It is fun, but it is also my most relaxing place to be. We spend lots of time here in the summer. Even in the cold weather, it's beautiful. To start here are a couple of sunrise pics that I snapped when I took Lucy out first thing in the morning.
We collected firewood on our morning walk so we could build a fire in the firebowl and hopefully roast hot dogs and marshmallows for lunch.
Lucy collected pine cones on the walk.
It was too windy, but we did get the marshmallow roasting in (priorities...). The previous/original owner put in this long concrete sidewalk sort of thing next to the rip-rap, so we call it the boardwalk. It's perfect for the firebowl.
Lucy hung out while we built the fire.
Here's another pic of the boardwalk, dock, water.
Another pic around the side of the house. Lots of room for Lucy to run around and chance tennis balls, lumber, sticks, and pine cones.
And a pic of the house. Last year when we were there for Spring Break, we were having cocktails out on the deck and all of a sudden there were hundreds of ladybugs swarming all over the rails. We figured they must have been hibernating in the deck rails. It was amazing to see. Wasn't that warm this time. But the kids spent plenty of time on the swings. The hammock gets pulled out in warmer weather.
We also took a fun nature hike that I'll post on later. This one is long enough for now...
