a late afternoon at the lake

  lets go to the lake 
saying it seemed so natural, specially being here in vermont  and it being a few minutes from home.
 the weather that day was in the nineties, it was hot and wanting all the kids to just feel free and I craving that elusive quietness i have been seeking we went. it was late afternoon and after being at farm stands and market, little towns with aran who was shooting for her book we knew that just skipping rocks and dipping toes in the lake would make everyone feel better and i think it did just that. we enjoyed having aran, jon and miren here so much, we have lots of photographs to share and stories to tell about our time with the Lovely aran and her family but as i usually do here at la porte rouge is start from the end and work my way to the beginning. for  now i will leave you with the shpts of the lake on a summer day.

i think you have captured one of those summer afternoons where the minutes are somehow longer... almost a sense of being outside of time altogether. Just toes dipping in cool water. And beautiful children feeling free!

This trip to the lake looks like a dream. Funny, I don't know if I've thought of it this way before, but I believe I too "start from the end and work my way to the beginning."

so refreshing and relaxing. the water looks calm and cool. i am minutes from the ocean and having been taking afternoon swims more than usual this year. the water is such a stirring place to be. glad you are enjoying with your friends and family. ;)
