Old fashioned fireman's muster

on Saturday at Salem Willows

I love going to these events

and there is another one in my home town in a few weeks!

We had an impromptu family gathering

and some of us jumped off the wharf

first trip of the season

to the quarries

jumped the almost highest jump!

we breakfast at the wharf

strawberry frosted donuts

and Dunkies coffee

Queen Anne's Lace lining the pathways

along the wooded paths



Flower Friday

  3. This makes me think of a song from my childhood that said, "Simple pleasures are the best..." What sweet simple pleasures your week contained!

  4. That's nice to have such a family gathering !

  5. Loved your photos, especially the Queen Anne's lace. Looking at it, I felt transported back to my girl scout days when we walked the paths in the woods and observed nature.

  7. Sounds like a great summertime week...that walking photo is wonderful.

  8. Lovely post. The simple life ...the good life, you have it all. Beautiful summer day!

  9. I've never attended a foreman's muster although several of my friends were fireman. They always had a great time.

    Love queen Anne's lace. How awesome that it is so abundant in your area.

    Wharf jumping? Sounds fun and COLD!

  10. I love your family adventures--all close to home and so simple.

  11. Simple pleasures of summer!
