The actual view from the porch...


Mornings this time of year often provide amazing colors here on the lake, as the soft, gold-tinted light of dawn comes over the ridge behind the house, leaving the near shore of the lake in shadow and lighting up the far bank. Add a touch of mist for that "soft focus" look, and you're almost expecting an elven ship to glide by.

It's usually a bass boat, though, with Elroy instead of Elrond.

A vision like that would have me up early with coffee and cigs just about every day!

Wow.
I half expect to see The Lady Of The Lake emerge holding Excalibur. Beautiful and inspiring.

Careful now, you might get Uwe Boll out there scouting locations.

But if so, You Know What To Do.

Just as well, those Scientologists are creepy.

Lovely view! My house looks over a golf course, and as interesting as golfers can be, I'd much rather have a view like yours.

We only have a pond... I'd be on the lookout for a scurvy sloop helmed by Bartholomew Roberts or Wiliam Dampier.

Oh my.... That is splitting the arrow in retarded snarkiness. First time I've been brought to tears of laughter in a long long time. Thank you both.

Nice place.

I have the same view out my backyard which is why they will have to take me kicking and screaming from this place.

6am: coffee, a marlboro, and two loons catching breakfast is just something I can't live without.
