My husband makes the best blueberry pancakes ever on the wood stove in the cook camp which is pictured below that. This "kitchen" has propane lights, two fridges and a new stove. I can just smell the fresh perked coffee and I'm still thinking about the pancakes!
The next shot is of the screened off porch of the sleep camp overlooking the lake on the top of a big hill. The log building below that is for storage. You can see the that behind the cook camp, we have a water tank which gets water pumped up from the lake and with a propane hot water tank, we still have the conveniences of a home kitchen.
Next, my husband is shown here taking our canoe down to the water. He's an avid canoeist and has done many white water trips, although not with this wooden one!
The last shot is of the sun streaming through the forest on the leased property.
I love the simplicity of this place and wish I could somehow siphon a little to infuse into my daily life. I guess that's why we take pictures. In the dead of the blustery winter or during some hectic times throughout the year, I shall let my mind sink into the scenery of these images and hopefully, drink in the peacefulness as the feelings of craziness, desolation, or drudgery dissipate.
