Sunday, we were invited  by friends, Dick and Shirley, to their summer home on Fremont Lake.  There were four couples that got together and enjoyed a lovely summer afternoon.

We went for a nice pontoon boat ride.  The lake was mildly busy...mostly pontoon boats and jet skis.
A mama and daddy swan hung close to their dock with little baby.  They were so sweet!
Here's Dick and Shirley tending to the pork tenderloins on the grill.
What a great spread!  We had pork tenderloin, brats, cheesy potatoes, boiled shrimp, calico beans, salad, fresh Michigan sweet corn, feta/tomato bruschetta,  fresh fruit,  and homemade blueberry pie and brownies for dessert.WOW!
Dick and Shirley completed the house last summer.  It is so lovely.  I could live there in a New York minute.
It's decorated in teal, white, cocoa browns and neutral.  Everywhere you turn in the house, it emits style and taste.  For example, her bowl of fruit above, sitting on the dining room table.

On the way home, we stopped and picked up a dozen ears of fresh corn.  Yum...nothing better than fresh picked corn from a roadside farmer still on the wagon.

Can you believe it's August 1st already.  Summer is slipping away!

  1. Yum, I love the fruit bowl! Can you find out where we can find some?

    Isn't it fun to enjoy a pleasant day with friends?

    I am ready for some "Fremont area" sweet corn too. I think it is some of the best around.
