Time for a Change

It will soon be a year since I began this blog (June 28th) and in recognition of that as well as of the approaching summer season I decided it was time for a change. Of course those who know me will understand that I don’t make decisions easily! I was all psyched up to put a brand new face on the blog, but after a couple hours of wandering through possibilities and wondering which I preferred, I finally settled for a new photo for the header on the old page. Baby steps.

 

The photo is of our lake in the Cariboo. Each time I see it my spirits lift with the thought that in just a few weeks I’ll be there to take in my annual dose of summer serenity. Woot!

 

Pine fresh air, the call of the loons, treks to the outhouse in the 2 a.m. moonlight, creek-cold wash water. Ah, there’s nothing like it! I can hardly wait!

    What a delightful surprise to see that beautiful, familiar sight when I clicked on your blog this morning! :)

    I have so-o-o many photos of the lake, but thanks to our recent computer crashes this was the only one that wasn’t stashed away on a CD. It holds lots of sunny summer memories anyway.

    Change is good…very nice lake…where is it? Looks a lot like the area in the PNW I grew up in…

    Joseph, it’s a fairly small lake in BC’s Cariboo, 35 miles north and east of 100 Mile House. It’s inaccessible by public road, so is private and peaceful. There are a few other pictures of it on my Flickr site… pages 3,4 & 5: http://www.flickr.com/photos/69253724@N00/page3/

    Wow, Carol. I thought it was a pic of Cluculz Lake. Except Sinkit Mt was missing. But really, you’re not that far from me, so of course there should be similarities.

    No Gators? You mean it’s OK if you’re waterskiing & you …. (gulp) happen to fall? That’s actually how Michael Phelps trained for the USA Olympic Swim Team – waterskiing in Florida.

    Looks like a nice place – very serene.

    Nope, no gators. No waterskiing either. Because of its inaccessibility there’s no way to launch a boat, so there’s just our canoe and kayak… not much incentive for Olympic sports training enthusiasts.
