My dear daughter invited me to go on an outing with a stop for a girls-only lunch today.
We drove up to a rustic, favorite restaurant of ours situated on the shore of an inland lake. Lunch was as good as we had anticipated, and we got caught up on much talking, talking, talking.
After we ate, we took a walk out onto the floating dock into the lake.
Poor Tucker (who was with us but waited patiently in our vehicle while we ate) did NOT like the way the sections of the floating dock rocked back and forth, up and down.
This is a shot across the narrow bay we were on. Yes, folks, it is the opening weekend of fishing up here in Minnesota. Some of the lakes we saw were a little more open than others, but none were free of ice.
On our way home, we stopped at a lake that is a favorite of ours to fish and canoe. I think it's safe to say that no one launched a fishing boat in here today.
It was a slow, fun, lazy, totally enjoyable day for this mom and her daughter. Hope you had a good day, too.
