And We Arrived at our Destination.....Black Lake/Log Cabins/ Hammond, NY

 And on Monday, Memorial Day, we left the Quality Inn, in Dunmore, PA for the last leg of our trip.  Since our route would take us less than 5 minutes from my brother David's house in Kirkwood, NY, we had made plans to stop by on our way to to the cabin.  I had not seen my brother in a couple of years, so this was an absolutely great visit.  Like me - we are both aging, but to me he looked great.  We didn't stay for a long time, but Rich & I had a very very nice visit with him and his dog, Jake!   Rich took a picture of me and Dave (below)....... I LOVE IT!  Dave is very much into photography, especially outdoor sceens, winter and summer, and I think his favorite is "water falls'!  All the pictures on the wall were taken by him.  Dave is coming up to the Lake  and spending a day or so with us...Looking forward to his visit. 

We had less than a 2 hour drive to get to the cabin, and we arrived about 2:00 in the afternoon.  Got checked in and started the unpacking! (UGH!).   Rich's back was really bothering it was really a good thing the it was much to windy to head out fishing.  We ordered a pizza from the store about 1/2 mile up the road and settled in for the day.  The cabin is not real big, but plenty big enough for the two of us.  The kitchen is well stocked.....There is also a second bedroom, with two single beds.  The livingroom has nothing more than what you see.  Two recliners, heat/airconditioner, small stand and a very nice wide screen TV!  What we like the best is the huge front porch with picnic table.  That's where we spend most of the time.  And we have the grill right out in front of the house.  Severa places where we can have a campfire, if we want.    


Tuesday, the weather was no accomodating at all, so we still did not get a chance to get out fishing. But both Wednesday and Thursday we were able to get out in the evening.  Caught a few small fish, and a good number of crappie - but not all were keepers.  I (Donna) have the lead with fish count.  I'm ahead by THREE!
Beautiful view of the lake from our cabin. 

And today I was able to get a picture of the Geese..........There are so many of them, that hand around the camp and along the shore, in front of the cabin. 

Wind is supposed to die down around six o'clock tonight...........So maybe we can get back out there.  A little chilly up here right now - but the forecast says it's going to get up in the 80's in a few days.
