My World Tuesday - At the lake

View of the lake

Monday we took our second trip with the grandsons to Greenbrier State Park for a picnic lunch, swimming and generally enjoying the outdoors. Greenbrier is about 30 minutes from home and was a favorite spot for Marianne and the boys' Dad when he was their age. The park also has a kayaks, paddle boats, bath facilities, and miles of trails, including a portion of the Appalachian Trail. (Second and third image taken on July 27, the others taken July 22.) For some more shots around the lake, see Marianne's post and my post last October.

Lovely lake. Sounds like a really fun place to be in and so close to boot.

happy tuesday lew.
i have to say i enjoy the lake environment a tad more than the ocean...simply because there is no salt to deal with in the water :)
beautiful lake and you are fortunate not to be too far from it.
have a wonderful day.

Looks like a nifty outing. Reminds me of family gatherings when I was young ;--)
