Last of the Lake

Time to wrap up vacation memories. The lake was lovely, the little 60+ year old cottages winsome and cozy, the company unsurpassed. But autumn is almost upon me, and it’s time to turn thoughts to apples mellow, pumpkins yellow. Blessings on these little homes and my daughter-in-law’s wonderful family who share them and all the lake toys, big and small, that go with them.SONY DSC

These little ones had magical poles. They caught a bright yellow fish EVERY SINGLE TIME

Except for the time Uncle was going to demonstrate casting, and caught a pine tree

The absolute coolest swing ever created

The hammock was a big hit. Once you got used to it.

Discussing life, and bait.

How to raise a delinquent: let him gamble while eating pizza. How to delay delinquency: don’t give him any coins to insert.

I adore this kitchen. Maybe not to cook Thanksgiving dinner in, (but worth a try).

Full disclosure. We didn’t stay in the little cabin this year, but in the bigger “Big Cabin” next door. This is a photo from when we did stay there. This table and chair almost make me swoon.

Till next time. Goodbye, little cabins.
