Another beautiful day in Delaware

We woke up to another glorious day in Delaware, Ohio.  I could really get used to this kind of weather.  After a lunch of various yummy leftovers we headed to Alum Creek to go kayaking.  I took lots of pictures, I hope you enjoy them.

Here are Bill and  Tom getting the kayaks ready to launch.

Here’s  the gang once we got going.  What a beautiful spot to play in on this magnificent day.

All in all a great outdoor experience provided by Captain Tom.

After we got home, Tom went up to the store to get the dinner ingredients on his Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic.  It’s a beautiful bike and sounded just like the Harley’s that go by our house all summer…loud and rumbley.

I, on the other hand, spent some quiet time on the amazing screen porch.

It just doesn’t get any better than this.

When Tom was mowing his garden area this afternoon, he found this frog.

And transplanted it to his pond in the back yard.  What a lucky frog.

For dinner, Tom grilled pork tenderloin and Mary Beth  made green beans in the oven.  It was a superb meal.

After dinner we watched the Ohio State football game, a Saturday standard in this part of the country.  The Buckeyes won 50 to 28.

I’m really enjoying this retired life!

 

One thought on “Another beautiful day in Delaware”

  1. What a great day! It cracks me up how the words are pouring out of you now that you are retired…but I love it! Hopefully we will still have lovely weather for you by the time you get here to see us. It is supposed to be in the upper 90’s next week…not sure how I feel about that :(.
