outside: pedaling the lake

We woke up early this morning and headed out into the fog to a local lake to do some exploring.

Pedaling around the lake consumed the bulk of our time.  I'm not sure what it is about kids and pedal boats, but they sure love them.

Finn's legs were a bit too short to reach the pedals, so he sat in the middle of the boat and worked the rudder, which meant we wove this way and that all over the lake.

The lake was beautiful in the early morning mist.

The ducks were friendly and swam right near the boats.

until Elizabeth and Paulie chased them...

But mostly we just pedaled around enjoying the quiet, the still of the morning, feeling the mist on our faces and the sun rising on this last day of July.  And we breathed the outdoors.

If you have any outdoor adventures to share, please feel free to link up below.  I'll be sharing our outdoor adventures all week in this space to celebrate our virtual book club's reading of Last Child in the Woods.

  1. LOVE these photos! You'll have to zap me an email and tell me exactly where this is so we have another place to explore when we're in town.


I love to hear what you think!
