Our dear neighbor, Alina, took us to a nearby lake today. She wanted to take us last week and it just didn't work out. Soooo, because of our being here one more week, it all worked out! Praise the Lord! We had such a great time together and I was able to talk with her more than I ever have before. The children played and Dave took a walk. It was such a delightful morning. God is good!
There were sheep just 2 feet in front of us as we arrived at the lake. They are all herded by sheep dogs! The surrounding countryside was just beautiful!
Ashlyn had such fun getting in the water. It was nice and warm. Her dress got a little wet, but she had a great time! The water is so clear. The two lakes in this area are from a volcano (LOL!) and so the sand is different and heavier. I imagine that is why the lake is so clear... all the dirt stays at the bottom.
Daniel and Addie found something to climb on, of course. In the summer time, this place is very crowded. They have all kinds of games to play - volleyball, soccer, paddleboats and such. Today it was just us and the beautiful scenery.
The children all loved playing in the sand and building a lake of there own, complete with a dam. They also tried to build a waterfall ... not sure how that all worked out. They had a great time though.
By noon, it was time to go home. It was getting to be warm and we were hungry. The climb back up was a long one and it was a good thing we left when we did. There's a good reason these people take a reposo (rest) in the afternoon!
I am so glad we had this opportunity. Thank you God!
