Johnston Lake - Adventure Wednesday July 30th, 2014

Relaxing Day At Johnston Lake

This weeks Adventure Wednesday didn't go as planned. A few days ago we decided to hike up Ha Ling Peak (Chinaman's Peak). I was really excited the last couple of days and especially this morning. I was looking forward to finish work and get out for my weekly Adventure. Unfortunately the weather changed completely - even though we still had 32degrees, it was very foggy and got a bit dark out. Not a good sign to climb a mountain. We also had a long day at work and decided to go hiking on another day. ... I still wanted to do something on Adventure Wednesday and was happy when Dan had the idea to go to the Johnston Lake. Well relaxing on a hot day sounded good to me :)

Here are some photos of this weeks Adventure Wednesday!

Nope we won't move! LOL

Look who we ran into on our way to Johnston Lake. They really didn't move at all! Sweet photo though. Protective family.

Dan having fun in the water!
It was still very hot when we got to Johnston Lake even though it doesn't look like it in this picture. I had a great time. Do you know how hard it is to do NOTHING at all? I usually keep myself busy at home with painting, reading or outside with running, hiking, biking etc. ... BUT I must say I really enjoyed sitting at the Lake and just listen to my surroundings. I loved watching the waves in the water. I really needed this break - to just be!

Yes yes, I really did go! :) I've never really been to Johnston Lake. It's really lovely there. Hope I am able to go again very soon.

We got back to the car right before the Thunder and Lightning started. Wow last week Wednesday a big Thunderstorm and this week another one. Must be Adventure Wednesday :D

After Thunder and Lightning - Beautiful sunset back at the Hotel
A lovely and very hot day comes to an end. One last thing - Adventure Wednesday without you isn't the same. Miss you girl (You know who you are) Hope to see you soon. We need to go biking and rollerblading along Legacy Trail soon :)

Wishing everyone a fantastic week! Will be back here next week Wednesday :)
