It didn’t take Charlie long to move a couple of times on his first day of hiding.
Our son, Brian and his girlfriend Missy were up visiting for a couple of days. They love to take the canoe out and fish area lakes. They shared some of the wildlife photos they took while fishing, along with some of the fishing success they had.
What a wonderful sight the high water is! It has been at least 10 years since we have seen the flowage with so much water in it. the wildlife is enjoying it. There are ducks, geese, cranes and fish everywhere this spring enjoying the wetlands. We were hoping the beaver would work on the beaver dam and they did. If the rain continues to fall in a normal pattern this year the flowage should be canoe-able all summer.
We were honored today to have our first large wedding on the property. Close to 100 family and guests enjoyed themselves on our property. The day started out gloomy and rainy, but a few minutes before the 4PM ceremony the sun started shining through the clouds. I took some pre-wedding photos. the area near the barn and the fish hatchery made for a great backdrop for the wedding. The wedding photography said she would share some of her photos with us. When I get them I’ll post them for you to enjoy.
The day the docks go in always gets me excited for the start of another season of vacationing! It makes the resort look complete. It was balmy 55 degrees outside…..far better than Monday’s morning temperature of 19 degrees! The guys were happy that it had warmed up as the water was still a little chilly since the ice just left the lake a week ago.
On another blustery morning (yes, there were snowflakes in the air) the 17th annual Journey’s Marathon begins at White Birch Village. We are honored to host the starting line for the full marathon. Be sure to check out our Facebook page for some video clips.
Charlie decided that his adventure wasn’t over yet. After falling through the ice, and before we could get a boat in the water to retrieve him, he decided to go floating around the lake. It proves that the life jackets work! Charlie, chair and all, enjoyed a romp floating around the lake before John retrieved him this morning. He ended up over in the north bay.
