I was back at the family house on the lake this weekend - the second weekend in a row -
and the fall color seemed to be at its peak.
The morning light lit up the trees and the water.
This is the only time of year that diamonds appear to floating on the surface of the lake,
and it can be mesmerizing.
The leaves from the surrounding trees float by, just under the surface of the water,
and they, too, reflect the sun's rays.
We sat in the sun for much of the afternoon, enjoying the warmth and the peacefulness. The lake was quiet, without the summer noise of boats and jet skis - though our neighbor in the cove brought out his jet ski just to charge the battery. His constant companion always insists on going along for the ride.
As the sun set we enjoyed wine and candlelight on the porch.
Later we watched as the planes lifted off from the airport across the lake.
This place feeds my soul, especially at this time of year.
Do you have a place that feeds your soul?
