Scenes from the old country, summer 2018

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.

July and August on the lake

High water level on the shoreline

Three years of progressively higher lake levels, and the tag alder vegetation is falling over into the lake.

A bridge over a creek at the back of the property

The creek, long virtually stagnant

The cove just behind the point, and a deer fence round the property

A path through the woods

Back across the little bridge

The end of the point

Kristin's cottage and others

A Melvin in the Box

Some Interiors

The 'study' and . . .

. . . the master bedroom

The kitchen

The living and dining room

The study

The parade of geese

Back to the canal

Cousin Rob through the culvert

Any trees not already fallen down are trying to.

We're back to check the spillway at the end of the canal into the next lake over.

Basically, will it hold? Can it be adjusted without falling to bits?

Back the way we've come

Patroling for the invasive Purple Loosestrife (and for edible mushrooms)

Racing the clouds for the north end of the lake, before the storm breaks (it didn't)

Around the shore in the northern bay

The end of the day

Hydrobikes stowed

Another day, another (almost) daily hydrobike ride

In the southern bays, a Loosestrife patrol

A curious passersby

The dreaded Purple Loosestrife -- once everywhere on the lake, now, with some vigilance, mostly under control

Rob tears up the Loosestrife, mercilessly

Shoreline patrol in the southern bay, 3½ km from the north end of the lake

Got another one. Merciless.
