Silver Creek...

One of my favorite places to spend time is near the water 
 where I can hear it running down the creek.

This week I was lucky to have that opportunity, while
 also sharing the time with my daughter and granddaughters. 
It was cool and comfortable along Silver Creek on a hot summer day.

It's also a perfect opportunity to do some sketching and painting.

Lily found a good place to sit and sketch.

Being such a dry summer this year,
 I was able to find a place to set up in the creek
 where it would normally be all under water.

This was not our first time to spend an afternoon cooling off creekside this summer.
Here's some pictures taken in the same location several weeks ago in June.

I love this sketch that Lily did that day of me while I was painting.
She caught me in action before I took my hat off.
