love this - does really look blustery - but also crisp and clear.

I still can't get over how big these lakes are!!

Cheers

Nice pic! But what is that structure on the beach and the hose next to it leading into the water?

HENRY KISOR said...

That's a crib constructed of stone and logs. It was intended by its builders (in the 1940s) to protect the shoreline. Actually all it does is cause the sand to pile up on the west when the wind is from the east, and vice versa.

That hose no longer exists. It brought water from the lake to the Writer's Lair for plumbing (not drinking) use. But now we have city water from the main that parallels the highway south of the cabin.

The big version of this photo is terrific. May I download it for my desktop?

Edie, sure. Just click on the photo to get a larger version and drag it to your desktop (if you have a Mac; I forget how Windoze does it).
