Summertime ... going, going, not quite gone


Our weather here has been so nice.
Cooler temperatures and very low humidity.
Low humidity in the south in the summer is almost unheard of.
In my mind, it's cause for celebration.
Time to grab the doggy and a few simple snacks and head for the lake.
You're welcome to come along.

Today we're just going for a late afternoon sightseeing cruise.
With this type of cruise the captain may be of the canine variety or he may use his feet to steer the boat.  As you can see it is a pretty laid back affair. :D

We'll just enjoy the nice weather,
take in the beauty around the lake
and ...


Sound like a plan?

The days are getting shorter, but the summer isn't over yet.
Let's savor it while we still can.
Wishing you a good last week of August.


  1. Beautiful photos, Kim. Looks like a wonderful boat ride. xo

  2. Perfection, Kim! One thing that I love about seeing your photos of the lake is knowing that lakes on beautiful summer days the world over look much the same. One gets that sweet sense of familiarity just as if that place had been visited before. Love the photo of the dog driving...that's one talented pup!

  3. I like the tail end of summer. The nights are longer but the air is cooler and sweeter. I loved your photographs - your dog makes a good skipper;-)

  4. These are great photos (your dog is so cute). :0)

    I just published a post on the Blue Waters Mountain Lodge in western N.C. We took a pontoon ride on Lake Santeetlah one evening, and it was beautiful and sooo relaxing. What lake were you on?

    Thanks for sharing and enjoy the rest of your summer.

  8. How pretty! Your dog is so cute and photogenic, Kim!
    Your photos are all so summery and inviting. Did you jump off the side of the boat into that pretty blue water?

  9. Oh Kim.... this looks like so much fun!!! Your photos are beautiful.....looks like your doggy is doing a great job of steering the craft.

  13. Dear Kim,
    I have been catching up with you today and just read your post on the passing of your nephew Kevin..I am so sorry, truly heart broken for you and your sister and family. My prayers and thoughts are with you all.
    I am glad to see you were able to get away and spend a peaceful day on the lake. Its just beautiful. We will be gone the second week of Sept. to take my parents on a little getaway, they need some rest and peace since my sister's passing. I know how you are feeling and I only wish I could be their in person to give you a great big hug..

  14. Oh, it looks just perfect...and so relaxing. Nothing like spending time on or near the water!
