Cloudy and rainy in the morning, hot and sunny in the afternoon, followed by a glorious sunset over the lake.

Hubby's family had a family reunion at Sylvan Lake this past weekend.  It's a beautiful spot to get away from the hectic pace of life in the city and though we had just one day there, I captured as much of it for safekeeping as I could.

This is where the canoes remained.  The water was too choppy during the day for a canoe trip.

Sailboats and motorboats ventured forth on the other side of the lake during the afternoon.  I went for an afternoon drive and soaked in some scenery.

The canola is ripening, flowers in bloom, damselflies and dragonflies were in abundance, and the lovely lilts of songbirds amongst the trees all beckoned me to explore, so I did.

No boating adventures for us this day; though, by evening the lake was much smoother and water skiers were venturing forth.  It was a good day in the wild.  We even managed to play a set of bocce.

Day's end brought forth this glorious sunset.  Sigh.  I would have loved to watch it set over the lake but we were on our way home by this time.  Good company, delicious food, and this scenery - the best of combinations.

Hi Shirley! I think water makes a place more exciting and special.
Did I spot a Fireweed? It makes me think of Alaska.
