Hello, everyone. Just trying to fit a blog in between a busy day of going to town, visiting friends, the first day of my official new work year (school started yesterday and I am shifting my part-time hours from early morning to mid-day) and a board meeting.
Yet, looking at these photos I am reminded of a quiet and peaceful friend-filled day on the lake last Sunday. Please enjoy a few photos of our Labor Day party on a small lake owned by friends.
Some of the party-goers opted to swim across the small lake. It was a sunny day, but cool. You have to admire the spirit of the swimmers.
Some folks waited on shore, laughing and talking. It was good to catch up with people not seen in a long time. It was a very pleasant afternoon of friendship.
Three or four of us walked to the Slate River bridge. This is an old railroad bridge which crosses the river. Nothing like the other “official” bridge walks in Michigan. This was a quiet bridge walk interrupted only by the sweet chatter of birds and soft footsteps along the gravel road.
The river greeted us as it moved in rippling blue beneath the bridge. Like in past years, we paused to admire the flowing waters.
A snake lay coiled on the road, probably the victim of a fast-moving car or truck.
The sun and shadows along our walk soothed our souls.
As did the enchanting lake filled with water lilies and reflections. Will save those photos for another day, a day less filled with busyness and activity.
Hope you are all well. How are you doing today?
