Summer With Friends

Posted on: August 26, 2014

We are blessed with so many good friends and this past while we have had the pleasure of spending time with many of them. I’d like to share some pictures with you.

We have lived in this area for fourteen years and only just discovered a wonderful place called the Riverhouse Restaurant. It is so lovely to sit on the patio, watch the sunset over the marina, and share a delicious meal with good friends.

We enjoyed a fabulous barbeque at our friend’s acreage. We were greeted with a welcoming sign which I believe means “Home Forever More” as we pulled in the driveway. It was a lovely day with boccie ball, lawn darts and croquette organized, plenty of interesting people to chat with and an amazing display of food all in a picturesque setting.

Very civilized indeed…wine, croquet, good food and I’m sure lots of laughter. Thank you for sharing.

Lots of laughter for sure. The acreage is only a 45 minute drive from the city and such a lovely spot.

These lovely pictures prove you had a wonderful summer. The gardens are stunning, the food mouthwatering and the sun of summer smirks because soon it will be gone. Ah. Still. Awesome memories for another year. ❤

It is always nice to enjoy the summer with friends. This year has been very special and we have made some great memories.

Glad to hear you’ve made wonderful memories. Here’s to many, many more. 🙂

You’ve such a knack of finding the extraordinary in ordinary places and events!

Thanks Cheryl & Paul. Every day is extraordinary!

I am delighted to see that you are enjoying a glass of wine…That always helps!

Summer and wine just go together don’t they.

Thanks Holly. When the sun shines, we try to make the most of it!

What lovely pictures of friendship, food and beautiful scenery.

What more can one ask?

Isn’t summer wonderful to share these good times with friends. the owl in the tree may me chuckle. 🙂

I love that owl too. This is what I just love about summer; getting together with friends, enjoying good food, beverages and conversation.

Wonderful photographs of a lovely summer, thank you for sharing them Darlene.

You would just love some of the gardens around here Barbara. Glad you enjoyed the photos.

That restaurant and your friends’ space all look so warm and relaxing. I love dining beside a river. Glad you are having an excellent summer!

It has been a fabulous summer and eating outside is always a pleasure for me. Especially by water! Thanks for stopping by.

You had a busy summer–great wrap up!

It was busy but fun busy. Thanks!
