Departure Day - The Last First


As per usual on my Michigan trips. the blog is lagging hopelessly behind. We've been at the lake house a week, and I've yet to make a single post.  To deal with this situation I am implementing my usual solution, which is to post something - anything -  somewhere in the middle of the gap and start blogging at both ends. Hopefully we catch up at some point.


We'll begin at an end - the last post of cousins Ken, Donna, Adam and Davids first trip to Shag Lake. It was great fun having them here, and although their trip was short, we packed a lot into it including a number of "Firsts": first visit, Adam's first fish, our cumulative first fishing experience in a snow storm on a pontoon boat, the first geocache experience, and my first ever loss in a game of Hearts. It was bound to happen sooner or later.



But I digress... As a proper sendoff, we also had a farewell dinner on the grill.




Steaks with a soy sauce sesame oil marinade, campfire potatoes, steamed asparagus with a lemon garlic sauce, and a selection of grilled veggies including onions, garlic, peppers and mushrooms. 



It was good.
