk, while the guys hung back and talked.  One of the cottages has several of these concrete arches on the path to the lake.  This one says - 'Success is a journey, not a destination'.



Here's a beautiful place we walked past.











It was a wonderful afternoon, beautiful place, perfect weather and good friends!

What a nice get-away! The lake is beautiful!! My small group is struggling through covid. It isn't what it used to be and makes me sad that we have fallen apart. I might suggest once a month and see how that goes over! Have a happy week, Mari!

A perfect get-together!! Those arches have a lonesome, medieval atmosphere ( good atmosphere).
