Finally Photo's....

Hi my friends!
Yes... Finally I have some photos to share!!

This is the view from our house on Lake Conesus.

When we first arrived my grandson wrote out on 
the Chalk board a greeting.

Welcome Mimi & Grandaddy

Shortly after our arrival we feasted on surf and turf!
Yummy!! Our lobsters were priced down to 3.99$ a lb.
We finished watching the sunset by the fire making "some-mores"

After a good nights sleep 
The first activity on our list was Kayaking

So gear up everyone!

Yes ...everyone!!

And off we go!

Note it was a tight fit for "Daddy and Son"

  A Family Affair

That's all for today
Make it a great one!!!

:O) Hugs,

Finger Lakes

For several years we have had wonderful vacations at the Finger Lakes.
This year we are at the smallest of the lakes.....Lake Conesus.

Until the 18th century, The beauty of Conesus Lake was disturbed only by
the canoes of Indians who lived near the lake or came to set their nets.

I came across a poem by A. Krause ( 1924)
"To awaken in the morning when the sun comes up an shines
And breezes gently rustle thought the maples and the pines
To gaze upon Conesus and to watch the waves at play
Is there anything more wonderous than the glorious break of day?"

Well this morning I woke up around 5:30 and went out on the dock.
It was beautiful. The lake was very still and the fog seemed to skim along the surface
of the water. A beautiful Herron flew overhead and two Kingfishers flew by
together while chirping to one another quite loudly.
What a lovely start to my Saturday morning.

A Day At The Lake

Greetings my friends!
What a beautiful day we have here!
It was supposed to be a rainy day but we
Made it through to sunset without a drop or even a threatening cloud.

I am writing this on my iPad. I am still fairly a novice and am
Having problems getting my photos from the iPad onto my blog.
Any advice out there?

We had a fun filled day. Some of the family went kayaking ( yes and some like
Myself took naps)

We ended the day by the campfire making Somemores and watching the sun go down.
Talk about the perfect day.  Did I mention I am here with 2 of my grandsons so what could be better than that!!

Oh "Blueberrying" we shall go...

Hi all :O)
It is another glorious day here in New England!

I love the fact that my next door neighbors have a blueberry farm...
They have pick your own from 8-1 daily (except on Tuesdays)

I do love not to just pick and eat blueberries but... to catch their likeness in quick
watercolor paintings.

When I was finished picking and painting 
I made up a little basket to take over to my dear friend Jan.
