Mel’s 65th Show and Tell: Lake Anne August 13, 2009

Filed under: Show and Tell — arminta @ 12:24 pm

Yes, I am showing an entire lake. It’s mine…. OK, maybe not mine, but for one week a year, this bit of shoreline is mine, all mine. OK, maybe not all mine, but mine and my family’s. I think you get the point…



This is the water as viewed from the little row boat that G takes me out on. Scary, BTW. I love the water, but I don’t like rickety little row boats or canoes. I’d rather just swim.

Our lakeside backyard. H.E.A.V.E.N.

We’re going back the week before Labor day (that’s right, I’m milking  a 10 day vacation out of five vacation days). I can’t wait. Just me & G and mother. Literally our first grown up vacation since big C was born. Hopefully, our last.


Wanna see what the rest of the class is showing? Of course, you do… check it out here.

  4. Looks awesome. Our heaven is our cottage in the 1000 Islands. We are going for Labor Day and I cannot wait.

    Lovely pictures! I’m envious…

    And as for milking vacation days for all you can, this year I have officially 3 weeks time off. Because of skillful planning, strategic use of statutory holidays, and a great boss it has worked out to 4 and a half weeks.
