Today On Donnell Pond

This morning we decided to pack a picnic lunch and explore a nearby lake we had never been to before.



This makes Henri smile.




There is very little development on this lake because it is designated as Maine public reserved land.




The lake was like glass today.


It was so quiet here. (Except for the sound of our boat engine of course.)


This scene kind of reminds me of an alligator.





We pulled up to a sand beach to enjoy our picnic.





We had the place to ourselves.







It was a little like we were on a deserted island.








Even the woods behind our picnic table were magical.





Maine, the way life should be.

What a treasure to still have such undeveloped surroundings ~ absolutely stunning and oh so peaceful.
I do love the reflection of the sky, clouds, and hills in the water. Have a wonderful weekend ~ Rebecca
