Last week I stopped and took these pictures. This place is right beside the road and if you step off that rock ...well..... as you see that would be the end of you! I didn't venture too close to the edge. This spot is about 1 1/2 miles from our house. That creek empties into the lake. It's quite a lovely view and the creek bends in both directions there.

In my last post I told about keeping my great niece on Monday since there was no school. On Valentine's Day, around dusky dark, I heard a knock at the door. My great niece was there with a box of candy, a box of cookies, and a single pink rose. She said it was from the family. She started down the sidewalk and she said, "I love you Aunt Rachel!" I told her that I loved her too. Gee, that was the perfect gift. My favorite is the rose of course and the fact that they thought about me and then her saying she loved me. Ah........

What a wonderful view that is. I bet in the early morning sunrise or at sunset, the reflection on the water is outstanding. Thanx for sharing.

That's nice of your aunt. It's nice to know that are still people in this world who know how to show their gratitude in the good you do. Anyway, the rose is sooooooo lovely.

That was SO sweet! Makes it all worth while, doesn't it?

You are so blessed to have such a beautiful place to retreat to. I love sitting next to creeks and rivers. Something about the sound of flowing water.

That is nice. My youngest helped the teacher clean up after the carnation sale so he could bring me home one.

Kids can be great!

Aww, how precious that your great niece told you that she loves you. You must have really shown her a great time while she was visiting. Those pictures are really pretty. I'll bet it's beautiful when the trees have leaves. Have a great weekend Rachel!

You must have done everything right. But then in her eyes you can't do anything wrong.
She said 'thank you' and 'I love you' in a very nice way.

Such a sweetheart! I could have loaned you a whirlwind of a puppy to entertain her, but she sounds like she had a wonderful time! Love the view down in to the creek. There's just something about streams in high places....
