This past weekend Hubby & I tried to escape the heat with a quick trip to Lake Ray Roberts which is about an hour & half north of us. We took our friends Jerry & Ginger (the ones that share their pool with us as seen in previous post). We left about noon after Hubby had gone to see the oldest GRAND in a football scrimmage… (does anyone besides me think it insane that coaches take young athletes & put them through 2 a day training in DAYS OF 100 plus degree heat????) Oh well….OFF we go happy as larks to get away.
This photo of the trees along the path down to the lake says it all! The heat has taken it’s toll on everything!
Well, the boat wouldn’t start & we were all so frustrated. Hubby says she is going to the shop as he won’t have a boat (or anything else that won’t start when he turns the key). I bet she just needs a tune up but, still it was disappointing to not be out on the lake with wind in our hair.
But, I did want to share some of the beauty of the sunset over the water with you. Do you love a pretty sunset as much as I do? Does water soothe your soul like it does mine?
Do you wonder at the colors available in GOD’s Paint Box?
The place that we stayed was really pretty. It is located in a State Park. The name of the resort is Lantana & you can click on the name for the link to it.
A site with stunning views of the water, a great restaurant, nice rooms (rustic but, nice) & we really enjoyed our stay.
I took the photo above standing on the point of the patio (below) & it is such a beautiful place. We sat on the patio (just to the right of the photo below) & played cards until midnight.
What ran us off at midnight? The boys won the card game & a snake showed up for dinner on the patio (just like we did!). As we scurried off to our room we saw an armadillo (baby) over by our rooms. We also saw the young couple we had met down on the dock returning from fishing. And there was a couple our age that came to watch the meteor shower that was supposed to be taking place that night. So, see… many reasons to come to the lake & fun for all! Hope you enjoyed the photos & seeing how we are coping with this horrible heat. UPDATE: We did get one 10 hour period of rain on Friday night. It was a blessing indeed. Did it fix the draught? NO! Of course not but, it was a BEAUTIFUL site to behold. SEND US SOME MORE RAIN & COOLER TEMPS!
