One Beautiful North Carolina Evening

Saturday afternoon, very much in need of some R-and-R, Rebekah and I accepted the kind invitation of friends to enjoy dinner and a boat ride around the lake where they live.

The day was warm for late November and the lake shone luminescent in the gentle afternoon light. Best of all was the fresh air and the good company. It is a great gift to be around people in whose presence it is easy to relax.

I will let the photographs speak for themselves. I know I have said this before, but we live in a beautiful community in a spectacular state – and we are graced with the blessing of so many generous friends.

Peace to you all – DEREK
