Summer Afternoon

We were invited to an impromtu swim and potluck supper the other afternoon.

The dogs weren't too sure about the swimming thing...

...but eventually decided to give it a go.

I love this shot...the quintissential "here's summer" photo!

The stone dock was created by my friend Susan...

...as was the walkway to her house, embedding different bits and bobs into cement blocks.

Her studio, built by her, is also pretty interesting.

On our way back to the house, the sun was setting.

Lovely reflections in the old glass.

Eight-foot tall sunflowers in their garden.

Food prep in the setting sun.

The funkiest kitchen table ever, with splashes and layers of paint so it never looks dirty.

And the post-dinner drinks enjoyed by the pond with a bonfire. Ahhh, summer.
