A day at the beach!

We're lucky enough to live close to some of the best lakes in the country.  We were able to spend some time swimming the dogs this weekend at one of our favorite spots.  When we first went to the lake on Saturday, there were several chairs and an arbor set up for a wedding on the beach.  It looked so romantic.  No one had arrived yet and the gentleman that was there looked a little worried.  But we reassured him that we would be out of the way before the wedding started.  On our way out people were starting to arrive for the ceremony and we didn't think they would like two large wet dogs attending.  I can't imagine why!! 

On Sunday, there was no one at the beach.  A rain storm had just rolled through and opened up to blue sky.  We had the beach all to ourselves!  What a treat!!  The dogs had a blast and slept all the way home.  Nothing like the smell of wet dog.  But it was worth it.  What a great time!

Our peaches are ripe!  We were able to pick enough peaches today to make some jam.  This year we got to them before the deer.  Not to worry, there are still enough left on the trees for them to have a nice snack!  Don't they look great?!!  Do you think our honey bees had something to do with how great they turned out??  Hmmm......

Oh......the smell of them cooking!!  Yumm......

And here's the final product just waiting to be spread on some fresh baked bread or ice cream.  Makes your mouth water, doesn't it!!
