Father's Day With Mother

My mother will be 91 soon and didn't remember going to Devil's Lake before. I think she'll remember this day, it was a good one.

Sadie and her dad who is going to fry

Good Boy!



You paddle, I'll watch



I was very close to jumping in

    1. I wish every dog was mine, but I'm only a pet sitter, waah. This is a great spot for a hot pooch that loves water.

    1. It was nice for both of us, Ida. This guy, Gunner, was just going along with his mom, dad, and dog sister. I'm not sure how much German Shepherds like to swim.

  3. Our family had a German Shepherd years ago and she loved to swim. Our daughter has a big black lab and she swims with us now.

    1. She did? I didn't know they cared about the water. One of my friends grew up on the lake and her Shepherd would go for a swim now and again, but acted like, meh. Ha, ha, I guess I'm used to labs.

  8. Those are some dynamite pictures! Wow, I could almost feel the coolness of the beautiful blue water. I've never seen blue water in person, but I will... some day.... I will. Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. Devils Lake is one of the few lakes I'll swim in any more and except for the occasional swimmer's itch warning, pretty sweet, Marie. I think the best lakes r still way up north though.

  9. Hi, thanks for sharing your happy moments! Thanks also for your visit and comment. Bricks cannot bow themselves, but a brickwall can. The use of wall anchors is an old way of securing floors so that they can't fall down. Now builders use other ways to prevent walls from breaking.
    I am not familiar with these building methods.
    Have a great week.

    1. Hi RW, so putting them in a wall is what causes the bow and those cool anchor braces prevent that...That is very cool and interesting, that's for letting me know about the old process. You have a great week, too, Wil.

    1. It's got a few go-to spots no matter how crowded and a warm summer Father's Day is going to be packed. But I agree, Tamar.

    1. Well it was mostly driving since my mother has a hard time getting around and enjoys sitting in the car and AC listening to Frank Sinatra, Sanchita. But I do love getting out and about taking photos. Dogs, water, and photography, the trifecta.

    1. Ha, ha, I remember putting that on a story freshman year in college. The professor was not amused.

    1. It is despite the crowd, Deborah. People have a tendency to be so happy I've never had any real issues, especially away from the main parking lots and beaches.

  15. Looks like a great lake to play in.

    1. I love that there are nothing but a few trolling motors allowed, Shadow. It's mostly kayaks. I take my raft and pack water and snacks.

    1. Since I'm close tho Hwy 12 it makes it pretty tempting to stop by a few times a year at least. Have u been in the fall, breathtaking.

    1. She gets pretty antsy and this seems to be the best medicine, Zippi. She's actually a contributor to this blog.

    1. Thanks, Colleen. I was thinking it looked like a long journey after a 40 minute ride and knee cramps.

    1. I would have if I didn't have my mom chilling in the car listening to Frank Sinatra. This is one of my fav swimming holes, only from the other side of the lake.

  24. Gunnar was just along for the ride. That's what happens when your dog brother is a golden retriever and there's water.

    1. It would have been more fun if I'd got to spend it all outside rather than in the car, NF.
