Winter Lake Picture

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….

  1. I found your site doing a search for winter water shut downs (last November) and bookmarked it. We bought a cottage last summer and we’re ‘newbies’ when it comes to a lot of things. You cover a lot of interesting topics and I like the way you write. Just wanted to say I like your site and keep up the good work. I clicked on a few of your Google ads… all the best.

  2. Gregm, you are too kind, I appreciate your comments. Perhaps one of the most uplifting comments I have recieved. Feel free to contact me if you have any cottage questions that I can help with.

  3. This is a wonderful picture. We still have snow on the ground by our cabin – the lake is just starting to break.

  4. We are still suffering from some snow as well around our place, and when it isn’t snowing, it’s raining…not good for cottagers….

  5. Hi Rob,

    You’re very welcome and I’m happy to hear my comment pumped you up a bit about your site. I see you’ve been spurred into action over the weekend. :)

    I own/edit a motorsports magazine and maintain an active blog. We get about 1,000 visitors a day and I always appreciate when someone takes a minute to leave a comment.

    I’ll print off a copy of your “Hooking up the Cottage Water Pump” post for when I have to do this for the first time, hopefully in late April.

    As our family is in the ‘baby steps’ of becoming cottagers, it’s amazing how many of your posts touch on topics that we’ve discussed. Even the one tonight about property lines… we’ve only found three of four ‘corners’ on our property and the ones we have seen are little more than wooden spikes that could be easily moved.

    All the best,
