Afternoon at the Lake

 We have a small group from our church that tries to get together every month or so. One of the couples has a cottage on a lake a little over an hour north of us.
Our group went up there last Sunday after church.  It was supposed to rain, but the clouds cleared and it was a beautiful day!


Here's the view of the lake from their cottage.




The cottage.  We sat out on their deck and had lunch and did a lot of talking.



The guys kept talking but the girls decided to take a walk.



How do you like this "cottage" that was around the bend?




Another view of the lake.




A picture of our group.  These are some great friends!




They had to take a boat ride.  I let the rest of them go, I would rather stay on dry ground!



Pretty hydrangeas growing near the lake.




It's always so calming to be near the water.





Shortly before we left, this bald eagle was circling overhead.  Such majestic birds!

We had a great time together and enjoyed the beauty God placed around us.

That view is amazing and I think that if I had a cottage in the lake, I would NEVER leave! :P
I also love the water and my dream house would be near the beach or the lake!

Beautiful lake! When we were in Charlevoix this summer I was sitting on the deck in the morning drinking my coffee and an eagle soared over the lake right in front of me! Majestic is definitely the right word!

Wow, that 'cottage' reminds me of the houses around Green Lake, in my area, where all the rich folks have summer homes. Rumor years ago was that even Oprah had a house out there.

I agree, I'll stay on dry land. I can't swim, so I am NOT going on a boat, no matter how big. Nope, nope, nope.

Wow do they have a beautiful spot!! And it's so wonderful to have friendships, support and bonds to share like this. God is sooo good....and it's so wonderful when we get to share Him with others too. 🙏 💕

What a lovely spot. The view of the lake is so beautiful, and it looks like they even have a sandy beach.
