Lakeside Cabin Relaxation
This is the cabin we’re staying in at Table Rock Lake in Lampe, Missouri. We have a peekaboo view of the lake through the trees, and the walk to the shore is a mere 100 yards – if that – from this deck. We brought my brother’s dogs with us (the “buddies”) and they’re having a great time too. It’s so incredibly peaceful here and laid back – waking up to a quiet sunrise, coffee on the deck looking out at the lake, and slowly getting ready for a boat ride in the afternoon around Table Rock Lake.
Yesterday we anchored in a small cove after a nice ride around parts of the lake and had lunch and a swim. I’m told this lake goes all the way into Arkansas. It was refreshing (the swim), exhilarating (the ride), and completely satisfying (the company). Here are some pictures from the past few days in no particular order.
The sunset captured while driving across the bridge to the cabin.
Jeepers or JayJay (not sure which) taking an early morning swim in the lake.
Getting my feet wet in the lake for the first time. This is the dock just by the end of the resort beach where we are staying.
Jeepers smiling for the camera and waiting while we get the boat ready to go out.
Heading out on the boat under slightly overcast skies. This burned off fairly quickly and left plenty of sun for me to soak up.
The lake house I’d love to have.
The one I can afford.
At the helm
A little of the bluff scenery around these parts.
In the water. Peace out, dude. (My brother’s favorite hand symbol.)
Heading back while the sun sets. I love wake shots from boats.
Chris and Jeepers. Jeepers loves to “surf”.
My new buddy. Lily, don’t be jealous.
And sunset back at the cabin. All in all, a fabulous day and by the time I get home, I’ll have enough summer and sun in my system to last me through the months of gray, dreary Seattle winter. I hope.
