We have just returned from the annual close-up-the-cabin weekend. Part of this experience includes a walk or bike ride around the lake. This year was a first: we did a combination bike-athlon.
Meaning we both walked a bit on our favorite stretches along the lake path - the gravel road with a canopy of colorful trees overhead - and biked down the hills on the south side of the lake- wheeeeee!
Meaning I could pause to take pictures on the walking parts and dismount the bike on the parts where the views just took my breath away (while catching my own breath).
We certainly lucked out this year with lovely weather and colorful trees. It has been said by one of the year-round lake residents that the leaves are close to peak right now. In past years we seemed to have been missing this event with green leaves on trees or mostly bare branches.
What took my breath away was the combination platter we were served - colorful leaves with a blue, blue sky and a side dish of white, wispy clouds.
Incidentally, my cabin-read was this memoir about Julia Child.
You can certainly figure out the connection to the feast for the eyes and the feast for the belly.
