Laura on the Lake

Laura on the Lake

Laura rides on our friends’ boat on Kentucky Lake as the sun is setting on a fun day.

This past weekend, we went with our friends the Riedels  and the Streets to the Streets’ condo near Paris Landing at Kentucky Lake. And even though the lake is named Kentucky Lake, we were actually in Tennessee. For the most part, at least. We did ride up across the lake into Kentucky for dinner on Saturday night, and that was where this photo came from.

As we were making our way back to Tennessee, the sun was starting to go down, and the light that evening was just right. Laura was sitting in the front of the boat and enjoying the last few moments of sunlight before the sun went down behind the trees. The air was cooler, the breeze was light and enjoyable, and the mosquitoes hadn’t quite started biting yet. And besides that, the company was good, too. All nine of us in the boat, enjoying a peaceful ride after a good meal with friends. It was quite a night.

I do like that Disney Cruise Line shirt she was wearing, too. We went from cruising on a big ship in the ocean at the first of the school summer break to cruising in a smaller boat on the lake for the end of the summer break. A pretty good way to start and end the summer, in my opinion.

I actually took several photos in those few minutes when the light was great, and this one was my favorite. But that doesn’t mean that you won’t see some of the others here sometime in the future. And there may or may not be a video of some of our lake fun coming sometime soon, too. In the meantime, feel free to enjoy our video from last year’s visit.

Enjoy life with the wife you love all the days of your fleeting life, which has been given to you under the sun, all your fleeting days. For that is your portion in life and in your struggle under the sun. - Ecclesiastes 9:9
