The Perfect Steak

The sun was almost setting as she and I landed our kayaks. The day wasn’t over of course. The kayaks needed unloading, and put way up on the lawn. Being stranded at the cabin watching the way home floating away in the distance would spoil the entire weekend.

Next thing to do, dinner. Soon the charcoal was ready for our steaks. After a day paddling dinner was more than welcome. The aroma of broiled steaks over the charcoal was heavenly, and the taste of perfectly cooked meat was a perfect ending to the day.

As the sun set behind us we settled beside the Clay Chiminea, keeping us warm as the moon rose over the lake. It was time to open some wine and have that first sip of wine at dusk, That’s when The Lady Of The Lake and I began to relax for a well-earned rest.

Each week a photo is used, donated by one of the participants of Sunday Photo Fiction, and the idea is to write a story with the photo as a prompt in around 200 words. Fiction from Photos

    Lovely sense of outdoor adventure. Although, The Lady of the Lake sounds ominous to me, maybe I’m just being paranoid…! Nice writing.

    Mm, that does sound like the perfect steak — after a long day outdoors, settling in with a little wine and a fire and a friendly soul. Sounds great to me!

    BTW, the link you posted at SPF isn’t working; I had to search for you the long way around.

  3. Sounds like a perfect match!
