I can't express how grateful I am for my pretty magenta kayak...
nor the handsome bearded guy of mine who can lift it up onto the Jeep rack for me, ha ha!
(We're both short....I am 5.2 and my love is only 5.5
but we found a way to get our boats on our very tall Jeep...where there's a will, there's a way, ha ha).
Our boats bring us to such lovely lovely spaces & we see such amazing beauty.
This pretty little deer was all curled up in a ball sunning herself on the river bank...
until I squealed with delight at the sight of her that is!
This particular river leads into the big lake that we live a short walk from and on this day the waves
were big & choppy so some exhilarating wave play was had, ha ha...
We saw tons of turtles sunning themselves on logs...they weren't too worried about us.
(Following this day we promptly went out for a waterproof bag for the camera, ha ha!)
Oh it's so awesome & centering to be out in nature...enjoying it gently & healthfully.
For us, that's what this summer is all about...
Being out in our boats & being in nature, enjoying each other,
getting big & small house projects done together and just being outside in the yard with the buns.
It's feeling like a lovely summer so far.
