Loon Lake #4 September 2016

Loon Lake

One of my favorite things is an empty campground, and this was the situation at Loon Lake this time.  Mid week, September… perfect for camping.  Weather was delightful and even got a little rain on the last morning.  Kate went with me and Ben and Charlie this time.  Not much swimming because the water was about 10 degrees cooler than August.  And the bees/wasps were less annoying this time.  Charlie and Ben both rode in the kayaks.  Fishing was much improved, caught a couple, one decent sized.  Charlie was a handful as all puppies are but he loved it and he is so cute to watch his excitement and enthusiasm.  What a character.  Ben over did himself as always and was kind of limping near the end of the three days.  I think his feet were sore or possibly some sore muscles.  He is back to normal now.  In the video below, the two items that Charlie was caught eating were a dead, petrified fish and horse poop.  Nice, huh.

  1. Great pics! Charlie is a very lucky/happy/fit-right-in guy. He & Ben are so great together. Your video made me cry in happiness for you all. (The music might have messed with me too.) Well done!

  2. Thanks! I like to use the melancholy music, emotional for some reason. Kind of timeless, sets a big picture point of view of the campout. Family, good times, youth a more general focus. and in a way sad that good times dont last forever but happy too, in that they do exist. Anyway, I think the music sets the mood.

  3. Hi,

    Charlie is getting taller every new video. You all appear to be enjoying yourselves. Puppies are a hoot!! It looks like it might be quite difficult to be in the Kayak with the two doggies. I find the music to be meditative. Nice, relaxing. Love looking at the lake and the surroundings. What kind of fish?

    Thanks!
