For the past 17 years Tom and I have visited Squam Lake in New Hampshire with friends. This year those friends decided the summer trip should be to Swan Lake near Bigfork, Montana. I am grateful to the Bigfork Public Library for the wifi service - because I got nothing at the house on the lake. No cel signal, no TV signal - nada. Just a book, a beverage and some peace and quiet. Here are some photos and descriptions of the trip thus far.
This is Bounder the deer. I gave her white bread because the caretaker on the property showed me how to feed her. She is a wild deer, but very much protected on this property.
Planning to play croquet this evening. Wonder how I'll do with a margarita in one hand and a mallet in the other.
Eva Gates Homemade Preserves. I am told that Eva was the aunt of Evil Knievel. That's cool, but I must say she makes the best Huckleberry jam I ever tasted. (This is actually my first taste.)
