Lovely Fall Day at Leadmine Lake Raleigh, NC

Happy Weekend all.
"What is Madi Thinking" will return next week.
We have lots of drafts waiting to post.
It has been such a dreary, rainy, windy week here in Raleigh.
Mom decided to post these lovely pictures in hopes of encouraging the sun to return.
They were taken last Saturday on Mom's walk just a few blocks from our house.

We miss you Sun please return.

I'm not sure what constitutes a 'lake'. It is more like a pond

Lake or pond it is quite lovely this time of year
It is not on Mom's regular walking route but she often
takes a detour. She wishes there was a trail around.
There are home around the entire lake.


  1. What a lovefurly pondy lake! And, we hopes you all ahve a great weekend too. Also, pleae come by on Tuesday to help celebrate Skeeter's 13th Purrday. we will be having furry kyute cupcakes and goodies for you to take with you!

  2. AMAZING shots :-)
    I can't send you sun (I wish I could )
    sorry its raining here !!!

    with SUN SUN :-)

  3. Those are great pictures - what a pretty place to go walking. We would send you some sun if we had any, but sadly we don't have it either.

  4. Beautiful photos! We are getting the last of the hurricane tonight! Only about 1 inch of rain. Hopefully not too bad!
    Have a nice weekend!

  5. Those are great pictures! Your mom has some nice scenery to see when she walks!

  6. Oh my what a lovely view!
    We have all been worried about your weather.
    Do you know we got nothing at all from "IDA".
    Except gray skies.
    We are glad it has gone past you.
    What a strange storm.

  7. what a pretty view of the lake/pond!!

    Hopefully the sun will return for you!!


  8. I wanted to pack away some sunshine and mail it to you, but it's been cloudy/ rainy here too. Hopefully Mr Sun will resume his 'job' soon!
    Happy Weekend!

  9. Yes. Lake or pond is beautiful!
    We still have lots of sun! I wish I could send you some of it!
    Kisses and hugs

  10. What a pretty place to walk! Wish I could send some of our lovely weather. Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. What a pretty tranquil place to be!
    Ah, I miss green so bad! Even if it's fading
    green, it still looks so pretty!

  12. I've often wondered that as well - lake vs. pond. I think if you live on it, you can call it a lake if you like.

    Great picture!

  13. How pretty! It must be really soothing to be able to walk near the water like that. We don't have anything like that in Napa!

  14. Hi Madi,
    Those are lovely pictures, we especially liked the colour reflections in the water!
    For some reason our mum likes reflections!
    You are lucky having such a pretty pond/lake so near to your home.
    We think you will need to get a lead and go for walks with your mom.
    Our mum's last basset Harry and her very old cat (23) Mouschi, used to go their last walk of the day together around the neighbourhood. In fact Mouschi walked with Petra (dog before Harry) before that!
    So you see cats do go out walking!
    Have a lovely weekend. We will look forward to more of your 'thinking' pics!!!
    love and kisses
    Martha & Bailey xxxx

  15. Awesome pictures!! Looks like the worse of the rain is past...hopefully you'll get some sun tomorrow!

    The Mama

  16. I want to sit here and look at that view for hours.


Please leave a meow or bark for Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
Life is short, spend it with those who make you laugh
