We were so lucky to have a week away at a cottage recently. How wonderful to sit by the lake, watch the wildlife, watch the sunset, go for leisurely walks and enjoy the sounds of the lake lapping on shore.
The cottage was right on the lake front and we could see the most glorious sunsets in the evenings.
Other cottagers and campers would flock to the lake front to view the sunsets. Who could blame them.
Even though it was hot during the day it was so lovely to sit by the campfire at night.
There were a few swan families that would swim by during the day.
Such noise when they decide to take off.
Lots of geese, on the grass in the mornings and swimming by with their families during the day.
Another glorious sunset.
It was a lovely relaxing week. Lovely to go away but even better to get home to your own bed. It makes you appreciate your own home.
I made a decoupage rock of the sunset by printing the photo onto paper, not photo paper as it is a bit too thick to stick properly. After it was covered in glossy mod podge and dried it was sprayed with a fixative. Now whenever I look at the rock I remember the gorgeous sunsets.
Be sure to have a look at my rock projects and see all the other types of rocks I’ve painted.
