Last week my husband and I got away for a long weekend to our favorite lake, alone!
No kids, hot dogs, chips or somores.
I brought my jean tablecloth and bouquets from the garden.
Lunch was wraps, cheese and crackers and fresh fruit.
Lobster and shrimp for dinner.
And to be sure we had enough "greens" in our diet I brought along fresh mint and lime to make mojoitos.
We had a very relaxing time, with lots of hiking, reading, boating, and of course quilting.
Quilting around the Sumac leaf prints.
The leaves all ready have a touch of color.
The beginning of August is way too early for color.
One of the empty campsites had this wonderful totem made by campers earlier in the summer.
Made with one turkey and one blue jay feather. A sprig of pine
Planted around the branch is St. John's wort,
a strawberry plant and a pine tree. A beautiful healing totem. No one has destroyed this so far and the ranger said campers seem to be watering the plants.
I love this campground, no electricity, no great beach, a small enough lake that only fishing boats are on it. The people who come here come for peace, quiet and nature.
And the extra bonus for our weekend, the August Full Moon!
We went out in the boat to enjoy the "super moon".
We were the only ones on the lake.
Who could ask for more.
Back in the camper that night I quilted in a little remembrances of the vacation.
