September 11, 2011 was perhaps the last warm sunny Sunday of summer.
One of those days where no matter how much laundry you have to do or how much you would just like to nap all day..you head out on the lake. How can you pass up one last day on the lake?
The water is still reasonably warm, there is hardly a cloud in the sky. You bask in the sunshine and feel the coolness of the water spray on your face. This is a day we can only dream about in the winter.
Days spent with all five grand's out on the lake are special..the laughter, the camaraderie..leeches discovered and watched..ohhed and ahhed over. Some were leery..where has that leech gone..but the call of the water was too strong.
Playing a “king of the tube” game..I watched the unique cooperation between these three.. to first get Adam on the tube..then Noah and then..
to push each other off into the water..giggling.
It was a good day on Cass Lake in Northern Minnesota, the last out on the pontoon in the water day of 2011. It was just perfect.
There were only a few small reminders that summer is coming to an end and fall is breathing down our necks:(
