Perfection

This morning I rose early and was able to get a jog in before it got too hot.  After breakfast, I headed out to Stettler, where I ordered the material to refinish my kitchen counter top.  Then I headed to the beach at Rochon Sands...

I found the perfect parking spot.


I found the perfect spot on the beach -- a grassy knoll in the shade of a willow.


The beach was clean, clear and quiet.  This was the view from my lounge chair.


I could see clear through the water to the bottom of the lake.  
I swam out to the buoys marking the edge of the safe swimming area (before it gets deep) -- and back.


The pelicans were out at the Point.


I ate a little lunch, made a couple of watercolour sketches...
and left for home as the families began to arrive for the afternoon.


Playing again, for the first time.

We live near Yosemite Nat. Park, and the smoke from the fires is all over, and it is 104 on top of that.. So that water looks cool and wonderful. enjoy!
