Birthday Boat Ride

Above: Sadie (the marina mascot) supervises the celebratory boat ride.

This last week I celebrated another year on the planet. I haven’t had the energy for much but ambled to the creek to watch the trout in the fast disappearing tributary.¬† I also grabbed Shadow and took a hike up Grout Creek.

Later, Fawn Harbor kept me amused and I spent much to much time¬† watching carp–a sign that the water is warming up nicely.

I also prepared to ambush Captain John for a celebratory birthday boat ride. Of course, he obliged me and we took a short jaunt out to China Island. He and his crew have been fixing up the place and I am excited to see it getting some TLC.

China Island was built in the early 1900s and is still privately owned.

Originally, my plans were to kayak but it was a bit too cold–once it warms up a little you can bet that I will be heading out onto the lake in a kayak.

Anyway, HM is taking me out of town for post birthday celebratory activities–I’ll blog more when I get back.

    Lovely photos! Thank you for sharing them with your readers.

    Question: What statue is that on the rock? Is it facing Fawnskin or the opposite direction?

    A belated “Happy Birthday!” to you! Keep up your good work.

    I believe John said it is a Buddha but it looked more like a monk to me. We are heading back out there again soon and I hope to get a snap when the sun is on the other side. And yes, it does look out toward Fawnskin. The area has been turned into a little wading pool and is about six feet deep.
