Lake House





15 year young golden retriever named "shelby"


blue heron on the shore, can you barely see it?



This past Monday, we spent the day at our dear friend's lake house on the shore of Lake Wallenpaupack. We met when both of our daughters became friends and we've stayed friends for ten years. To our delight, they invited us for a visit and we immediately said "yes!'.

We talked, we walked, we at lunch, we talked and pulled out some knitting-well-us girls did.  The kids (who are adults and teenagers) and the guys (middle aged kids!) water skied and water tubed.  That is too intense for me, knitting in the dappled shade is my speed for a fun time.  We ate dinner, we talked, we laughed.  In the early evening we went for a boat cruise on the lake and a bit up the river.

We saw:  one blue heron, many hungry ducks, six-eight deer (I lost count) and one regal golden retriever who is in her bonus years-15!!

  2. Looks and sounds so wonderful- a place where many memories are made. Love the stillness of the water and the reflection. Do you water ski Karen? Knowing you, you probably knit and water ski at the same time :)

  13. Oh, it all looks so idyllic! I love little getaways like that in the summer. My parents have friends with lake houses, and I live vicariously through their adventures;) That dog looks so sweet, and somehow so fuzzy that she looks like a puppy!
