My friend Judy has a cottage in the Adirondacks on a beautiful lake.
She’s a teacher and at the end of each school year she heads up there to rest and regenerate. She graciously invites her friends to join her and it has become an annual girls weekend that kicks off the summer.
The school year was long this year because the winter was loooooooong. Lots of snow days so they didn’t get out until June 26th!
We wasted no time, and drove up that evening. There were 6 of us and we had a simply wonderful time. I will probably write more about it but I want to tell you about one of the most special times of the trip for me.
Everyone else had headed back home a day before me so Judy and I spent my last day just the two of us. She has the cutest little pontoon boat we went and picked up from winter storage and she treated me to a fantastic sunset cruise. It gave me an opportunity to practice with my new camera and I am thrilled with the results.
I wish I had thought to take a picture of the boat but I didn’t, take my word though it is really cute! Small but can seat 4 people and its battery powered so its quiet and so relaxing!
We set out just as the sun was starting to think about setting.
Judy’s little dog Maggie gets the seat of honor on her mom’s lap.
She was just adorable with the wind in her ears!
I took a lot of pictures that were all pretty spectacular. This new little camera is a gem! Here’s a few I really love.
I think this one is my favorite.
We hated to head back to shore but as the light faded we motored back.
It was just a wonderful way to end the trip and such a wonderful memory. I am still going through the pictures so I am sure there will more I want to share with you all.
Hope you enjoyed these.
Wow – those are really gorgeous! There is nothing more fun than a new camera 🙂
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing and thanks for the story. I’m glad you can have such special friends!
