Our little camp in winter

 

Last evening our daughter Carrie (who lives next door to the camp) went over and got a few photos.  Hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Above, the granite posts and driveway cable, and a view toward the road.
I cropped the one of the light photos to showcase the starburst reflection  even better.  This is  one of the solar lights we have placed along a path from Carrie's house to the camp.
Actually, grandson Josiah placed the lights for us, back in the spring. 
The above photo shows the lake in the distance, just below the mountain. 
Another shot of the camp.  We had thought it would be fun to add a Christmas wreath to the outside, so we were tickled when Carrie offered to get photos.
And one more of a solar light.  This really shows you that the snow cover is not very deep. 

Although we didn't think we'd be spending much time at the camp this winter (it has no insulation) if our weather stays as mild and the snow cover as minimal as it has been so far, we may take some time over there to work on insulation and other tasks inside.  We will see!

For now, we're enjoying these lovely photos which certainly have us wishing the weather does cooperate to let us do some more work over there.  Hope you've enjoyed them too.

    1. Me, too. I think that the cropped photo would make a great Christmas card.

    1. Isn't it? It shows up the shabbiness of the porch more, but that will be addressed next spring or summer.

  4. It looks so pretty in the snow, and I love the one with the light. I would be itching to go camp out in the cottage, but not without heat and running hot water, so I guess that's a no go. Maybe next year if you can get it insulated! I bet you are happy it has a metal roof! No shoveling required! Yay!

    1. Yes, metal roofs are great. I don't think we would try and camp out there this winter (but one never knows, the way things are going!), but to go for an afternoon and build a fire and work on projects ... we might do that one of these days if the weather stays mild.

  5. What a beautiful winter spot your cabin is. And those lights are something special - casting stars upon the snow. :)

    1. Thanks, Becki! Yes, I loved the star patterns from the light. There has to be a lesson for us there somewhere!

  6. What a cute winter camp. It would be great to have some mild days to work there. The lighted path is especially nice. Will Josiah shovel them out?

  7. Thanks, Vee! Yes, I really hope we can go over and work there some days if the weather cooperates.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the kids kept the lights shoveled out. That path (starting much farther up in the woods) is their sledding trail.

    I was really impressed that the very inexpensive lights gathered enough solar power to shed so much light.
