Arriving at the cottage

When we approach the cottage we slow down and do a little bit of maneuvering to get lined up at our island dock. I must admit my heart does a bit of a pit-a-pat when we get near, I love this view of the island and the cottage.  Maybe it is not because of the look of this spot but more the memories it evokes.
See that white building? That is the cottage peaking out from the trees.
 There is  Ol' Blue.. our old boat taking up one spot on our dock. You can see Bob's flag and flag pole by the dock and the ladder coming down from the dock when we can climb down for a little swim or to catch crayfish. The huge rock out front of the cottage is a pretty amazing feature too.  There are enough levels and layers that it is easy to climb down to the water and when you reach the water you realize there are more layers hidden under the surface just right for wading.
You can see the shore line behind the dock wrap over to a rock wall that is part of the reason our dock is in such a nice calm tiny little harbour.  You can see sensational views of the lake from the top of that rocky out cropping.
This is the point of our trip to the lake when I have a sense of coming home.

Poplar Bay Camp Shore

This is taken right beside our mainland dock. The owners of the campground maintain a boat launch right there, a dock for people arriving by boat at the campground and a little beach area for the campers. There is a small red building with running water which is the filet house.


Sea Grass Placemats

I have a real weakness for dishes. I got a small set of  non-breakable green dishes at the hardware store last year and we use them on the porch, especially when there are only two or three of us dining. I got a few sea grass placemats from IKEA and needed to place with them. The kitchen pass-through is nice to sit at for an evening snack or occasionally  a breakfast for two.








The water plants grow under the water in the cooler days of early summer and then as summer months pass by, they send out tall stocks with a few flowers.
The reflections of the leaves in the still water are beautiful.
