Summer's Last Marathon Swim

everybody IN!!!
The last organized Marathon swim of the summer... with FIFTEEN people tackling the swim to the point and back (one km.) It was, despite being overcast, a lovely lovely morning to be out on the lake. Or in it. The water was 73 degrees F (we use a very very old traditional thermometer at the lake ) There's a lot of 'young adults' here this week -- after lunch, they are all off on a Paintball adventure! thanks everyone, all summer, who have helped make all our Marathon swims pure magic. Here's some photos from the occasion!

that means you, too, Tom :)











That's Rob, waving...

Harvest after the Rain!

Bounty! David found a puffball mushroom that sprang up after the rain. These are absolutely delicious... lightly sauteed, Megan says, with lots of butter, a touch of onion, and a splash of white wine... We're going for dinner...

Thanks for Being Part of Our Family! Here's to the Next TWENTY years!

Here is to celebrating the NEXT twenty... !!! Megan and David made a presentation to our guests, Tom, Leslie, Brynne and Blair, who have been vacationing with us for TWENTY years this summer. You truly are part of our family and we look forward to your visit every year!  

Even in the Rain, We Compete




For our last cookout get-together, the heavens opened... we had a spectacular thunderstorm all afternoon, and when the thunder stopped, the rain didn't. Luckily, we have the big rec barn, and we moved the fun indoors.  No bonfire, sadly, but no way we could miss the spitting contest!
A little monsoon-like downpour couldn't dampen the cookout -- although it did postpone the Star Search and Wolf Howl to tonight... We moved into our big recreation barn and just carried on. (even if a bit damp!) Our seed spitters were keen as ever, and special kudos to the folks who stood in the rain and helped to measure the distance!

Sails in the Evening Light

Sailing away... Tom has been getting a lot of 'good wind' for sailing this week. Lovely to see the sails against the evening sky!
