About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

L is for LAKE

Today, L is for lake, Green Lake, to be precise. At the beginning of June, we went up to this lake with a group of Lorne's friends. We all stayed at a fishing resort, some of us in cabins and others in their own RVs. The guys went out fishing while the gals visited, drank coffee, and took photos for posterity.

Here are 3 of the guys out fishing.

A gorgeous shot of the surroundings reflected in the lake.


It was quite marshy at this place ...

and as such, there were lots and lots of ducks around.

This was the scene from the balcony of our cabin.

and this was the wharf that greeted us each morning.

Some of you might remember it was here that Lorne and I got officially engaged on June 5, 2009.

ABC Wednesday is brought to you by Mrs. Nesbitt and it's amazing that we're on Year 3, Round 5 already! Click here to see other participants' postings and/or to join in.

Beautiful views of the lake and what a lovely place to get engaged! I'm not into fishing, either, but sitting around with good friends and views like this sounds like a great time to me.
