Lazy Afternoons

Hubby and I spent two afternoons on the river bank.

This is the week of the Missouri River 340
One hundred-fifty canoe/kayak paddlers
race from Kansas City, Missouri to St. Charles, Missouri - 
they'll travel 340 miles from start to finish.

This is the check-in station here at 
the Jefferson City Carl Noren Access 
across The River from our State Capitol.

We were invited to join our friends Leisa and Steve to spend the afternoon along side the Missouri River.  
Mother Nature provided wonderful weather - 
except for last night's rain/lightening storm. 
A few of the canoeists were caught on The River during the downpour.

However, we enjoyed
Two Glorious Autumn Afternoons!

All that fresh air made for a lazy end to the day

and Max The Puppy is the master of the art of napping.

  1. BEAUTIFUL pictures, Gerry! I miss Missouri and the Missouri river. One of our favorite hiking trails was along the top of the bluffs on the river near Defiance. (Lewis and Clark Trail)

    Happy for you that you got to have such nice days by the river with your hubby and good friends (and puppy!).

  2. Oh Gerry, it looks like you have had a wonderful couple of days. It's so beautiful there...and the weather looked glorious. However, the water looks cold...perhaps it's just because I know it's Fall!
    And Max the puppy is soooo cute!



  3. What a beautiful way to spend a few autumn days! The river looks so inviting. Did you canoe? And who does Max the puppy belong to? He is one cute dog! xx

  4. Great pictures of the Big Muddy.

  5. Gerry,

    Your pictures are beautiful! You must have a great camera. I feel like I could reach out and touch the water.

  6. Great pics. Joe and I were at this exact spot last week at the end of the bike ride. Glad you enjoyed the days outdoors (and I bet you did some knitting too) From Annie Mouse (aka anonymous aka Dianna
