wall to wall sunshine

On knitting holiday...

A happy clan we are indeed. off to the cottage Sunday to enjoy the first swim and first nice day since who knows when. Poune leading to way to the beach... She was so happy to take a car ride and sniff the familiar air as we got closer to the Lake...I find it so funny to watch her recognize the road to the cottage after over a year and 40 minutes or so of steady driving. sniff sniff sniff!

The deerflies are a remind us we are still on earth.
Pounie would try to catch them and not looking very pleased about them!

Peeking over the rock wall. The sandy beach is very steep and slopes down to the water which is rather high this year. Highest we have seen it yet! This makes the beach smaller in early summer...who cares anyway!

After a long walk around the Lake we end it with a cool dipp for tired puppy paws. Yum!

There was a friendly bass at the dock. He was curious about the tiny fingers trying to touch him.
He swam around and around and would kiss Chloe's fingers...hungry and brave fish? He was beautiful, almost blue around the edges. What a thrill for the kids. This places is enchanting.

Brides bouquet. My husbands youngest brother was married Saturday. We danced and ate too much.

A visitor in my garden...

The pale foxes are blooming now...I adore them. Expecting Peter Rabbit any minute really.

So envies :) I miss the beach in denmark so much, not a lot of places to go for a swim here in London. But it looked like you had a wonderful day, especially your sweet dog :)

Poune is really such a doll. The foxglove is so pretty, I can't have them as poodles love to nibble on plants and flowers and that would not be a good thing with this plant. Looks like you had a great time.
