365 Inspirations—201: Dinner on the Dock

"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky."—Rabindranath Tagore

Our spontaneous trip to the lake is almost over. We leave early tomorrow morning! The weather has been perfect and I haven't felt like being inside, so I'm typing this post late at night.

We had a barbecue in the afternoon with our friend and then she had to leave for a concert in the city. We spent the rest of the afternoon reading, swimming and floating on the lake.

To end our evening, we had dinner on the dock.

It was the perfect ending to a spontaneous getaway. We sat out there for a very long time and watched as the sun slowly sank behind the trees and the sky changed to deeper colors of pink and crimson.

Sparrows glided along the surface on of the lake and every now and then would dip down for a little drink or to catch insects. We watched them for a good hour. Now the moon and stars are out on the dock, so it's time to go out once again.

How's the weather in your part of the world? Have you enjoyed the summer?


  1. Glad you asked: I live in Phoenix which is beautiful. But summers are lethal with 113-120 degree heat. The Winters are very nice and into my 6th year, I'm only NOW appreciating the mountains and Sonoran Desert!
