The most wonderful time of the year

No, your browser has not screwed up and sent you into a post from December. Christmas is O.K., but it does not compare to the first really HOT WEEKEND AT THE LAKE.

It was the weekend  the deck  got a good scrubbing, and the cobwebs were washed off the umbrella. The boat got cleaned of its winter debris. The screens and windows got a bath.

So did Henry:

The deck chairs were pulled out of storage and the spiders were sent packing.

Then we had lunch al fresco on the gleaming table and chairs, talking about the summer ahead. Swimming, wakeboarding, the rope swing, B's famous margueritas and friends visiting.

As the sun headed west we sat on the dock with cold drinks, reading, dozing, and making plans for the many long hot weekends to come. Bliss.

P.S. The beach in the previous post is Carter's beach, Nova Scotia.

What a beautiful part of the world you live in. Great shots of the beginning of warm weather there.

Ah the joys of summer... sitting on the deck with a cold Guinness and a good book. Beautiful place you have there.

Wow - what a fabulous place you live in! I adore the first hot weekend.

Carver, British Columbia is beautiful, and our little bit of it at Pitt Lake is heaven.

Big Brother and Lady Fi, the beginng of summer with all its promise is wonderful.

Lovely to see you in the place that I know you value immensely. Only problem is, you sucked up all the warm weather and left it intolerably cold here on the coast.

Yay! I love summer, too.

Oh you're killing me. I feel silly wanting a holiday after two weeks abroad, but one thing England got me homesick for were the wonderful wild spaces of home, and I've been dying to get to a lake ever since! What a gorgeous spot you've got there. Glad you're enjoying it!

I wanted to share with you a AMAZING site I just came across teaching [url=][b]Krav Maga[/b][/url] Online If you guys have seen the Tv Show called Fight Quest you would have seen their chief instructor Ran Nakash there featured on their [url=][b]Krav Maga[/b][/url] episode. Anyways, let me know what you think. Is training via the internet something you would do?

all the best
