Pretty Little Lake

This is a pretty little lake on the edge of the sand dunes where we like to take Wally and LuLu.  Our favorite time to visit is fall and winter when we have the place to ourselves.  There’s a trail all the way around the lake, plus a trail to an upper lake which we frequently visit, as well.  These pictures were taken in January of this year.


Winter can produce a bleak landscape, or it can reveal hidden beauty.  I love this froth of bare snow-white tree branches with the russets and greens and the spruce-aqua color of the water:


Guess who else likes this pretty little lake. . .


I might have shared this photo before:

We’ve had a lot of good times there – great exercise, good outdoor air, and happy Golden Retrievers.  Thanks for dropping in to share it with us!

Whatever Happened to Wally and LuLu?

Hello!  In case you were wondering whatever happened to Wally and LuLu, I’m here to tell you they’re as happy, healthy, and adorable as ever.  I should have checked in a little sooner, but “overwhelmed” is my middle name these days and I’ve got no one to blame but myself.  I let the photos go unmanaged too long and ended up with more than a year’s worth that needed to be poured over and uploaded to online storage.  With that much accomplished I now have one year of photos on my computer which I’ll sort through for the yearly photo book and calendar.  That’s going to keep me busy in my spare time if I hope to have it done before the end of the year.  Can you believe how close we are to 2015?  Yikes!

I thought I would simply share a few photos as I go along through the sorting process.  Today I have some from November 2013 that I rather like but never got around to sharing.  Perhaps we’ll just work our way up to the present day.  These pictures look a lot like snow, but it was actually a late fall day in the sand dunes.  Here’s Wally absolutely joyous over a ball he found out there:

A couple more pictures of pretty LuLu.



That’s it for today!  I hope to be back again soon with more.  Enjoy your day!
