Wordless Wednesday is Now Worded, Because you Asked

This picture was taken with my cheap little cell phone. The first time I saw this location I fell in love with it! It is such a special place. Last September, Jerry's Uncle Bob passed away. This picture is at the home of his daughter and son in law. They live in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley. This is their private lake. Uncle Bob's memorial service was held next to this lake, under an Oak tree that has to be over 100 years old. It is huge! Their home sits up on a hill to the right of the lake, above rows and rows of wine grapes. The lake has many items set just so all around it's perimeter. Examples are little row boats on the shore just waiting for someone to jump in for a ride. There is a small dock that has a ladder out at the end, easily accessible for jumping in and getting out of the water. Tom and Debbie are very blessed to live in such a beautiful place. Wouldn't I just love to have a small little bungalow off to the left of the lake. There is a perfect spot to tuck it in between two small hills, a stones throw from the lake. Sitting quietly, at this beautiful location, sure made this girl's mind wander!
