The predominance of blue is just so fresh, I feel as if I have had that glass of wine myself! Lovely post.


There's no "just another...' about this! ;-)

Admittedly, our life is like one continuous vacation as we are now retired but it has been anything but relaxing and carefree for a while now. I would so enjoy a few days of R&R spent in such an idyllic setting.

You have, I think, the best of all possible worlds!

I am happy too to have another beautiful day.


I'd love to be sitting by the lake with you, Sallie - a glass of wine would be nice...

aaaaah...looks like a great way to unwind at the end of the day...nice spot to relax.
i'm easily entertained too. :)


It sounds a wonderful life of retirees. Good luck to you and keep up the hard work of enjoying yourself all week so that you can relax on Friday evenings . It was nice of them to put on an air show for you.


That sounds like a perfect way to end the week--even if you're retired. Hope to get there some day! Beautiful photos.


I cant wait for this to be me, with Memories of what Friday was! Beautiful images.

I know what you mean! We had our car in Friday, all I could hear was the young people saying "It's Friday!"
For us, Friday means that the tourists are on their way!!!


Great shots, looks relaxing..:-)

It looks like you are having a lovely summer. Thanks for your nice comments. Unfortunately, we are in a drought here (as is a lot of the nation). I do try to keep the plants in pots on the patio watered and blooming, but the rest of the yard is pretty dry. There is always the Botanical Garden to visit if I want to see some gorgeous flowers. Take care and enjoy the lake. Mickie :)


Beautiful views of the lake in the late afternoon light.

Hi Sallie. This gives me a good "giggle" - "Yellow Mellow" is a nickname, I have been given. You might have noted it on blogs of Diane B????
Seems strange to me that I was in the Eugene area, way back, and have no recollection of seeing any lakes??? But I was up in the hilly areas with a US Viet. Veteran to visit his family on their "farm"!!!! The US Viet.Veteran stayed on R & R at our country hotel in the 1970's in country NSW.
A long funny story that one, I can tell you, with an almost tragic gun disaster! Lesson learnt: Don't fiddle with antique derringer little guns, they might have a bullet that no-one knew was in it!
Great photo shots, especially the old war planes of WW 2. flying over the lake. Maybe they were giving you to a welcome back salute? Or is that too far-fetched - ha ha!

Presently sunny and cloudless, but going on the last couple of days, it will be cloudy and rain threatening by noon!

These collages create such a beautiful atmosphere! Love the soft shadows round the wine glass!


Beautiful shots. Makes me want to go sailing or then again the glass of wine looks appealing too.


beautiful. i love the white sails - so pretty. and i love a glass of wine and relaxation time, too! :)

Sally in WA

What a great place to sit back and enjoy the view!


Looks idyllic, a perfect start to the weekend. Have a good week: at last, the sun is shining here too!!!!!

I like the long evening shadows with the glass of wine. I could kick shoes off there and watch the boats and sunset. xo Jenny
