Gone Fishin' and One Blog Recommendation

Sorry folks but since I'm away at the cottage, there's no POTW this week - just one fine blog recommendation.

hammock
This week, I've been spending my time relaxing in this.

Fishing for these. (Walleye photo credit to Frank)

And enjoying a lot of that.




And you can be sure that Benny is having blast doing lots of this (for those of you who read via email, you'll have to come to the blog to see the video).

If you want to see some fine photos, head over to Frank's brand new photography blog Canon Fodder. You won't be sorry. Of course, he'll be away from blogging for the same time period that I will, but I'm sure he'll have lots of new shots to share with you shortly after we return.

I have more scheduled posts coming up. One as soon as tomorrow!

It looks a wonderful place.

Enjoy yourselves. Your lake is so private compared to ours. Reminds me of Minnesota lakes where I grew up. But, we take what we can get.

Have a grand time.

Much as I love your lake views, I think the hammock is my favorite this time 'round - it's the lines and shadows that intrigue me.

I watched the video once...and listened again while gazing at the photo of the lake...seeing the calm water at twilight and hearing the splashes is magical!

the last shot with two chairs is awesome...

With all of the time you guys spend away, have you considered getting a 3G USB card? Not that you want to spend a lot of cottage time on the puter, but it could come in handy. Cuppa has one for her new used iPad.

Jillsy Girl said...

Thanks Bennie for the morning chuckle!! :-)

Have fun guys!

Elizabeth Grimes said...

***Relaxing sigh*** Jealous!!! :)

signing up for the duration - give a good man a good lens...

Pauline said...

Well now, look where that comment showed up - it was meant for Frank's new blog! I used to be tech savvy...


Thanks for steering me in the new blog's direction. Have a relaxing week!

DJan said...

Have a great time, Hilary! I know Benny won't need any encouragement to have fun. I'll head over to Frank's now.

Very nice...

So in those chairs at the end of the dock! Jumping over to Frank's place.

ellen abbott said...

I'd linger there as long as I could.

Snappy Di said...

Like a duck to water that Benny boy is! Love your dog.

Di
Enjoy your vacay/time away!!

Susan in the Boonies said...

That fish shot is cool! Good on Frank!

ladyfi said...

Enjoy your time at the cottage. We're renting one this year and enjoying our time there too.

Linda said...

The fish picture really shows Frank's priorities. There was enough of you showing in the image to tell that you were smiling and posing for the photo, but Frank was taking a picture of a fish...not of you holding a fish. :) Thanks for the referral to his new blog. He's got some great captures there.

Karen said...

Awww, have fun. And I love anything with Benny!

Country Girl said...

Oh, I know you're enjoying yourself, Hilary. How wonderful. Love the photos and the video was fun.

Wendy said...

Ahhhh, summertime! Doggies swimming in the lake, huge fish and chairs by the water - all relaxing and fun activities.
Enjoy the cottage.
Hugs

Can I borrow your hammock while you're not there? Love the photos (always, of that lake). Benny is a breed unto himself: Jack Russell Retriever!
Have a wonderful time.

Nice! Enjoy!

Linda said...

Your photos always make me feel like I am right there seeing what you are seeing. Love the video of Benny!
