Enjoying time at the Lake

Been a while, I know!!!  Had a bad week..........!!!   We left the family in Iowa, and started our trip to NY, stopping in Maume, Ohio, and then Batavia, NY before arriving at Black Lake.   It was Friday morning when we left Ohio, arriving at our hotel in Batavia late afternoon.  It was while unpacking that we realized we had left our small case will ALL of our medication back in Ohio.  No refills on the medication; we had enough with us to last three months! Doctor's office closed; called insurance company - bottom line had to wait until Monday for doctor to call in new prescriptions.  Thankfully insurance covered them, giving us an override for "lost/stolen" medications.    Tried to get the medications shipped to us FedEx.........but that's a VERY long story!!!

Anyway we arrived at the cottage on Saturday ...........and after finally getting our medication on Monday we were ready to settle in and relax!

Not hard to wake up every morning to this view from the cottage window. 

Our friends Gary and Karen arrived from Pennsylvania!

Been spending most of the time fishing at our favorite fishing spots.  This one behind Tin Island. 

This one behind Raspberry Island.....  People have been staying there, at this little cottage with the dock out front.  Been there for at least a week!

We were out fishing our first day............And here are the first two fish!!!  (  This will be the last Collage for a while.  Computer crashed.......... had to reset back to original settings.  As a result I lost all programs that I had downloaded.  Not a problem, except for Picasa - where I always downloaded and edited all my photos.  Picasa program has been retired, and is no longer available for support or download.....those who had it could still continue to use.....Oh well.  Have to find a new program!  That was so good..........and it was FREE!)

We've been able to get out most every day, but the days, while comfortable weather wise, have been very very windy!  Lots of rocking in the boat.  There was one day where the winds were 15+ mpr most of the Rich took advantage of the time off to make up a batch of potato candy!

And the sunsets have been beautiful...............most every night heading back to the cabin!

At the end of the first week, the fish count was not great!  Total caught was 56 with Donna in the lead 30 to 26.   Water here is very high, and quite weedy.......... No luck yet catching any big ones, but we've caught a good number of crappy that will provide a two or three good fish fry's for the two of us.
