Hello Every Buddy!
Jo reporting today. On Saturday I was invited to the lake cottage of my son's wife's family. I had been a visitor there before so I knew it was going to be a very pleasant day and it was!!
However, these lovely folks are not what we would call Dog People. They have no pets and don't seem to care to have them around, so Stella was not invited. I felt badly in the sense that Stella loves the lake, loves to swim, but could not come along.
We spent time eating, talking and listening to stories and soon decided to go for a pontoon ride. Since it has been a cool, late summer, it was not warm enough for swimming, but its a large lake and we enjoyed looking at the scenery.
One of the very best things we saw was a family of loons, and we were able to get up close to them.
We watched them while they dived, found goodies to eat and the baby stayed right close to his Mum. They are the Minnesota state bird, so we all love them for their beauty and their haunting call. My daughter-in-law told me they only lay two eggs at a time so its not unusual to just see one baby.
It was a lovely day, cloudy and then sunny, and we enjoyed traveling the lake and the visiting.
So excuse us for no Saturday Morning post, we were out playing!
Jo with Stella and Zkhat at home!
