The lake house................

So where do you go to get away from it all when you're already in the armpit of the state?

To your personal cabin on the lake of course.

So this colouful monstrosity has been her on the upper lake of Conconully since the mid 1940's.

It's been kept in the family for several years obviously and will be for several more to come.

When the lake is full, the floating dock is a wee bit more useful than in the current photo.

BTW-this floating dock is 60' so that means the lake level is down about 6-10' currently.

Of course no trip to the cabin would be complete with out dropping the boat in the water.

We at least got it in the water this time around, but the prop got a little dinged coming in so the the pitch was off and we didn't get the speed it's capable of. Then we had a fuel's just not getting a continual flow. I sat in back and kept the pressure ball pumped up to ensure a quality ride up to the other end of the lake.

This shot is my dad driving and my son in back.

This is the view from the porch. There aren't really any words for this view. Just sit back and enjoy it. It's best at nite. No city lights, no street lights. No noise except for the light fluttery sounds of bats buzzing by on their way to find food under cover of nite.
