A Day At The Lake

We went to the lake recently, and I was so surprised to see how low it was.  We had to walk a ways just to get to the edge.  It was a chilly day, but the sun was shining and the lake looked like it always does....so peaceful and pretty.

 
 
 
 
I spotted a few seashells that got washed up on shore.

 
There was a flock of geese nearby, and all of a sudden I heard their loud warning honk, as I got a bit too close for their comfort, and gradually one by one flew away.



 
The sun was so bright on the lake that it looked like little stars were caressing it.

 
I saw a knotty burl that was smiling back at me.  Do you see it too?

 
It was a beautiful day at the lake.

Beautiful lake pictures. It really is low on water though, I can tell.
I love our lake, too. Just give me water of any kind and I can find beauty in it. xo Diana

What a beautiful lake! I did see the smile in the burl. I also had to smile because the little stars you saw on the lake were just like the little stars I saw on the snow this morning. :) Have a great weekend!

It's me said...

I haven't been to the lake since it was warmer out and those beautiful pictures made me realize how much I really miss going.

Hey, who drew the word love in the sand? That was pretty cool.

Have a great weekend... :)

Very pretty shots especially the sun diamonds and sun spot in the water's reflection.

Imogen said...

It sure does look peaceful and beautiful there. I just love the way the sun reflects on the water, so pretty. Those geese are just too funny sometimes.

Stephanie said...

Oh my, a beautiful day indeed! How I would love to bury my toes in the sand and feel the warm sun on my face :)

Lovely pictures, sweet friend. Hugs to you!

WOW the lake is really low. Great pictures, you really did a wonderful job. Those geese can get quite mean, especially if there are babies around.
Glad that you had a good time at the lake.

How beautiful Sheri. Lovely pictures of the lake and mountains, and are those Canada Geese? I like to see them fly in formation, something we do not see here.

Our lakes are too frozen over to visit right now, but around Easter time, I hope they will be ready to spy.....last Easter, we drove out before sunrise, parked the car, and watched the steam rise as well as the sun, from the horizon of that lake....water and sky, nature at its best is one of the best ways to ring in the hope of new life. When we lived in Massachusetts, on the North Shore of Boston, we had the ocean as our backdrop for sunrise Easter services.

Your photos today dear friend, are so soothing. AND...we shall speak again! That was so fun, but what a bummer to be cut off...this too was also a very busy week, bustling about from here to there....I will call you. LOVE! Anita

Lovely post Sheri! With the geese coming back, spring can't be that far away! Have a great weekend! ~ Diane

Sheri,
So enjoying your photos today and the serene day at the lake. I certainly need some sunshine and blue skies as Texas has been hit with a severe Winter Storm and it's gloomy and cold. I am counting down the days to when I fly out to see Amanda next month-I just know I will enjoy beautiful weather.
Have a fun weekend!
Jemma

Looks lovely I haven't been to a lake forever in a day, the beach either.. I love seashells....maybe I should put that on a list I need to make.. Love n hugs Janice

Sola Scriptura said...

What a beautiful day out! I enjoy looking at the seashells that wash on the beach too. The knotty burl smiling at you made me smile too :)

Dewena said...

This looks as if it would have been a restorative day, Sheri. Good for the soul.

Kerri said...

Oh so beautiful, what a nice day! I now live right next to the ocean. However, since I moved I no longer have the space or time for my French shop. It does give me more time to train my show dogs so that is a good thing :)
Have a blessed week my friend.
xoxo

There is something special about a walk around a lake with all the reflections. Your photo with the twinkling 'stars' is so pretty too. This looks like a very calm and relaxing place, even better when the sun is shining!

Beatrice Euphemie said...

What a beautiful place - the water is so crystal clear! I like the smiling burl :) I would be happy if that was my home, too! xo Karen

I'm sure you could guess which image is my favorite. ;) I long been hypnotized by the dance of light and sea. So beautifully captured, my friend.

Although this was a lake...still gorgeous.
