Yesterday was the date I decided to take the pier out of the water for the winter. I had to wade out into the COLD water to remove each of the 5 sections and the uprights (only just past my knees).
As my legs began to go numb, I would look up and see this view. It instantly made me realize how lucky I was to be standing in 40 degree water! The 53 degree air temperature felt really warm when I got out of the water.

Lake Tahoe, eat your heart out...Walter, too! Walter is always showing us beautiful shots from his daughter's house at Tahoe. In my opinion, this is just as beautiful but a bit more natural. Beautiful colors in the trees and water. Great work. I hope you didn't get the camera wet!

It certainly is a lot less expensive than Tahoe! And only a 1.5 hour drive each weekend.

Is this the same place as "On Golden Pond" (Jane Fondle, etc.)? It looks just like it. As we have an aged near relative nearby with severe Alzheimer's, I feel emotional just looking at the picture.

I'm not certain where On Golden Pond was filmed, but I think it was in Wisconsin or Minnesota. This lake is in northern Indiana,a fewhundred milesawayat the southeast portion of Lake Michigan, about 20 miles inland, about 80 miles from Chicago.
