Looking for stones

As a younger family, we occasionally enjoyed a trip to the North Shore of Lake Superior.
There is no better place than the shore of the Big Lake to look for interesting stones...

More pictures of the island cabin

Some more pictures of the island project we have been working on through the summer.
These, of course, were taken a few weeks ago during that nice stretch of Autumn we had this year.
I have since taken the boat out of the water and parked it for the winter.

It's a little bit different kind of a house than a lot of the homes and cabins that we have built over the years but it has interesting lines and a very unique setting.

The weather is different today.
This morning we had our first below zero temps.
We only have about 3" of snow but it certainly seems here to stay.
