We spent a fun weekend on the lake. Sunday morning, I was greeted by 7 or 8 little barn swallows grooming themselves on the lifelines and jib sheets of the boat next to us. I stole this shot of one in the morning sun. It’s hard to get a good photo of these little ones because they usually dart around and never light on anything close by.
Yesterday I took Julie and six of her girlfriends out for a day on the lake for her birthday. We sailed to the cove and then anchored. Sunbathing, floating, grilling, music, dancing and laughter ensued. I enjoyed a beautiful day with a lovely group of young women.

We went sailing today with Kurt. It was breezy and sunny and cool. Like a spring sail should be.
We pulled into the recently reopened Gnarly Gar restaurant to check out their slips. We found one that fit our boat, and went in for a cocktail. We ran into this mallard mom and her 13 baby ducklings.
I enjoyed playing with my big-girl-camera while photographing the moon last night. The first one was right after it rose above the horizon, and the second was shot a while (and many frames) later. I was especially pleased that I got a good shot or two given that I took them from the boat. It’s a magical time for a moon dance….
We rafted up with Marty & Sue in Bee Creek over the weekend. No wind, but we had beautiful weather.
We were treated to an exceptionally stunning sunset Saturday evening. This photo is not edited; the colors really were that amazing.
And in the morning we were surrounded by hazy fog rising off the warmer-than-air lake water.
Twas beautiful, indeed.
We spent Saturday & Sunday nights on the lake this past weekend with Marty & Sue. As I looked back over the photos I took, I was captivated by the different colors in the sky from shot to shot. These are several from a 24 hour period, Saturday evening to Sunday evening.

And the crescent moon again, Sunday night:
Life is good.
I spent this weekend on the lake with some girlfriends on Nirvana. In the cove that we anchored in, there is a lovely view of both the sunset and the sunrise.

And Sunday morning’s sunrise glow from the v-berth hatch.
We ended up sleeping on the boat in our slip last night. Lori, Marty & Sue, and Joe did the same. Sunday morning we all hung around and visited. In the afternoon, Monte and I went out on Marty & Sue’s boat and went for a great sail up past Windy Point and back. The winds were sporting! Here’s a shot from that trip.
