Swim time!

One of the dogs’ favourite places for a swim

Is the jetty next to the floating sauna on our local lake.

I like it too —

Because of all the photo opportunities it gives!

It’s a peaceful place in the early mornings,

Where you can meditate on clouds and their reflections.

    • The lake is about a kilometre away and that sauna is on a little beach that is, apparently, used by the local caravan club. They are the ones who use the sauna. I go to the beach a lot and have yet to see someone in there – but apparently, it is in use.

    Fiona, that sky is STUNNING! What I always love about your photographs is that they look as though they are partially a photograph and partially a painting – as if the two are blended together, creating a work of art!

    Bellissima, my friend!
