A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of spending the weekend at one of our friend’s cabins in northern Minnesota on lovely Rabbit Lake. Minnesota, land of over 10,000 lakes, is known for its cabin life, a common way many lucky Minnesotans spend their summers. Many cabins are passed down from generation to generation while some are being torn down and rebuilt into obnoxious “McMansions” on some of the larger, more popular lakes. Our friends were fortunate to find a “fixer-uper” on a nice-sized low occupancy lake awash with loons, birds and a mini island for exploration. I couldn’t think of a better place to spend my summer days!
Kayaking was great fun. There were lots of interesting parts of the lake to explore, especially a secret mini island where loons and other birds nest.
Like a diamond, we saw the lone white lilly and paddled over for a closer look.
Later that day, Paul and I went exploring a small waterway that finally opened up at the end of the lake. There had been massive rain and flooding allowing us to enter a once off-limits canal.
As the sun began to set, the melodic cry of the loons echoed across the silent lake. It was time to stoke up the fire, roast some s’mores and enjoy the last bit of light.
Sounds like a wonderful trip!
