Each year we spend a few wonderful weeks up at a lake in the northern part of the Adirondacks. Its a place to get away, and a place to relax.
We were up over the holiday this past weekend for our annual closing of camp. Our little cabin on the lake is a summer house with no insulation which means we only spend warm weather months there.
So in the winter we board it up and wait for next year. I'm always sad when we go up to close, but we had an absolutely glorious day on Saturday and enjoyed every last minute out on the porch until the sun set.
By Sunday morning the rains had set in as we got busy with all the various tasks it takes to close up the camp. We did get out for a couple of great pictures before the rain. We had a nice showing of the local birds. My older daughter got a shot of the mergansers sitting on the end of the neighbors dock. And we heard lots of loon calls, which are my absolute favorite.
The girls got a last look at the lake before the cold sets in and the lake completely freezes over for winter. So, until next year...
