And tinges everything pink:
As the sun rises
We enjoy a moment of rose-tinted serenity.
The view from my new part of the lake
Is simply stunning on an early morning, don’t you think?

A couple of weeks ago, we got the news that our beloved jetty (where we used to live)
Had been removed because it was old and rickety.
That was part of its charm:
We loved the way it curved and warped and bent;
The way it seemed to stretch out to infinity.
It was a big part of the children’s childhood —
Peaceful moments under big skies;
And it was there I enjoyed so many moments
With a best furry buddy.
RIP, dear old jetty – you will be missed!
(Luckily, I took a lot of photos of my favourite place
So there are still plenty to share with you.)

September has been magically warm.
One evening, my daughter and I went down to the lake
For a sunset swim.
The dogs dived in for joy
While the sun cast its orange glow
On water and stone.

Sunrise and it’s the autumn equinox:
The lake is still and beautiful
With rising mist in shades of pink.
The moon admires itself in the water –
Reflecting brightly like a silver penny.
(I’ve forgotten my big camera —
But as the saying goes, “The best camera is the one you have with you.”)

A couple of weeks ago, I was at my brother’s wedding
And enjoyed layers of love.
(This is my favourite shot from the day – just after the wedding ceremony was finished.)
At the end of the day, I went for a lovely walk
And met these newly shorn creatures, who had just lost their layers of fur.
They seemed to be saying, “Alpaca my bags and come along with you.”
And, finally, the sunset did not disappoint
As I enjoyed the little village
Nestling in layers of gold.
Layers both conceal and reveal the beauty within.

It wouldn’t be summer
Without an excursion down to the lake
And a hot air balloon
Floating away over lilac

Up on the Downs in Sussex, England,
On a magical sunset evening —
Layers of golden hills
Glow like jewels
While horses graze
And rainbows sparkle.

I’m off to England at the end of the week —
It’s a very special occasion.
My brother is getting married!
So there will be celebrations, the eating of good food
And some long walks up on the South Downs, I hope.
I’m looking forward to a love-filled week.
(I’ll be back on my blog in a week or so. Until then, take care!)
For more love stories, please visit: Our World.
Enjoy the view.
Throw out the line
And catch a beautiful
(Lots of events planned over the next coming days, so I won’t be able
To visit your blogs. But thanks for your visit!)

The jetty in my old neighbourhood
Is still as delightfully wonky as ever.
And the world looks deliciously
Enchanting with the rising sun.
