one of the best weekends on the lake, it is so much fun. So much to do and usually so warm.

Colorful Fireworks over Lake

What is better than fireworks on the lake?

 coolers, lol, well they are good too. We tried these last weekend, I think there are still some left. They were ok, but I have a question for the popper people… what flavour is Ice? I mean hard ice and wild ice? If they weren’t pretty colours we would not have tried them, I mean… eeps, Ice? is that the best you can do?

come onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn…..


so we will start off Friday night. 🙂 yay

time for a quick bit of fun before the sun sets

a campfire by the shore, tis so nice. The crackle and pop.. the singing and guitar playing…


 this is the only way to toast marshmallows, you know.. so you have one for a friend. (pssst golden brown.. not black or flaming….)

then sneaking out for a quiet canoe ride in the moonlight….

when it is so quiet.. the gentle sound of the paddles dipping lightly in the water… then the sound of splashes when the other canoe is in sight and the screams that follow… lol     what?  not me… *nods innocently*

The mornings.. when a fog is on the lake.. mist gently rising

the sound of a loon calling close by, ducking under the water…

maybe while the lake is calm, before all the fun starts and the boats make waves… a quiet ride

Paddle Boat on Lake (Small)

with someone special

Then the real fun can start, and still relaxing… but not with coolers.


and it is going to be hot… so cooling off will be on the top of the list


and this too….. woo hoo… I am getting excited. 

Eyak lake Float Plane

maybe a quiet boat ride to finish off the day… before the next campfire.


or one last paddle


or just sitting in a hammock and feeling the breeze blow off the lake, watching people zip by…. with friends


thinking too, of friends. Thinking a lot. But smiling too.


Have a great weekend everyone
