Things I never tire of at the log cabin...

Some of the things I never tire of at the log cabin....

Kayaking on a calm lake...





Seeing my favorite Loons and hearing their haunting calls....






Humilating my animals by putting them in a ridiculous dress and entering them into a doggy parade......but that's another story....

We have not been canoeing or kayaking yet this year. The hubby's too busy. We are lucky to just get away for a couple days.

Scout is wonderfully cute as always.

Look at that water and how clear it is!
I hope Scout won a prize in her pretty dress!
Have a great Monday,

The view from your kayak is always a treat-the water is so clear and clean. Beautiful. I see the loon chick is being watched over and protected well by the parent Loons. Great picture. And that face on Scout is way too cute! I see a fun blog entry about a puppy in a parade....:)

What a beautiful peaceful place! It reminds me of the lake where my father built our family cottage when I was growing up..loons and all!

(Oh, and your beautiful puppy is growing so fast! What a gorgeous little doll!)

Scout looks pretty darn happy about that fuschia outfit!!

This DVM's Wife's Life said...

Umm, Scout is getting bigger! Wow has she grown! Do share the pictures of her in her cutesy dress.

I think she likes getting dressed up...a wise dog never tires of attention even if its funny attention at times.

Jen said...

Oh poor Scout!
:)

Constance said...

I see that Marvin didn't let you dress him! Cats are much more dignified than dogs. Dogs just want to please their owners and cats just flat out, don't care! Ha Ha!

I wouldn't tire of the relaxing scenery up at your little cabin paradise either!

You are very similar to my teenage daughters..they also think Dogs should dress up for a parade!!! ;)

Dawn said...

just catching up with you! i sure loved your fourth of july celebration... what a beautiful way to spend the day, just your hubby & the great outdoors!

enjoy your week!

grammy said...

I am sure kayaking is wonderful. I have only been in a canoe and that is nice. You must have had to carry the puppy in the parade. Next year it she can pull you (o:

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Poor little puppy.. How could you do that???? I heard Scout crying and crying... She told me she prefers bluejeans and sneakers!!!!!

Sounds like you all had a wonderful week at the log cabin... Did Marvin HIDE when it was dress-up day????

Love you bunches,
Bets

Hi Shelley!

Beautiful pics of the lake too

This Country Girl said...

I don't think Scout looks humiliated...she looks content! :)

I have never kayaked before, but I'd love too. I've been canoeing before though. I can see where you would love kayaking on that calm lake!

Have a great week, Shelley!

Scout is going to have such a wonderful life at your cabin. I'll bet she loves dressing up. She is so pretty and sweet.

April said...

Oh, my goodness...Scout is getting to be a big girl FAST! How much does she weigh now? Such a sweetie! Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous!

Mandie said...

Scout looks so cute and what beautiful pictures!! You are a great photographer.

Cassie said...

Soooo calming indeed.

The pic of Scout is cute. You KNOW she loves being girly-like! I need to get over to her blog and see what she's up to. X-C

KentuckyFarmGirl said...

Hi! I have missed your Scout posts! Look how fast she is growing! Love all the pics.

JyLnC said...

Scout is growing up so fast and I love his expression. It seems like just yesterday that he was a puppy and now he is starting to look like a grownup. I'm sure he still acts like a puppy though. :>)

Dixxe's Doodles said...

Wow Scout is really getting big! The loon baby is sitting pretty in the water and the water looks very inviting! My modem was fried by lightenting Friday Night after an already Trying day!! But today Im back, I leanred how to replace a modem over the weekend...not too hard for a country girl to do!

Leedra said...

Poor Scout. Love the loon photo.

I'm glad you never tire of these things at the cabin, but I suspect Scout may tire of being dressed up. She is really growing.

NCmountainwoman said...

The lake looks so smooth and clear as glass. Can't believe Scout is already getting more grown-up looking in her face.

Judy said...

Great photos and I'd never tire of those things either. Love Scout all dressed up too!

The Retired One said...

Ok...what is the number for the Humane Society????
Dressing up Scout???? Poor baby!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I don't think Scout needs to dress up for the parade...her face is cute enough to steal the judge's hearts. Those are more exceptional photos.

Kristin said...

I really like the photo of you kayaking. I've been kayaking only once but would like to try again. Scout is a cutie - she looks like my parents aussie shepherd when she was little. Did she win a prize in the parade for being such a diva?

Michele said...

My favorite thing about when I go out on the lake to fish is the Loons and their cries... it literally sends chills up my spines. I absolutely love it...

violetlady said...

Hi, Shelley. Haven't stopped by for awhile. I am doing some catch up with blogging. Hope you are well. Great photos, as always.

smallpines said...

That first pic is just gorgeous - exactly my favorite kind of water ... you can get out and wade!

country gal said...
