Having waited all summer for our awning, at last it was installed this morning. What a difference this is going to make to our patio. It is fully motorized and works really well


Fishing on Bear Lake


After our ride this morning, just as we were leaving Bear Lake, up the hill came this penny farthing, going great guns. Only had time to shoot with my M9 so June got off a shot with the M9 as well


Started our ride this morning at the Carston Centre where users of the trail can park. Seeing this cab there was somewhat unusual. Usual camera, M9

Met Don and Gloria this morning at Panera's for breakfast. Parked our car at the Carsten Centre for our bike ride. We met Don and Gloria on the bike trail. He is 84 and rides 15 to 20 miles every day. They both have a great sense of humour and are a delight to be with.


Back at Mountain View again this morning for our picnic breakfast


Beautiful morning being enjoyed by this mama duck and her ducklings on Bear Lake. Even this fisherman seemed so relaxed that we were half expecting him to fall overboard.
