Lake Walking In The Heat
Hello everyone! Is it hot where you live? It certainly is here and I suggested to the Mr. that we drive to Lake Junaluska about 35 miles from here to enjoy a walk around the lake today. He snapped some pics along the way which I'm sharing. I'll warn you ahead of time I look very hot, sweaty and windblown!
Lake Junaluska is such a beautiful place to walk. It is the headquarters of the United Methodist Conference and normally is bustling with activity. Many retired pastors live in homes scattered around the lake and conferences and retreats are typically held there year round. We love to go there to just enjoy the scenery and walk around the lake.
Here is a statue of a famous waterfowl commemorated at the lake. I think his name was Walter.
And some beautiful flowers along the walkway. The colors were amazing!
We took a selfie crossing the bridge. There were other walkers along the way and also folks kayaking and rowing on the lake. We all maintained a safe distance!
This shrub was on the far side of the lake approaching the pool area. It's so cute!
The gorgeous chapel where many weddings and worship services have been held. The Mr. has played trumpet there several times.
More beautiful flowers close to the chapel.
And a final picture before we head back to the car and drive home. The sky was blue, the clouds were lovely, the flowers gorgeous and the sun was hot, but it was worth it all to walk in such a lovely place on a Sunday afternoon!
How about you? How did you spend your Sunday?
Until Next Time,
