On Wednesday,August 29,my sister and I took a day trip north of Winnipeg,to visit family at their cottage.Actually this is Jake's brother,his wife and two daughters,but I prefer to call them my family,as the term in-laws just doesn't feel right.
They own a cottage on the shore of Lake Winnipeg.
We picked one of the hottest days of the summer to make this 2 ½ hour trip.
Today I am showing just a few pictures I took while we were there.
This was the beautiful scene as we approached the beach area.
On a less hot day,I would have loved to spend hours just relaxing in the shade of the trees and watching the water,but on this day,we chose not to spend too much time there.
Looking up at the sun through the trees,one can almost feel that heat.
Of course for those ,like my niece,who love the water,a dive into the water proved to be very refreshing. The water was very shallow here,but that did not keep Claire from having a good time.
I took several shots of the waves and was pleasantly surprised to see the colours I had captured.
No,there was nothing in the area from which this could have reflected,so I have no idea what it is.
I think it must just be the reflection of the light. Whatever the cause,it makes for a pleasing picture.
I thought this one looked like someone had thrown a handful of pink confetti on the water.
I need to show the creativity of these two girls.Claire made this flower pen for me.The flower is made of duck tape.I think it is beautiful.
While Claire was making a flower,Olivia was busy painting her nails.
Look at the creativity shown here.I might add both hands were perfectly done.
This girl has great talent when it comes to drawing things,and some of that shows through on her nails.
We had a great time visiting with this lovely family and were served several delicious meals,in the air-conditioned comfort of their cottage.
Thanks Tim,Liz,Olivia and Claire for a wonderful time,I think I might have to make another trip up there before winter.
