We are getting out and about while the weather is nice. Looks like rain may be on the way in a few days. Hey, we'll take it. It's just so nice to be here.
Over the weekend, between bouts of Johnny painting here and there, we took our walks in the morning, as always, after coffee in bed.
(An aside-I think we may be the only visitors who rarely have coffee at the bar. We wake up super early, like at home, and have our coffee in bed while we read, or check emails...it's our ritual. People are shocked if they see us at the bar in the morning.
That being said, they would be even more shocked if they didn't see us there with wine in the evening)
We always try to get out early for our walk.
|A walk up to the old church.|
|Especially pretty in the early morning sunshine.|
Taking the road out of town to buy some art supplies, we pass one of my very favorite views.
This year, the scene is even prettier with the white blooming shrubs.
The weather has been fantastic. Great for photos.
I came across this lovely villa on a walk while Mr. J painted. Could not get closer, unfortunately, but still intrigued.
I have bought two pairs of boots this year, and I wore these for the first time over the weekend. Like slippers, only squishier. Light as a feather, too.
|I just want to beam this entire scene to my California garden.|
Sunday, we enjoyed a birthday party with friends in the morning, Johnny painted for awhile, then we headed to the lake in the late afternoon.
There is so much to love about spending an hour or two at the lake. Sundays, everyone comes out to play. All the generations show up. And they all talk to one another, play cards, walk along arm in arm, laugh...
From one side of the lake....
...to the other side of the lake. We are equal opportunity lovers of this beautiful lake.
Here is a little sight and sound video of a typical weekend afternoon, lakeside-
