Snowy adventures

A friend from way south of the snowline visited the northwoods this weekend. We tried to do as many snowy activities as time allowed. On Saturday Blue took L for her first snowmobile ride, then on Sunday we put some tip-ups in the lake (didn't catch anything though). On the way to the airport Sunday, we stopped by the tribute to the mythical creature - the Hodag - and took some glamor shots.

There wasn't a whole lot of knitting that took place, but I did manage to finish my hat (seen in the pic) and a scarf. L started on a throw blanket for her brother - a very handy traveling project!

This morning Blue and I woke up to what sounded like an airplane circling the house. And when he went to put some tip-ups in, we found out indeed it was an airplane, with skis on it. It is so cute and little, but it sure makes me nervous. I can't believe this tiny lake is even big enough to land a plane THAT small! I went down to take some pictures of it, but was inside when it took off again.

You crack me up!

Tip-ups, which carry a line attached to a flag that "tips up" when a strike occurs, allow unattended or less-intensive fishing.

there's more on ice fishing here if you're interested. i don't know why you would be though. lol
