More lakeside fun in the Northwoods

Parties on the lake, and the Isle of "Adjidaumo"

You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go.

We're up early today, to catch the morning sun for once.

Storm damage. Not really -- it just fell down of its own free will at 5 a.m.

Same house, a different party

The lake again, with six islands, a bit over 3km from the northern end to the highway bridge in the south.

This is the northernmost island, which has an eagles' nest on it, though this summer all the eagles seem to be congregating round the north end of the lake.

We've been told that the island is, or was, called Adjidaumo (from the talking squirrel in Longfellow's Hiawatha).

Wait here.

We're looking for the eagles' nest.

The eagles' nest from one side. No eagles around, though. (Probably patroling the north end of the lake.)

Vestiges of a cabin that was briefly occupied here in the nineteenth century. There are entertaining family tales about it, in fact.

The nest from the other side.

Back down to the shore, and . . .

. . . a stop-in to visit the neighbors on the shore.
