We spent our afternoon painting and swimming.
Brady, a neighbor's golden retriever joined us and entertained us
all afternoon chasing shadows and rocks in the water.
He really enjoyed entertaining himself and us playing in the water.








The Lake House was a Beautiful Home!!!
The first view is the front facing the street.
The second view is the back facing the Lake
with a deck, patio furniture and a Gazebo
The lawn led to the beach.  There was a glider under
the shade trees to sit, swing, view the lake and enjoy
a breeze on a hot July day.







How many artists does it take to secure a piece of plastic
 on a picnic table in the wind?
At least 3, Doreen, Cathy and Marilyn
I took the photo!



Marilyn at her easel. Proof that we did paint!


Come back soon for the next painting project or outing!
