Little Getaway

images clickable for enlargement

With some unexpected down-time on our calendar, we made hasty plans to trek up to Milford Lake for a few days and positioned ourselves here:

No, we didn't perch in a tree.
It's a cabin:

#4 to be precise:

I took a lot of photos like this:

And this:

Because I ♥ seagulls.
Like the one in the center of this photo.
Which you might not notice without the inset crop:

So you can imagine me nearly falling out
of the boat when I spied this:

♥ ♥ ♥

I love sunsets too:

And my boys:

I was pretty keen on the marina:

Mostly because of Tiger...

...the boat inspector:

In the lazy afternoon, when fishing isn't so great — especially with waves cresting at 3 feet and boys singing the theme from Gilligan's Island as we'd crashed our way back to the cabin — I looked out these windows...

...and saw our beached boat had come unmoored.
And was floating away.
And was about to bash into another boat.

Charles and Son4 can run fast.
Run, Charles, Run.

Pull, Charles:

Pull, pull, pull:

The sun set a final time on our little getaway.

And it's always good to be back home.

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, according as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue.  II Peter 1:2, 3

Great photos!!!!! Looks like you had a really good little trip! I would call, but I'm working a ton this week for rush. I'll try to catch you this weekend, if not before.
