We can view these properties from the lake, on a boat, or we can walk the back roads and get a different view.
The sky and earth were bathed in pastel hues.
The apples will be ready for picking in a few weeks.
There is a pretty little lagoon on the north side of the Deep Bay parking lot which many people miss.
Here we rested a bit as we waited for the sunset.
Just when I needed a bit of interest in my photo, a convenient sail boat slipped into the scene.
A dry and dusty field just needs a bit of barbed wire to make it even more resistible.
Without irrigation, this would be sage brush and thistle.
Back on our property, a hardy Hollyhock whose predecessors were planted by my mother-in-law many years ago.
Our last morning. I could not sleep well and when the light started seeping into the room at daybreak, I peaked through the blinds and was up like a shot, camera in hand. The geese were coming in for a landing and the sun was straining to break above the mountain ridge.

But the geese stopped their flight to take in the beauty.
I took photos for the next hour as the light kept changing and the sunbeams kept moving through the sky. It was the last morning and a great send off . See the photos in 'Large' to appreciate God's artistry.
