We arrived super late the night before (such a late start that morning!), so we all slept in a little and ended up enjoying a lazy Sunday at Lake Bonaparte--meaning, sitting on the dock swishing our feet in the water, a boat ride around the lake, reading in a beach chair, and simply breathing in the warm Adirondack air and relaxing.
Fernando and I drove up with Joseph, and Jake was able to get a week off work. Jake's girlfriend Allie came with us, too!
Jake and Allie relaxed on the dock.

On our afternoon pontoon boat ride around the lake, we sat back and enjoyed seeing the familiar sights, plus some new ones--new houses being built, or new docks put in. Boating along at a slow pace is the way to go! At one point, Joseph quietly piped up, "Bird." No one paid attention, so he said it just a little bit more loudly, "Bird." We looked around, and saw a loon. Closer than one has ever been to the boat. That was no mere bird! I was able to take a few pictures; these are the best I've ever taken!
Look at its red eye!
Here's what greeted us when we arrived back at the dock. What a way to relax on a Sunday afternoon!
It was a hot day, so we ended up swimming off the end of the dock to cool off; it felt great.

My nightly lake ritual of watching the sunset commenced with a beauty that would be one of the prettiest of the week.
Beautiful end to a warm, relaxing day.
