Coffee With Our Friends! #8.

Hi everyone on this beautiful sunny day! It feels like such a long time since we got together for coffee, and that’s because it has been a long time. Three weeks to be exact. I’m not sure what happened there, except perhaps my brain wasn’t working. Oh my, good thing Muffin reminded me, she missed getting together with everyone and so did I for that matter. And today we have a nice spot to visit which is right on the shore of our big lake and in a nice sheltered bay. There is a nice sandy beach to use, though you might have to share it with the geese.

Part of the beach is sheltered from the sun and there is a nice gazebo to sit in to stay out of the sun as well. Plus we have some nice big beach umbrellas to use and blankets to sit or lie on. There is a large grassy area as well and even a play structure for younger kids. There is a few picnic tables to use as well. This is part of a larger park and campground and there is just a very short walk in from the parking area. Hi Renee and Tiffany! Glad that you both could make it today. Hi Sheree, wow, Muffin went straight for you, guess you have a good friend there now. Hi Sharon, Lydia, Eshal and Maryam, glad you could all make it out today. Hi Suni, Dee, how are you both today?

There is lots of coffee as usual, plus tea, herbal tea, regular lemonade and pink lemonade. Hi Eugenia and Callie, I see Muffin is already showing Callie around the area. Hi Correne and Teddy, there he goes to join to join Muffin and Callie. Here is Nina and Mr. Cat and…wow, Muffin tackled him and the chase is on! Hi Rossana and Mila! So nice you could join us again and Muffin is already showing Mila around. Looks like all the cats are on their blanket waiting for their goodies, guess I better get them over there! Just help yourselves everyone! Over there at the end of the path is a nice long dock to check out if you like walking on the water. It’s one of those floating docks so it moves a little bit when you walk on it. Oh, look here, beside the dock are some more of our geese friends enjoying the shade.

There isn’t a lot of wildflowers in this park, there is a lot more people traffic here and people like to pick the flowers. But there is a couple “pearly everlastings” over here by the lake. And across the grassy area by that rocky spot are some “harebells” still blooming. This is about the end of the season for them. There is some beautiful scenery here though so it makes a great little spot for coffee or a picnic with family or friends.

It really is quite nice today with a temp of 25C (77F), not much wind and beautiful sunshine. It certainly feels warmer sitting here in the sun. A white throated sparrow is singing over there in that bush and a song sparrow is further over by the lake. And there is a blue jay calling from that birch tree over by the little rock hill. The cats are really enjoying themselves now playing fuzzball. Oh, and look over by those bushes, a deer eating some leaves not paying any attention to us. Time to try for a closer picture, there, I got one. A nice ending to our coffee time today. I really hope you have all enjoyed getting together again. Until next time, I hope you have a wonderful week and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  2. Hi Steve! It’s a wonderful park where we are today and, since there are games, I also brought I-do-by-myself! Mila is having a lot of fun with all the cats and loves goodies. I’ll still have a cup of steaming black coffee, it’s so good! I-do-by-myself, on the other hand, doesn’t stop to eat or drink, he’s too busy playing! Thanks for the coffee and the nice day. Have a nice day and see you soon!

  4. This is why I hate the climate over there, look at al Beautiful places with less time to enjoy.๐Ÿ˜พ. I Wish things could change,๐Ÿค”. How about a big roof that sends all the snows to the river or lake ๐Ÿค” so that the green places remain green๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜œ A nice idea though isn’t it ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜
