A beautiful blue sky got everyone out early, and before the clock showed 9am we were backing out of the driveway.
The drive out to Ethel Lake would be a short one - 15 minutes at the most.
The higher temperatures of the last days had brought out spring-green leaves with many trees along the road.
We were all looking forward to spend the day at the lake.

immediately took off to the waters edge, while we adults started putting out chairs and a table.
We did ball games and were baking sand-cakes on the beach.

The afternoon went by with more games, a walk and just sitting in the sun enjoying the beautiful scenery.
