A visit to the USA, summer 2013

More annual lakeside fun in the Northwoods


You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

Young William on the lake

William's just arrived all the way from Ottawa, had a bit of a lie-down, and now he's ready for Something New.

Will's being briefed on dock etiquette, as Zoë and her friend try to make bubbles.

William was here two years ago, but doesn't remember anything at all.

Motive power supplied by Mom and Dad -- all Will's got to do is navigate. The bubble makers are benefiting from the trial and error method.

Off they go.

Bubble making -- bringing in an expert

-- That's how it's done.

Feast of burgers

Lots of burgers, and hands with ketchup on

What can it be?

It must be good.

Alison's joined us from Virginia, and William gets a try-out in the kayak.

-- Wait, who's watching William?

His dad Dmitri has got it all handled.

All together now, and outward bound

And later, back to the dock

The next day, back to the dock, of course

William's a welcoming child, but still not entirely sure about Grandpa.
