I hope to in the near future, show you what the Cottage looked like in 1945, and share with you the changes that have taken place over the proceeding years, up to what it looks like today. There has ben alot of changes that have taken place up there, and alot of memories to share, as well. I have spent the majority of my life, and my summer vacations there. I have found that Cottage life is not for everyone. You have to really enjoy peace, quiet, and total solitude. And you have to have a love for nature, as it is abundent there.
It is over an hours drive in either direction from the cottage, to larger cities if shopping malls, theatres, or fine dining out is your pleasure. Otherwise it is the small town 5 miles out from the cottage which has an IGA, or two smaller family run grocery stores, a beer store, a couple of church's, two garages, and a couple of small family run restaurants, if that is to your liking. There is nothing like a couple of black bass filets on the BBQ, or cooked on the stove. And you have to create your own social calendar, as we have no Television; and either fishing, boating, swimming, reading, taking hikes or walks, and or playing cards, is the usual activity at hand.
And there is nothing like sitting down at the dock, overlooking the lake with a coffee in hand, either watching the sun rise, and the sounds of nature aound you coming to life, in the early morning, as daylight ascends upon you; or watching the sun set in the evening as darkness approaches, and the peaceful quiet of total solitude sets in for the nite. It is so quiet up there at nite, you can honestly hear a pin drop. And black as the ace of spades. And the sky just lites up with all the stars, and if a full moon is out, does shed a bit of lite on the subject.
So, I do hope you enjoy the Cottage life I am about to share with you, and hopefully enjoy your visit with me. I will put an extra filet on the BBQ for you.
