Back in the saddle

I got my sewing machine back from the shop (she had her annual cleaning/checkup), and finally sewing again!  I am almost finished with this civil war reproduction quilt top :)  just a few more rows!

back from vacation

My family has 2 small rustic cabins on a lake in west/central BC - beautiful country and a wonderful quiet place to be.  Completely off-grid (no power or even running water).  Our cabins do have propane stoves and refrigerators though luckily.  Anyhow, I thought I'd share a few pics from our trip :)

Storm on the last night of our vacation

The beach in front of our cabins.  Our dog Lucy and my son's dog Tikka playing in the water.

Most of the trout we catch in the lake average 12-15'', but there are some big ones too.  The 3 on the left were mine, and hubby only got one that day :)

The meat is amazing on these trout - red like sockeye!

Me and hubby - we had just gone swimming on a beach across the lake.  Refreshing 60F water! LOL.

Motoring to another fishing spot.  The lake is HUGE.

I just got home and I want to go back.

Dinner tonight

Quail Scotch eggs (eggs laid by my quail that I hatched from eggs), fried oysters (that we harvested on our trip to Hood Canal 4th of July weekend), and blackberry jello salad (blackberries from our yard).  Delicious!
