It's seems to be getting stronger every year. As soon as the ice starts to break I begin to hear it. It's the 'Call of the Island'. That amazing feeling that you just have to get out there to experience the awakening of nature and the spirit of the island. I paddled out a few times in the spring by myself just to check on everything and got lost in the island's beauty. I absolutely love it.
Scott is of course back on the island as well helping me with some finishing touches to the cottage. We have so much fun every time we go out that the 12 hour work days just fly by and seem like more of a playtime. Even a disabled boat couldn't stop us as we adapted and started paddling the canoe back and forth. Never a dull moment. We are laying the maple flooring that I milled from the rough lumber that I bought several years ago. I thought it was going to be interesting looking but both Scott and I were blown away by its beauty. We had enough to do both bedrooms and definitely would like to continue it throughout the cottage eventually. I'll post some pictures in a bit.
Sandra and I are going up for the long weekend for our first overnight. I can't wait. It's feeling more and more like home. We might even try a test garden this year...can't wait.
We are looking forward to everyone who can visit us this year. We are always open for guests and can't wait to share our precious piece of paradise. See you at the lake!!!
