    Nice set - looks like a very nice place to visit. Excellent images!
     
  6. I was up that way yesterday rode the motorcycle down the edge of the lake. Certainly is a beautiful area I go there about 5 times a year. I live about 50 miles south.
    Great pictures, but it looks like the cannon shell is going to blow one of those boats out of the water. Just kidding.

  7. I've been there once. Want to return. It's a lovely spot.
     
  8. Awesome series- thanks so much for sharing these. I spent a lot of time around the marina there as a kid- very fond memories. I hope I can get back there someday.
