A Day At The Lake

 

 

 

We were lucky enough to spend the 4th of July holiday at a friend's lake cottage and it was such a beautiful day. The weather could not have been nicer, with plenty of sunshine and a slight breeze off the water. We took a ride on their pontoon boat before dinner and it was really lovely to relax, have a cocktail and talk, as we slowly made our way around the lake.

 

 

 

Our hostess set a beautiful table for dinner with a view of the water and festive red, white and blue touches galore. We sat around the table for quite a while, enjoying both the delicious food and the good company. My contribution to the meal was my favorite summer salad; butter lettuce, green onions, mandarin oranges, strawberry slices, Chinese noodles and poppy seed dressing.

 

 

This was our beautiful view as we ended the day around the fire, waiting for the fireworks over the lake to begin. Just a beautiful and relaxing way to spend the holiday.

Happy Tuesday! I am excited because Megan will be here for dinner tonight and even though it is just for a few hours and she will be heading back to Pittsburgh, I am so looking forward to giving her a big hug and hearing all her news.
