Congratulations Jeremy and Matthew for finding Charlie.

Their mom came up with a great clue....How much wood could a woodchuck chuck....although it is a duck. Can you figure out where he is?

Trip to the Porcupine Mts

On Wednesday we took a trip up to the Porcupine Mts and then headed over to Bond Falls. It was a beautiful day, sunny, a nice breeze (so no bugs) and temperature around 70. I couldn’t have asked for better hiking weather.  Porcupine Mountain State Park is an easy 1 1/2 hour drive from the resort and located on Lake Superior. It’s a great day trip. We also drove over to Bond Falls which is about a 45 minute drive from the resort and is one of the prettiest waterfalls in the UP of Michigan.

Our good friends Denny and Riva joined us for the day. Lake of the Clouds is behind us.

Manabezho Falls on the Presque Isle River flows into Lake Superior.

Bond Falls is gorgeous this year with all the rain we have had.

Perfect view to end a great day!

Fish stories told here!

A productive day for fishing.

Joel caught this nice musky on Irving Lake, the 3rd lake in our chain of 3 lakes.

Kevin is testament that you don't even have to get into a boat to catch a fish. He caught this northern pike standing on the dock.

The last picnic of 2010

It’s always sad to have the last picnic of the season. even with all the great rain we had this year it only rained on the picnic once all summer. Thanks to the rec building, even on that day we didn’t have to cancel. 60 people at the picnic today, new guests along with returning guests made for a great mixture of people!

 We had the best corn of the season today. Yum! 11 more months before we can have it again. So sad!  Next week we switch over to coffee hour with homemade coffee cake.

The sun was trying to peek out and finally made it at the end of the picnic. So the warmth of the grill felt good.

Making new friends!

That's a plate full of brats!

It rained and it rained and it rained!

Friday it rained all day. We got 5 1/2 inches. It was wonderful. The lake and the creek are at the highest levels in years. The sound of the creek flowing over the rocks is music to your ears. Wish I had gotten a picture of the campfire pit, it had water all the way to the boards around the edge. Determined guest had a fire built Saturday night after bailing out the water!

This is the most water we have seen in a long time flowing under the bridge!

It rained and it rained and it rained! 2010-08-21T13:51:43+00:00

Another great day for a Picnic

It was a cool day, so the fire felt good.

Our large kettle comes in handy for cooking the corn.

Sarah thought the play box made a great place to play! Great hug from brother Evan.

Another great day for a picnic!
