A Perfect Day…

Yesterday morning found me weeding and planting bedding plants…finally the sun was out!! 

At 10:30am hubby got antsy… he wanted to enjoy this new found sunshine too…but in the form of a hike!  I dropped my trowel so fast, had a lunch packed and was at the door, with the dogs leashed before he knew what hit him!  Yeah, recess time!

This is where we ended up…it’s called the Shawnigan Lake Quarry. The road leading to the Quarry is minutes from where we live and then it takes about 20 minutes to hike in.  Years ago this use to be an old mining pit but has since become a lake..a VERY pretty lake!



I love the way there is a path right around the lake.  The water is crystal clear and is really deep…perfect for swimming!  No, my skinny dipping days are over but I’m just sayin’ my grand-dog, Lola, would LOVE this place!

All in all, it took us a couple of hours to walk around the lake, chow down and walk out…and I still had a whole afternoon left to do a bit more wedding and even a little stitching before dinner…YUP, it was a perfect day!!

And no one got the boot…not even the boot!  P1190055

Hope you have a Thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P

  5. What a beautiful day! I'm so glad hubby suggested a hike. THanks for sharing the photos. It's too hot here today to even consider being outside, let alone hiking.

  6. Gorgeous place for a walk.


  7. I was waiting for the other shoe--the boot--to fall and you did not disappoint me. You are good! Loved your perfect day and how you hit the ground running after mention of a hike .... Indeed a perfect day!! Hugs
