Good Day. Thanks for checking back with this blog. As you may have guessed I’ve been on vacation. My intent was to blog every day from the Resort as it was advertised “WiFi available under the section describing the cabins. What they didn’t tell you is the WiFi is only available at the lodge (some distance from our cabin) and the three or four cabins that are close enough to the lodge to rob the signal.
It was an interesting week being without the internet. I never watched one minute of television, or listened to any radio, and only occasionally checked my work e-mail via my cell phone (which had limited coverage at best.)
The above image was taken by Kyle, the resort owner on our last day. Angie, Ben, and Joshua joined Jeanne, Mark and me for a week at Leech Lake near Walker Minnesota, located near Horseshoe Bay. Leech Lake is on an Indian Reservation and is the 3rd largest lake in Minnesota.
The above “snapshot” is of the gang at the last rest stop before the camp. Joshua needed a break and something to eat and we all needed a stretch. The images (of the diner) I posted a week ago Saturday were from Rogers, Minnesota (just north of Minneapolis) where we spent Friday night.
June is one of the best fishing months of the summer at Leech Lake and the weather is usually pretty good for the month. Of course not this year with all the wacky weather this year I can tell you we had some interesting weather for the week which, I will blog about as this week unfolds.
I shot nearly 1,000 images for the week. So I will have a lot to show you over the coming days. Many are just touristy snapshots (not really worthy of being called an image.) Lots of shots of Joshua and some really cool images that I’m very proud of.
This image is for Steve Kent. I promised him a picture of our boat as soon as we arrived. But with no WiFi I couldn’t do that. It was a 19 foot Lund with a 150 hp Honda engine. It had GPS, two live wells, could seat 9, and had a weather cover. That’s the good news. The bad news is that it was an old boat, with an old GPS system and the steering system was so loose that you could turn the wheel almost a full turn before the motor would respond accordingly. It made for some interesting times in rough water and trying to land the boat at the dock.
No camera setting information for this post as these are just hurried snap shots but will have some of the more interesting images later and I will post the settings for them. I hope you will follow the blog this week because I do have some fun stories to tell and some great images to share.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your week and be careful.
