See, I'm not just about sailing. Here's the big old bear in my canoe. Way way in the distance you can just make out the While Mountains, (behind my head) The Whites are just about due south of where I am. Yeah, I'm that far north.
Pretty here, isn't it?
We had two of my canoes out on the lake and one of my daughters brought her kayak.
I can't believe my lovely wife and I only have one more week before heading south for the winter. All the critical projects have been completed. If I don't get to the rest, we can still head out. That's a good feeling.
The weather's been rather pleasant for the fall. The long range forecast for the next weeks looks pretty good. October is a funny month here in the north. Anyone remember “Snowtober?” The weather can turn from pleasant and mild to winter.
When it turns cold, it can get brutally cold. In previous years I've seen fishing shacks on the ice as early as the end of November. This year I'll have no idea, nor interest on when the lake freezes over. What will concern me is when it opens up again in the spring. The average ice out date is around the third week of April. That's when we plan on being home again.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
