Hello- and welcome to another weekend!
Friday is upon us again, and just like always, I am joining in Amy's (Love Made My Home) weekly series, Five on Friday.
The family just returned from 4 days at a cottage that my sister had rented in a river-front town about 5 hours from home. We drove up on Monday and spent several days splashing in the water, lounging on the grass and eating copious amounts of delicious food!
I took a zillion photos and haven't had much time to go through them, however I did take the time to pick out five.
Each evening we were blessed with some amazing sunsets and I tried to capture them with my camera.
Here, I have chosen my 5 favourites:
Number One: Mommy and Me
Because I am usually the photographer, I am never in the pics, but one evening my sister grabbed my camera while our daughter Afton and I crept out into the water.
Number Two: Pastel Clouds
I love how the glow of the sun, hidden behind the clouds, illuminates them from inside. Pinks, blues, purples and golds abound.
Number Three: Golden Line
Earlier in the evening, the sun still glowed yellow. My youngest son, Camden (6), commented on the "golden line" it created as it reflected in the water.
Number Four: Fire on the Water
Pretty intense colours, huh? Mind-blowingly beautiful!
Number Five: Sunset Love
Our river was full of clams. Not any near the shore where we played, but a bit further out. Often the empty shells floated up to shore and the kids collected them in their sand buckets. I found this one on the second evening while I watched the kids play-- long after what should have been bedtime!
Thanks for popping by everyone! I look forward to catching up on my blog reading and finding out what all of you have been up to!
More cottage and Italy pictures to come next week!
Hugs to all and happy weekend!
