Nine years ago, almost to the day, we were making our first visit to the cabin for the year, and Squiddy was back with us from New Zealand for a couple of weeks. We only stayed up there for two days, making sure that all was secure after the winter, that no trees had fallen and caused any damage, and that no critters had found their way into the cabin. We were happy to see that everything was in order, and on our drive back to town for dinner and our motel at the end of our first day, we stopped to watch the sun set over our lake from a spot near the main stream that feeds into it at its east end. It was a lovely, calm evening to welcome us back to what will always be one of our favorite spots on this earth.

Great capture of the evening atmosphere over the lake!
Thanks, Peter, it surely was a beautiful evening!
Just beautiful, Gary. I can imagine soaking up that calming atmosphere, feeling at peace with nature.
I remember that there was complete silence, as the red-winged blackbirds and Canada geese had yet to arrive.
Its good to have favourite spots on this Earth, very worthwhile; brings a lot of calm and satisfaction, and senses of being and knowing.
You are so right. This little spot in the north woods has been a haven of well-being for me since CD first introduced me to it, some 50 years ago. It will forever have a special place in my heart.
Way to go! Very simply, way to go!!! :)
I can feel the relaxation from here, I really can. :-)
It was real, and we all felt its warm embrace.
That’s a lovely spot and, I am guessing it is she, Squiddy capturing it for posterity. Twilight away from the sights and sounds of civilization is peace.
Yup, right you are, and Squiddy it is. And the golden light of twilight, combined with serene seclusion, has real magical power.
