|Just before sunrise|
Nine of us came from far and wide to gather around the table to celebrate what would be the last weekend this year at our haven on the lake.
|Among the pines|
It was a particularly warm day with temperatures around the high teens but despite that we had the wood stove on to provide atmosphere for our meal, besides there is nothing like the feeling of comfort, warmth and relaxation around the wood fire. Of course, our little campfire outside provided a little more excitement after our meal. Let's just say we expended two fire extinguishers and it was not a test.

Here are some shots of the lake, the view from little knoll behind our cottage and the cottage itself. We will miss the lake. We were able to stay more than two months this year and when I retire, which will be quite soon, we will spend even more time among those beautiful pines.
