LAST DAYS OF SUMMER - 8 X 14
Oh, this was the September to be camping!! We have just got back from our last trip of the season and it was the best!! The weather was fabulous, often 30 during the day, the scenery was wonderful, and the fishing was great! What more could you ask? My husband, Steve was busy each day arranging the tackle, getting worms and charging the electric motor and I was painting. There was a surprising number of people camped at the lake with us so lots of company and stories and of course theories on fishing – Best Practices were the tale of the day. The days just whizzed by, can’t believe we are home already.
SUMMER SUNSHINE - 4.5 X 6
Davis Lake is in the mountains, just south of Merritt. It is just at the point where the forests are turning into the dry grasslands. The landscape is so different from the coast, short pine and firs, lots of birch and poplar and huge areas of grassland. Of course the fall colours were starting to show and on those sunny days everything just took on new life. I know my photos and sketches just do not do it justice.
The trees and grasslands were beautiful
