July 30, 2010: Boats and Visitors

Have not updated in quite awhile - been quite busy with lots of visitors! We always enjoy family and friends staying with us. Took the parents to Trout Lake on a beautiful sunny day:

In other exciting news, we now have a boat! Our boss Dennis was so kind to give us a great deal on the boat he was selling - we love it! Vic is a great driver! It's docked on Trout right now. Before we park it in the garage for the winter, I'm dying to get over to Bluewater Lake, which is appropriately named for it's stunning color. There are no public accesses to this lake, so only small boats like ours can sneak in via Wabana Lake.

Captain Vic
Looks like he's been boating on Minnesotan lakes forever.
Hard to believe he's a former New Yorker!

Moose - we couldn't resist!

We've also been spending lots of time with our fun friends up here - cruising around with Dennis and Robin, or Joe and Sara, or Pokegama sunsets with Mat and Heather.

Upcoming Northern fun: Tomorrow we are going to Lake Itasca for some hiking - it's the headwaters of the Mississippi. Then next weekend we are going to a book signing for Mary Shideler - a woman who made it her goal to kayak all the lakes here in Itasca County... there are 1007!
