A Peaceful Day on the Lake

This year Kathy's annual family reunion was in Toledo, Ohio, so we took the opportunity to visit my family in Ashland first. One of the highlights of our too-short visit was the wonderful morning and afternoon we spent with my good friends from high school, Thorne and Linda. They took us out for a delightful cruise on their pontoon boat.

Here was the view from where I was sitting as we set off on our voyage.

Here's our grandson, Aidan, helping the Skipper steer his boat!

Linda in the bow of the boat. Aidan steering. There was a heron in the background but somehow it didn't show up in this picture.

It's not in this picture either, although that's what Jimmy is photographing.

Here's Aunt Hannah with her newest nephew, Jack.

At lunchtime, we found shade near a small island and had a tasty and refreshing lunch prepared by Linda in the onboard galley.

Here we are saying goodbye after a wonderful cruise. The weather was beautiful. The lake was calm, and the company was delightful. Thank you, Thorne and Linda, for this fantastic highlight of our Ohio trip.
