Calm. Soothing. Relaxed. Cerulean. (what a great word... both in meaning and in pronunciation)
Instead - I went with what this last weekend was overall... Relaxing. I'd been needing some time away so the hubs and I spent the weekend (nicest one yet!) at my family's cabin on American Lake. Just across the lake from home and yet I felt a million miles away. We were so close to home we could watch our home from the dock all weekend... But at the cabin - it's like you traveled back in time. No phone. (except cells)... no cable... no internet... It is a BEA-U-TIFUL thing!!
Perhaps you wonder why in the world there would be a large silver pot out on the dock... Again, I didn't manipulate this shot - I thought the reflections were fantastic when I saw it sitting there and I couldn't pass up the photo op/self portrait. The pot was there because it's always good to have ammunition available should an impromptu water fight ensue and we don't happen to have any super soakers.... yet.
