Last weekend was my first trip out of the house since my surgery on August 7th. We drove to the lake of course! It was a lovely sunny cool day.
Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada
The water level is high and there is not much beach.

Merfy and I enjoyed the scenery, and the sun on our faces. (, bright sunlight on your face when being photographed, is better than photoshop!I look like I did when I was 30! Not bad for a 64 year old fart!)

A lovely sunset to end a very enjoyable day.

  1. I am thrilled that you are healing - a visit to that beautiful spot could only be beneficial.
    You look most excellent in that photo too.

  2. Hubbers is pretty good ( make that a dab hand ) with the camera, you both look. " Absolutely Fabulous" I'll remember the sunlight tip next time Hugh has his camera out.

  3. Welcome back, Karen. I hadn't realized until now that eye surgery makes you young!

    1. I actually had heart and artery bypass surgery David. I am hoping when I am fully recovered, I won't feel so physically old!

  4. ...being outdoors in nature is good medicine.

  5. You look wonderful! I hope the recovery continues quickly!

  6. oooooh karen, what a gorgeous picture of you!! i did not realize you had heart surgery, wow, you have been through so much!!

    beautiful images, i'll bet it felt great to be out!!!

  7. beautiful images. looks so serene.

  8. I'm glad you got out and got some sun. You and your dog look very happy!

  9. Gorgeous beach shots and that one of you and your sweet doggie is fantastic! ~ Xox

  10. So blue. And I'm soaking up that last shot.

  11. you look beautiful. It must have felt so nice to out after so long! At first I thought that the water levels must be very, very low and then I realized you must be on a Great Lake.

  12. Nice to see you out and about. You picked a most beautiful day.

  13. beautiful images ...lovely puppy...
    Hope, you are geting better and better.

    Have a wonderful day

  14. Love the photo of you and Merfy, and a gorgeous sunset!

  15. so sorry to hear about your surgery, but it saved your life and you are looking wonderful. Take care and take time for yourself. Sitting by the sun by the lake is perfect. Enjoy the rest of your week and continued recovering. and thank you for visiting my blog this week.

  16. Very nice photos and you and your dog, you are both adorable and go well together

  17. Hello Karen, having that emergency operation would've been such a shock.
    Its delightful to see you as you enjoyed that time beside the water with your sweet doggie. Keep healing and enjoying life. All the best, Sue xx

  18. You *do* look fantastic, but I do not think that beauty is due solely to the direct sunlight! So glad you’re better ... and that you were able to get out to visit your Lake. A perfectly beautiful place in the sun.... and a big boost to the healing process.

  19. Nice set of pictures. I remember when I saw one of the Great Lakes (I assume this is one as well), I was struck how much like the sea it looked!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

    PS: hope you are well!
