Summer came in with a blast here. We celebrated Solstice Wednesday night around a campfire with some friends. We went over to Mel's house with our neighbour Mike. She has a secluded beach with a gorgeous view up the lake. We even had a little renewal ceremony to celebrate the longest day. It was a fabulous evening with good food, good drinks, good fire and good company.
Thursday was a sunny hot day. It was also Aboriginal Day. So we celebrated again with swimming, fire, fishing and fireworks.
Swimming, swimming in my swimming pool - er... lake....
Mark's on top of the world!
1... 2.... 3.... Jump!
Time for some fishing in the backyard.
(yes, we went fishing, had a fire, ate smokies on a holiday type day and we had no unwanted visitors.... but to be fair, it wasn't a Sunday)
Calm and colourful.
Can't go wrong with purple mountains.
Great way to end the day. Fireworks and we don't even have to leave the backyard to see the show.
