  • Laughing. Smiling. Crying. Throwing family members off the dock. Swimming into the late hours of the night. Dazzling Fourth of July fireworks.  Hundreds of picturesque memories surround my lake house in the quaint town of Fitzwilliam New Hampshire. It is easy to remember the glistening lake, the...

  • I don't think that I have ever had an experience quite like this trip to Munising.  I've fallen in love with the scenery, the smell, the weather, but most of all the water.  This trip has been a very eye opening experience for me and pushed my love for the Upper Peninsula. Two days ago we...
