VACATION! Gettin away from it all......

VACATION
Intermission of a stated employment, procedure, or office; a period of intermission; rest; leisure.

Yep this year we took a vacation.....rest and leisure....
we loaded the boat
threw Marley in the truck
headed for the UP  "Yooper land"










The 3 bears showed up at the restaurant for my birthday supper!






 
We stayed in Bergland  Bay
at
AJ's Walleye Resort
Lake Gogebic 
the UP's largest inland lake

 
 
 Mike fished 


 Marley napped......
and
played ball



 
We then moved Eastward to
Coleman's Resort
on Lake AuTrain
 
a five minute drive to Lake Superior
 


 
more fishing and lots of nature greeted us there
 
A bald eagle calls the lake his home.....you could hear his screeching all day
 




I was kept busy making hummer food......what a joy to sit and watch
 
 

Mama turkey feels right at home parading her brood through the yard and hanging out sunbathing....
 
 
 
Marley and I did beg a boat ride....
I loved the colors of the water
 and
the flora growing under the surface
 

 
 


 

time flies so fast......




there were signs that autumn is upon us...

my favorite August snack
oh the trips we had in the Colorado Mts gathering these beauties


 
 
Kodah says
ya all come back!
