Well time is fast running out if I want an entry in this week's SMT on Sassy Cheryls Blog. The bad thing is that I've had the pictures since Saturday, but just didn't get her to create my post.

This past weekend we had a Yoga Retreat at the Camp House. I started doing Yoga back in October, and I have to say that I love it. Our yoga instructor has been wonderful, and sadly she's quitting at the studio where I go for my class. At any rate we planned a yoga retreat for last weekend. It was supposed to be 6 of us for Friday through Sunday. It turned out to be Friday and Saturday with just 4, but we still had a great time.

The yoga instructor is in her 30's, so very young. The other two ladies are closer to me in age. I'll just say in their 50s and leave it at that. Friday night we talked until the wee hours of Saturday morning. On Saturday, I took them kayaking. It was the first time for Sylvia and Becky, but not for Kate, the instructor. Doesn't it look like they're doing synchronized paddling?

The water hyacinths are in full bloom. They're beautiful flowers, but they're parasites and completely take over, not to mention being impossible to paddle through.

We finished off Saturday afternoon with a great yoga session. Can I just say Ommmmmm and Namaste!


  1. Oh. . . .I have never seen a more darling photo of you Shirley! You look so relaxed and dare I say sweet. :) I have to tell you, I love living near the city b/c of all of the conveniences, but seeing these photos makes me long to be back in the country. So much peace and quiet and just really enjoying life. I LOVE IT!
