Playground soaks up alot of stain

Now that the kids are back in school, the long process of staining the playground has begun. Several gallons of stain was used for the first coat.

Talk about working in tight quarters 🙂

Rainbow tonight

I was standing at my kitchen sink tonight and looked and saw a rainbow. Grabbed the camera and headed out. It stretched from the north bay over Hideaway and beyond. The fisherman who came in from the other side of the lake said the sunset was gorgeous. They will share their pictures with me tomorrow. I’ll post them when  I get them.

The Eagle wants the bait!

We have four fisherman up here this week musky fishing using live suckers. The eagle has been watching them the whole time and has even tried going after their suckers. the eagle actually got a hold of one of the suckers while on the line. Ed has cuts in his hands where he tried grabbing the fishing line. The eagle gave up, but kept watching them closely. Ed got great pictures of the eagle watching them!

The bobbers the suckers were on.

It rained and rained and rained

I meant to blog this yesterday, but the power had a mind of its own. Hard to turn the computer on with no electricity.  We had another big rainfall on Thursday, a total of 4 1/2 inches. That brings our season total to 30 inches! WOW! Nothing like going from drought to lots of rain. It’s been wonderful. It’s so nice seeing the creek flowing again. And with all the water the flowage is a great place to canoe once again.  I took a stroll yesterday morning to see what all the rain had to bring us. Enjoy the pictures.

The fire pit wouldn't be able to have a fire today!

The boat landing dock is getting close to being under water.

We have our own mini waterfall going in the creek this fall.

The water was moving rapidly in the spill way into the flowage.

Northwoods Wildlife Center says THANKS!

All summer long we have been collecting northern pike to bring to the Northwoods Wildlife Center in Minocqua. They use the fish to feed the eagles they are rehabilitating. We ask our guests to keep any northerns they catch and put them in the freezer. Today I brought in over 40 northerns, of various sizes, to the center. They were very appreciative! So thank you to all our fisherman who caught the northerns and took the time to put them in the freezer in the fish cleaning house. The eagles thank you!

Beautiful Fall morning

I came down this morning to open the office and looked out on the lake and there was a beautiful mist hovering over the water. Thought I would share it with you.

The colors are just starting across the lake.

The island clouded in the early morning mist.

The maple tree by Hillcrest is always the first to turn in the fall.

Fall blowing fun!

Kaja and Karolina, our twin sisters from Poland, who have worked here all summer wanted to try the blowers before they leave for home. They had fun and want to do it again!
