Lake Wanaksink Living

 Deep in the woods and into Upstate NY near Rock Hill, resides a small cabin town around wonderful water, Lake Wanaksink.

 Good Morning Lake ✌ the joy this moment now is indescribable. Lucky for me, the pictures will forever last.

 Traveling is my passion. The kinds of things you fall in love with are life changing. Fitzgerald once wrote, “there are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice.” I believe the same for places, nature and gratitude.

 The weekend has been delicious, relaxing and adventurous. The cabin came fully equipped. A stocked fridge, liquor cabinet and choice of boats for the lake in the backyard. And to help balance play and rest, Barbara built-in a zen garden and a field full of flowers to brighten the peace.

 We woke up early to experience the sunrise. And enjoyed a full American breakfast on the porch.

 The sun was out all day and we took advantage of it. Started with taking the boat out where we had drinks and snacks. I drifted off into my world and sketched in my little black book.

 We canoed to the island and explored the place. Spent the late afternoon swimming around the island and jumping off rocks.

 John F. Kennedy once said, “We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, wether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back to whence we came.”  

 Kennedy spoke a lot of wisdom throughout his short-lived life. He was a man with the right principles, honesty was at the top. I also believe he was a man in tune with the world. And his connection to the ocean is forever real.

 Barbara cooked us a delicious meal. Saffron chicken with 3 homemade side dishes. So good that I couldn’t wait, not even for a picture. But lucky for you I snapped one of the dessert dish, a giant chocolate cupcake filled with fudge inside. Also baked by Barbara.

 The next day the boys, Chef Jeff & Ted, served up filet mignon steaks with Barbara’s purple potato salad and classic home style baked beans. Food has always been the pathway to my heart.
