Karla, your pictures made me homesick. I grew up in that area and would go to the various lakes when I was a kid...Hemlock, Conesus, Canandaigua, etc. It is so beautiful there.

Oh, Karla, wonderful wonderful pictures! I have been through the STATE of NY but it was snow covered and quite beautiful. Love the look of the greens in your pictures. What clear water, I felt like I was riding along with you.

Thanks for reminding me of the beauty of our country...

Hugs,
Sharon

I'm so glad you are all enjoying the photos. I just knew you would; I love seeing the beauty of our world through your photos.

One of my friends on the horse forum said something about an adventurous spirit.... and during chores I considered that description, and wrote out this reply. I thought I'd include it here.
******************************
You have such an adventurous spirit!!
I was thinking about this while doing chores--such a ponder time, eh? Anyway, I don't think we'd qualify to be in the "adventurous" category. :D Mark and I live our quiet little lives out here on our farmette, only leaving really to work. We never go away overnight--but there's nowhere we want to go. We so thoroughly love staying home to tend the animals and keep up the gardens/lawns. But, water calls me--I love being near it, on it, in it. I drive by a lake every day to and from work and long to be on it. We talked about getting kayaks three years ago. At first we were way too busy weekends with Rachel's music stuff, then driving to get her every other weekend from college that semester--(due to homesickness and a boring college). I kept telling Mark we needed to take advantage of the lakes surrounding us, that they would make great day trips--which is what we like. So I tried a girlfriend's kayak and it was no surprise to me I loved it. I dragged Mark down to try it--and he was hesitant because he didn't think he's 6'3" frame and inflexible parts would fit in one comfortably. But he was encouraged by his trial run. :wink We headed to a store on Irondequoit Bay where you try before you buy--and he loved the first one he climbed into. Now he's hooked. He's the one who investigates the details on the lakes farther from us--and the rules (Hemlock and Canadice have important rules for water cleanliness). He finds the maps to the launch areas. So--we're branching off in our empty nest (well--sort of empty--the kids are here a lot :wink: ) situation--and having a grand time!! After we kayak, we always stop for lunch--so we've had more dates this summer than all last year. It just feels nice all the way around.

Our 25th anniversary is coming up in December--and Rachel says we have to go away and do something like "normal" couples, but there's no where Mark and I want to go. We don't eat out at fancy places--there's nothing we need for the house--(until one of the kids needs this couch--then we're going to replace it). So--I think we're more content than adventurous. :wink:

I don't know, barnbum, but I bet you and Mark would love to share a kiss at the top of the Eiffel Tower at night, and take a leisurely boat tour of the Seine. Or go to Italy and see Venice (my personal favorite) or sit on the bank of Lake Cuomo, or go to Capri and see the blue grotto.

Nah--who would take care of the horses? :wink: They'd miss me--and I them. The only place I'd love to go is to a big rented house on the ocean...
but I'd get bored? I'd end up jogging for miles because I had so much energy spared from not doing chores. :lol:

Thanks for the link... going to peek.

Oh gosh--how beautiful that is!! You should do a quilt in its honor!! :D Mark has been to Italy. The pictures are enough for me. :wink:

Karla go on an extended vacation? LMAO!
That's like telling me I cannot travel anywhere.
Karla is me in about 5 years. I will love to have my house and my piece of land where I can garden and do as I like. I can go where I want to go, but then again, I will be content to just tend to my chores with my garden and my house......ahh, will be sooo nice!
