Summer Cottage!

I just came back after spending a week at a cottage. Man, I could really get in the cottage mode all summer!

I love the western exposure because of all the great shots you get at sunset.







Nothing to get up for except the good coffee! From left, my sister, Joan, my sister, Gail, and MOI. Morning Beach Babes!??? Hags??!!





A beautiful sandy beach literally right at your doorstep makes swimming and boating so easy!




An old mahogany boat they restored called, "Mr. Sub"! (They found it sunk to the bottom of a bay!)




Ah! Me...a dock babe!





We went to hear my brother-in-law sing on the porch of a resort nearby. Left to right: Me, Gail, Joan.




Bill, the one who plays guitar and sings harmony on the song I wrote and sing on this blog!





I love our yearly sister-fest at the cottage!

Wonderful photos! What a beautiful place to spend time with your sisters.

I often stop by your blog just to listen to the song. I didn't know you wrote and sang it!

Take care and enjoy your weekend.

You know I love this sort of cottage vacation and again it strikes me that the nature looks very much like Norway!

Mr. Sub looks like a beauty - to have a mahogany boat is a treasure you know!

You know I love that song and I'm sure Bill played it very nicely!

I do agree with you: 'If only we could bottle times like this! And uncork it when we need it!'

Looks like a fabulous vacation. Dreamy...a cottage, a good old wooden boat and music. I just love having a guitar around to sing along with good friends on a warm summer night. You are right about the sunsets..the first one is really incredible!!

I understand so well you love these annual meetings in the nature. You must have had a blast of a time in these beautiful surroundings.

As a Norwegian, I'm born to love the nature. And I'm happy to meet blogger friends that also knows how to use and prize our nature.

How nice to hear from you. Those photos depict a wonderful time!

Yes, our church choir will start up again in August, I believe. Our Sweet Adelines chorus had three weeks off in July, and now we're back to learning new music for our show and this year's competition.

I hope you're feeling better than you were the last time you wrote.

Hi MOI! As I read, this saying 'sisters are forever' flashed -- how true when I see these pictures. What a wonderful way to renew ties and enjoy the gifts of nature! A grand way to spend retirement years?

Great sunset shots. Must be a theme this week as I also posted sunsets from my vacation. See great minds think alike.

This is you singing? Are you kidding me? It's awesome! As is the writing!

Glad you had a great, relaxing vacation. I also wish the whole summer is like this.

HUGS!
