Fishing Trip - We're Back!
We're back from our fishing trip in the woods of north - eastern Ontario. This has been an amazing and wonderful week! After flying to International Falls, Minnesota on Thursday, we spent Friday driving to Woman River Fly In Camp in Ear Falls, Ontario. Saturday morning we were flown into the wilderness in a little plane that landed on the lake and dropped us off at a cabin, leaving us with no electricity, phone, TV, radio, or other such annoyances until we were picked up a week later.
The days were spent fishing, and I figured out pretty quickly that you just can't manage a fishing rod, a rocking boat, gusty winds, and a sketchbook all at the same time. Well, at least not successfully. I tried to take a little bit of time every day, though, to draw something from the cabin. The little rocky point (above) was one of my favorite morning views, as were the boats by the docks. . .
We had propane for lights at night and for hot water, and a solar powered pump that brought water into the cabin from the lake. The one thing we did not have was indoor plumbing. . .
The OTHER little house in the big woods. (The outhouse, also known as The Waldorf...) Can I let this count as the EDM weekly challenge for "architecture"?
