down by the river

I went down to the river at sunset Saturday evening. 

I took pictures and walked across the causeway to the other side to get
a better angle.  I noticed a familiar truck parked on the grass and then a
familiar black dog.  I knew it was our son, Mark.  And I figured he was fishing
though I couldn't see him.

Mark discovered fishing this summer and loves it.

His dog, Buckley, is a black lab/border collie cross and he LOVES the water!
He had so much fun playing with this driftwood log.  He'd push it out and around
and back to shore, then try to pick it up.  So cute!

I used Picnik on this photo to change it a bit. 

I noticed how much the sun has moved over in the sky since I took sunset
pictures in July and how early it sets now ~ 8:10!!

We had 4 days of beautiful sun and gorgeous temperatures in the mid to high
20's (high 70's) but it has ended.  It is raining and very windy but warm today.

I'm going to a friend's camp with some of our Bible study girls (the chickies)
for the day.  It won't be a very nice day on the lake but we'll share a lot of
laughs and good food anyway.

I hope you have a great day!




  1. Wonderful photos. Looks like Mark and Buckley had a great time too. Enjoy your day with your friends.

  2. I so enjoyed looking at your photos, there is such a sense of peace emanating from them. They just say "the end of a beautiful day, nearing the end of summer."

    Thanks so much for posting them.

  3. Have fun "camping" with your friends.
    I love your river shots and the photos of the son.
    I, too, have noticed the earlier setting of the sun. I'm just not ready for this fall thing yet.
    It hasn't gotten out of the 60's here and is windy, but sunny. Beautiful.

  4. Beautiful photos, Pamela...loved this post. Hope you had a great weekend with your "girlfriends".

  5. Hi Pamela! Oh, what a pretty place and great snaps of your son and his dog doing those cute things! My daughter has a lab and he jumps into mud puddles. :)
    Have fun with the chickies.
    Be a sweetie,
