The weather was perfect. The skies opened up with large drops of rain just after we unloaded the car and got settled inside our friends, Patti and Gerard's, cabin. About an hour later... here comes the sun!
Patti is "the entertainer". I'd have to say her style is simple elegance. She always makes things look so easy when she entertains. Everything that can be done ahead of time, is. Nobody would guess all of the work that goes on behind the scene... but I know... and appreciate the relaxed atmosphere.
|Dining at the Lake of the Ozarks - Patti style!|
|A Spanish dish of rice and seafood. Its official name escapes me - but it was oh so good!|
|A moonlit boat ride. Terrible photo. What can I say...|
|Breakfast of Baked French Toast and sausage links - once again overlooking the lake.|
The french toast recipe can be found here. It is a Pioneer Woman recipe and we all know every one of her recipes are the best ever! Plus, it as easy to make!
|You see everything on the Lake. Not a care in the world.|
|The lake boating activity by mid-morning was mind boggling. It was a much bumpier boat ride than the previous evening's late night cruise.|
|Maybe sail boats are more stable than they look. Personally I cannot imagine sailing on such choppy waters.|
|This little wood duck joined us as we basked in the sun. Life is good!|
