Up The River Without a Paddle

I am happiest on a boat; speed boat, leaky dingy, rubber raft, doesn't matter. One of my very parts of summer is going for boat rides on Mattawakmeag Lake in Maine. This summer, my Uncle Donn took us up the lower lake and up into the river for a ride on a gorgeous day in September. (Double click on the pictures to biggify-it's worth it!)

 I love the reflection in the still water.

 Good Fishin' Hole!

The mountain in the distance in Mays Mtn.  The lake sits in a bowl at it's foot.  Heaven on earth!
