Stormy Weather & A Few Pretties....













Hi everyone...

Hope you are all well and enjoying Summer...

Last weekend at the cottage, was the worst stormy weather I have ever seen there!!

The wind cranked up out of nowhere...and the heavens opened with buckets of rain! For 2 days!!! Non-stop thunder...lightning...100km winds...and RAIN!!

Saturday was very windy and rough, but managed to stay dry... 

Our beautiful sandy beach was clobbered once again...

Nothing like the fury of a Great Lake...

And of course...a few pretty flowers for you... 

          Enjoy your week...

                  Cheers!  :o)

  6. Stormy weather probably isn't what one wants when "going to the cottage!"
    Listening to the pounding waves and rain must be book reading and nap weather??
    We had ten foot waves on Lake Michigana few days ago . . .
    We take a drive for a "look and see!"
    I never get tired of your "pretties!"
    I hope this coming weekend is better beach relaxing weather for you!

  11. Hi Linda, weather at cottage looks very grim but you got some great shots of the storm.
    I have been paying the penalty from all that manual work. My back/left hip is very painful and I have started treatment at an Osteopath . . . with a little reliefso far, but no quick fix ubfortunately. I will have to moderate my building work from now on. Oh to be 20 years younger . . . :)

  13. Hi Mrs. K! We were staying just a bit down the lake from you last week. Lightning struck the tallest tree there and a third of it shattered all over the road. It's still standing though and has an impressive stripe down the side now. Amazing power of these storms. I hope you are enjoying the summer!

  14. Oh dear friend, how I have missed your blog! What amazing photos! Looked like quite a storm! I sure wish we had some of that rain here!
    I have been busier than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest, and just can hardly find the time to blog lately. I still hope to do more. Maybe on the kitchen facelift.
    I have missed you, and your gorgeous blog posts! Hope all is well.
    xo Kris

    I'm sorry for the winds and the poor beach. but oh ccgirl...
    those skies and clouds and the water are like paintings by the old masters!
    and the chipmunk! well. I don't think they painted chipmunks.
    but you know what I mean. there are masters of photography too.
    and I know one. she has a blog with a weird name. LOL. xo
