This is the view from the top of our hill overlooking our docking area near our cottage on Big Bass Lake. It was a view that Ricky Herrmann and I took in prior to getting into our rowboat for a trip northward to our wooded beachfront.  For the entire trip there Ricky danggled his left foot out of the boat and into the water even though I joked that a fish might take his boot for some bait and latch onto him.
