Great Weekend...

Well as most of you know I went to my 30th High School Reunion this weekend, and it was a good time. Wearing my old jean jacket was a big success, but I had a much better time visiting with my best friend from the "old" days, Karen, http://lakesidephotography.blogspot.com/. She has a lovely home right on Lake Delta, near Rome, NY. If you can believe it where the water is now used to be the town of Delta, NY. The whole town was relocated before building Delta Dam, http://nlford.com/history/delta/deltapix/delta.htm. They say some buildings are still at the bottom of the lake.
We were greeted by the locals in the morning, the young ladies...and gentlemen.We walked in the afternoon and again were welcomed by all critters, fuzzy... and not so fuzzy.Thank you Karen, you are a wonderful hostess and make really great drinks!
I'll be back soon and we'll have a little gardening fun!

So nice to see a chipmonk again. there was one living under the front steps in my parent-in-laws summer house in Vermont. Used to ambush my father-in-law and climb into his trouser pocket for peanuts. Glad the big brown bear didn't!

I'm glad you enjoyed your reunion and reconnecting with your old best friend.

Mary said...

Sounds like you had a great time! Always nice to meet up with an old friend who shares your interests. Love the chipmunk shot and the damselfly, both. It always amazes me that they will flood an entire town like that....sort of eerie.

Hello Eve

Glad to hear you had a good reunion. Isn't it funny how places can just disappear of the face of the Earth - or in this case be completely relocated - in the name of progress?? Nice shots of the Mallards. Glad to hear that Karen was OK - no post from her for a while.

Best wishes, Adrian

Hi Eve

Happy to hear that the jacket was a success! My fav photo is the chippy on that lovely old tree with the moss. The colours are so vibrant!

Hi Eve - So glad you had a great time and got to enjoy your best friend from high school! I really can't believe they moved a whole town to put a lake in??? They did that here near us also. Though I do enjoy the lake...it doesn't seem fair to those who lived and loved their homes but HAD to go.
Your chippy picture is so nicely composed. And the ducks are great!

Eve said...

Thanks John!

Hi Arija! Sometimes the wildlife bring back such vivid memories!

Hi Lynne, thanks, it was a very good time!

Hi Mary,
I guess they decided it was better to have the lake than the town...

Hello Adrian,
I would have loved to have been there to see how that all went. Maybe it was the best thing...that lake is just beautiful and I lived near the damn for a short time, it is an amazing place!

Hi Jenny, That color is really nice, I didnt notice the moss until I worked on posting the pictures!

Hello Danni! I believe there were some pictures at dinner...hahaha probably wont see them tho. It's ok for me...sorry to dissapoint you... ;-)

Hi Barb,
Karen is a sweetheart and wow she just got her camera a few years ago...she's a quick study! She blowing me away.
