The Rebel is back....

Gary, Jen, Finn, Coop and I drove out to Lake Ontario today. It was very hot and this was the place to be. When we arrived at the Botts, not a soul was around....figured they went to get their boat. Finn was the first to see them approaching.
The water was as clear as a bell and not too cold.
They anchored off shore and we walked out with towels, life jackets, cameras etc.
The boys absolutely love going to the lake.
They each had a chance to drive the boat. Topper was so good with them.
Cooper drove most of the way to a nearby cove where we stopped for a swim.
It had to happen's Topper taking a picture of me taking a picture of him.
On the way back, Finn drove.
Spending time on the water takes me back to when I was a kid and lived on Chautauqua Lake.
There's nothing like it.

It was the day of the kayaks...
Carol just got a new one last night and I was the first to try it. So well balanced and easy to slice through the water.
She was next...Jenny and I followed in a two man kayak.
Then it was Jenny's turn. So peaceful.

We are very grateful to Carol and Topper for sharing all of this with us. A magnificent afternoon.


  1. This is a good example of why I love your blog. It's just all about the basics. Great!

  2. What a lovely day at the lake. Nothing like it!

    Are you using the new editor? It's a lot easier to get the pictures up, and, once I figured out that, if they landed in the wrong place, I could click on them and drag them to where I wanted them, I came to really like it.

  3. How nice to be able to share such fun times with good friends. Looks just beautiful.
