Starting June on the Lake

So, we have been traveling back and forth up the lake. Claude is working hard to make our "big" island house liveable. We demolished the kitchen and Claude lifted the house to level it. All big stuff. And I planted a few seeds to see what might come up. And one day Claude did some digging in our front "yard" that is our front lake yard in the cove to clean up some trash. We have endured some stormy and windy weather, and managed to go back and forth to the marina a couple of times against very strong winds. And now, the mountains have greened fully and you can see only green when you look out at the mountains surrounding Lake Winnipesaukee.

Our favorite times are when we break for a meal out on the lake and enjoy our good food and the sun and a swim and maybe a nap. We feel very lucky to share this unique paradise.

So, even though mostly the lake has been our life these past weeks but also I had a poetry reading (my last for the season) in Plymouth, and I have been swimming in Walden pond even in the cold weather, although now that the life guards are back and they have installed the ropes, it's not quite the same.

Oh, and I have been picking the few veggies coming up in my own home garden.


Here are some of my latest photos.
