I know it’s time to start thinking Spring at the cottage, and winter pictures are kind of behind us now, but I wanted to show you one that I came across today that is a great picture of a cottage lake in winter.
One of the best things about living in the northern part of the world is the change of seasons, and the effect that has on nature. This picture for instance, the lake and the snow, reminds us of the cold winter. But the darkness of the ice, and the water breaking through in the background, says that spring is near, it’s soon going to be “ice-out!’ as we call it.
Soon the cottages will be alive again, fires will be lit in the stoves, and boats will get hauled out and geared up. Around my lake, fishing will be on the minds of most everyone, especially in the early part of the season, when the trout bite best.
I’ve got my cottage list ready, and each weekend brings me a little closer to that first overnight trip of the year. It’s a good time to be alive….
