In my lifetime I've moved over 15 times. I've lived in five different states. Two countries. Three different swim teams :) And through it all the only place that stayed constant was my grandparents cottage on Walloon Lake. A cedar cottage, small, rather cozy, with bunk beds in the back room, a rickety dock and a small bit of shore line. And although it doesn't seem but an out building compared to the huge mansions being built nowadays, it's home to me. A place where I feel safe. No matter what else is going on in my life when I walk into the 70's kitchen and see Walloon glistening outside the front windows *sighs* everything seems to aright itself.
This image from Wes Baccolett was the first prize winner of the Walloon Nature Scape photography contest last year, isn't he talented? It's a bit moody, but I like it. My sisters and their husbands, and my parents and grandmother are all going to be on Walloon in the middle of July. I'll be sure to take pictures for you!
