Hello from Sunday night
We’re back from a glorious weekend at the cabin. I’ve just downloaded hundreds of photos…typical, lol…and have had time to only go thru Saturday.
So here’s what our Saturday looked like:
We arrived quite late Friday evening and stayed up to see the first star.
Evenings at the cabin are magical. Nights are either black and stars or light and minimal stars. We had a light night. We saw a couple of satellites fly overhead, off to bed we went and slept for a very long time.
Mornings at the cabin, and a pot of water warming on the stove, Chloe wakes up in a place she’s known her whole life.
That little teddy bear is Nanny Bear, her first teddy given to her by her great grandmother when she was born. There is a hand painted pillow and an orange “Moshi” pillow, both gifts from her childhood best friends Megan and Becky.
Breakfast at the cabin. I don’t know why, but food always tastes better here.
Then, off to a lake for the rest of the day.
Oh my goodness, look what we have here! It’s the rainbow city of the Birkenhead Lake fairies.
Late afternoon and time to head back down to the cabin.
But first a walk in one of the high meadows.
We came away with a little bouquet of wildflowers and a treasure of wild strawberries.
I don’t know what it is about me but I tend to trip over four leaf clovers. I think that maybe in the war I could have made a good code breaker because I see irregularities and patterns very easily. Anyway, I must stop picking them because the pages in the cabin books are pretty full of pressed four leaf clovers. 😀
I love to have a puzzle going at the cabin. This lovely 1000 piece puzzle was loads of fun.
There we are Saturday evening and time for bed. Boy this day went by quickly. Were not ready to go home.

What stunning photos ???? It looks like a magical place to spend the weekend! And I love the shot of your sketchbook ????
Wow, and you know I actually feel really relaxed now just from seeing your day and reading about it… Thank you, beautiful memory filled day 🙂 mx
I enjoyed seeing all these photos of your visit to the cabin. What a beautiful spot! Your perspective from an artistic point is so interesting in that you find beauty in the common things around you and in nature. Have a beautiful week!
What a great place for a weekend getaway. The views of the lake and mountains are lovely. Your images are gorgeous! Have a great day and new week ahead!
Gorgeous shots. Your cabin looks a wonderful place to get-a-way. Just the idea of being able to see the stars … what a treat! I’m with you … I always thought when we went camping that the food tasted better over an open flame. Marvelous post. Happy Monday. Hope you have a grand week.
Looks like you had a perfectly magical time. I really enjoyed the photos!
Veronica, The water looks cold. The wild strawberries are a treasure! Looks like it was a great weekend. Sylvia D.
What a wonderful get away spot.

That place is a little piece of heaven on earth and your photos do it justice; lovely! Hey I have that book too : )
Oh what a lovely collection of photos. I just love the one of you gazing out the window. I’m sure you have had some fabulous times here. Isn’t it funny how food can taste different in other places … that’s because this is very special to you!

Your time at the cabin is bliss doing all that our souls long to do! Fabulous photos….
Very nice….solitude, old fashioned cooking and lots of fresh air. Seems like the perfect place for a person to let their hair down so to speak. Great getaway photos Veronica, thanks for sharing at Mosaic Monday.

Oh I am so glad I stumbled by you at Mosaic Monday tonight (Wednesday night here in Australia). It has been lovely to “meet” you and go with you to the cabin. It looks like such a wonderful place to visit. I would never want to leave. Wonderful images. Thank you so much for sharing with us.
Hello my new Australian friend. 😀 Thank you for stopping by and leaving me your addy. Now I can come visit you. 😀
i think you may need to buy yourself a paddle board so you can go out with C … and then of course you know R will want one too
I know! I know! We were just talking about that…lol.
What a beautiful and magical place! I wouldn’t want to leave either!
It’s true Kelly. There’s a little sadness each time I have to go back to the city. What does that say about my life?
What breathtaking photos……I love going to the cabin with you…..you make us feel like we are right there with you. Such a idyllic get away.
