down on the dock

After the busyness and joy of Jonathan and Erika’s rehearsal dinner and wedding, the newlyweds jetted off to Ireland.  The rest of us drove to a cabin on Lake of the Woods, where we spent a few days together enjoying the richness of fall and the closeness of family.  The time for Elliott, Lena, and me to be in the States was coming to an end, and these days with Elliott’s family were quiet and sweet.
One afternoon I picked up my camera and captured the events of a few hours: Lena out on the dock with her Aunt Eden and me, watching her Uncle David kayak, eventually getting into a kayak with her dad, being distracted by a Daddy-Long-Legs, and later “swimming” in the lake (although she had more fun snuggling in a towel on the dock).

    Those last days of the visit back home are so bittersweet. I find myself wanting to drink up every last minute with my family.

      You said it so well. I’m especially feeling that way now that I’m back home in Sicily today!
