Welcome back Katie! What a delightful setting to vacation at. I bet the water is that super clean because it's so cold no one dangles their feet into it!

Oh, and I'm personally goofing off. Again. I'm really good at that! But I better get off DC and go do more work in the basement. I swept it all out yesterday; Himself just came up and said "wow, is the basement clean!" Wonder what his reaction will be when I actually DO clean it!

I've finally finished cropping and editing the 65 pictures we took. I somehow managed to miss packing our good camera and ended up having to use the one in my cell phone. It took surprisingly good photos. I'll share a few here.

The first one is the lakeside of my aunt and uncle's log home. Fabulous house. We hated to leave.

The second one is what they see from the big windows. The lake is pristine and only a few feet from the house. They have a gorgeous sandy path about 100 feet long that leads to the water.

The last one is of the water. What you're viewing is a portion of the water about 2- to 3-feet deep near the dock. It's as clear as drinking water. Unbelievable.
Gorgeous. Being MN born and bred, curious which lake this was...sounds like Cass. The pictures have me longing for Lake of the Woods. Can't afford another trip to MN right now.

No, not Cass Lake. It's Perch Lake and, as you see in the photo, just beautiful. Can't wait to get back.

I loved the clear water. If I hadn't seen it myself I would never have believed it. As for being in it, yes. Lots of swimming, water skiing, jet skiing, etc. A real pleasure.

Well don't stand over him and make him nervous, lol.
BTW, you filled the propane bottle, right?

I just got back from grocery shopping. The more the afternoon went on, the less I felt like having nachos for dinner.
