More from my weekend with friends.
It was a much-needed respite, away from the city, into the woods, beside the lake. It’s a busy recreational lake, with an eclectic mix of over-the-top show houses, with yachts and all the toys of the super-rich, next to little family cottages with fishing boats and kids in inner tubes. My friends have worked hard on their little piece of paradise, and I am so very fortunate that they open their home and their hearts to me. I am a city girl – I’d wither away without my city life – but I am also a country girl inside, the one that grew up in a tiny town in the mountains, swimming in mountain lakes, riding horses in the woods – and dreaming of life in the city without understanding how much I needed the woods and quiet and open water.
I’m at peace there, in their quiet cove, in a way that I need.
It’s been two years since I was there last – too long. I hope to be able to spend more time there in future.
The friendship I share with them is a huge part of that as well. Occasional play partners, we have an inordinate amount of sexy fun. But they mean more than just that to me. I love the play, don’t get me wrong, but I love the friendship, the ease and joy in our friendship, even more. I think these images hint a bit at that. They were very good sports in helping me snag a couple Scavenger Hunts that I was surprised were not listed.
I was surprised to see this wasn’t on the Scavenger Hunt list! Life Buoy/Lifesaver is there (snagged by the vivacious Molly and the audacious Modesty) but the kind of buoy that directs boats and ships to safe waters isn’t there.
Now it is. ;-)
Hammocks are sooo much fun! And especially ones that are possibly in view of the neighbors and the rest of the lake community…
And one more gratuitous pussy jewelry shot…
I mean, sunset on the lake shot…
