A Day at the Lake

Ready for a day at Trillium Lake on Mt. Hood with family.
This is one of my most favorite things to do even when it is cloudy.
It was cool in the morning; so tea was the perfect thing to warm us.
We sat and drank Keemun Mao Fang from Floating Leaves in Seattle.
Tim, Renze, Annette, Mark, Jim, and myself enjoyed the Saturday together.
For fun we took bubbles and spent some time chasing bubbles.

Food was shared. We enjoyed fruit, chicken curry sandwiches, egg salad sandwiches, hummus, feta, olives, and pita bread; plus apple oatmeal cookies with more tea.

The day finally cleared enough to see Mt. Hood. What a majestic sight.

Always a perfect day, especially when there are special friends to share it with.

A beautiful, beautiful day. I think Trillium Lake is the most PERFECT name! Your food looks beautiful and yummy, your tea kettle welcoming.

Thank you for sharing!

Wow - that peek of Mt. Hood took my breath away! Love your camp kettle, too.

What a gorgeous picture of Mt. Hood! The kind of weather where a jacket or sweater feels just right is for me. Your day looks like such fun and the food must have tasted like Heaven.
