Home Again, Home Again!

I had a fabulous time on Clear Lake in Indiana! Curt, Cyle's dad... a.k.a. "Pam-Paw", as Cayden calls him, took us for a boat cruise around the lake. We saw spectacular homes... people lovingly called lake houses! Houses sit close together, but that's the way it's been for years, and people are long time friends! Families have owned these homes and pass them down, some are shared by siblings, some have only one family owner. Here is a neighbors house... and his PLANE!!
Many have beautiful stone work and stone walls around the front of the lots. The house next to this one is for sale... Nancy? Asking price $1 Million.
Think of the lovely evenings that could be spent relaxing on these chairs and watching the sunset!
All wonderfully beautiful sites to see ...

But my eyes were drawn to this...

A boy and his "Pam-Paw"

Driving the boat together.

Here is the Wilkinson lake house. Like I said before, this house is NEW... but the family has been on this piece of land for many, many, years. Curt spent summers here as a boy, his Grandfather being the owner then, and now he owns this family treasure.
My Bridget, Cayden and soon Mya, are lucky to have a fun haven to retreat too with family. Cayden will follow in his Daddy's footsteps and "run this lake" when he and his cousin Mason are bigger boys!! Look out!
Thanks for the fun weekend birthday celebration! I am thrilled to be a Cribbage Player now and can't wait to perfect my game and Beat You one day! ( We learned the game and even kept score on a board made by Cayden's Great, Great, Grandpa in 1916... carved his name and year right into it!)
Can't wait to visit again!
