At the lake

At the lake


We are so enjoying the lakeside life with our sweet friends.


Torch Lake is simply lovely, too.


This morning, we took a short drive up the lake to Alden, a cute little town.


First stop was the Mill House, set in lush gardens


Next stop, the knitting shop next door, where Sue kindly wound yarn for the next pair of socks for me.  I haven’t finished the current pair yet, but it pays to be prepared!


After a bite to eat in the Muffin Tin cafe, we found a few cute souvenirs before heading back.


Whilst we were out, the weather had cleared and the sun was shining.  Time to take the boat out?


Leia the dog was perfectly happy on board as we spent a fun hour or so sailing around the upper part of the lake.  There are some gorgeous properties around here and on a sunny afternoon, the lake was beautiful.

We were back in time to welcome another couple of friends to celebrate a birthday with a super relaxed dinner followed by a scrumptious cake complete with candles.


As the sun was going down, we jumped into the boat again, for a sunset cruise.




A wee bit chilly too, but who cares when there’s a sky like that?


So, we’ll say Goodnight from Torch Lake at the end of a beautiful day spent in delightful company.  We are blessed indeed.
