A Day in The Glades


We are very fortunate that we have not one but two places to escape to
places where you can kick back and relax
and make new memories

Trev's parents tore down the original camp and built this one
about 14 years ago




it is right on the river ~ which is really low right now
and Trev spent many a weekend here growing up and has many memories 
like I do of the cottage

we kind of chuckle because if there should be one called a camp and one a cottage
the cottage should definitely be here as our other place is more of a camp
oh well ~ the names have stuck over the years and they shall remain



Sunday there was a little gathering
we had 27 people and 4 dogs
and a good time was had by all




this is Trev's favourite aunt ~ she just turned 86



of course we had enough food to feed a small army


this is Boo ~ she is hilarious ~ she barrels down the hill to the river
and just flops
she knows how to beat the heat




being on vacation ~ we had nothing to rush home for
so we stuck around after everyone left
helped clean up then I grabbed the camera and went for a walk



Miss Molly relaxing ~ she was a busy girl with so many people there



this is my FIL's latest car ~ I love it
and of course Trev brought his baby down for a spin
so we took the opportunity to get some shots of the two of them together.

It was a perfect day ~ beautiful weather
great food and it is always good when you can sit down and catch up
with family.

Happy Tuesday.

Thank you for taking me on a tour of your beautiful little get-away, and sharing some of your family stories. Your photos really do it justice!

What a beautiful part of the world Lori .... the river looks so clear and just right for a cooling off place for both humans and dogs !!
You are really lucky to have two retreats to get away to.... and, both as beautiful as each other. XXXX
