The main story of the day was the felling of the broken birch tree that had threatened visitors to Camp for the last two years. There is more to the telling, and perhaps a video update from Andrew will be included here at some unspecified future date. In the meantime, the story of the operation can be seen in the stump. The notched "kerf" cut with the axe, the backcut with the chainsaw, and the portion holding the tree unitil it was pulled down by Andrew's Chevy 4WD (a critical component for the successful completion of the entire operation).
There were some other activities this cold and rainy day...
Papa pulled KP duty and is peeling potatos for his Potato Onion Soup - welcome break from the Yom Kippur fast.
We had visitors- Whitney and Mary stopped by to say hi to Brian and Andrew. Shag Cam fans witnessed an exciting card game of Phase 10 (I have no idea).
While too rainy for the boat, we got some fishing in at the expansive Shag Lake Beach. I caught some undersized pike casting from the shore. Papa caught some bass and bluegill from the dock.
