~crystal lake canoe bar 2012~

Cross your fingers......
My computer is fixed, and I'm back!

I wanted to show you a little part of one of the fun things we do here at the lake.
Once a year in the summer months a group of people living here host a gathering called the 

CANOE BAR.

You can read about a previous year here.
This year we all gathered at one of our floating docks and celebrated in honor of the upcoming Olympics in London.
The women wore facinators and the men dressed very dapper.
Everyones boats were all decked out.
We drank Pimms and ate tea sandwiches, and for dessert had gold metal cookies.

It started at 7 pm, and people came and went until well over midnight.
It was such a fun night.
Another reason why I will never leave Crystal Lake!



 Real silver and roses on a floating dock, now that's what I call a party!













 Someone even brought a fire pit they towed from behind their canoe!

OH MY!! You've gotta bottle-up this brilliant idea and spread it around to all waterfront communities! Jolly good time! Do an entire spread in Souvenir sometime - so I might savor this for many summers to come! :-)

Everyone looks having fun with this canoe bar. I think having an experience in a place like this is a great experience that we won't forget. This can make my weekend so happy.

Oh my Gosh what a blast! I'm moving up there right now!! It reminds me so much of when I lived in the Midwest and we would go out on my Brother's boat all the time. Darn I miss those days! We would do some crazy things too. What good is life if you can't enjoy it!

Cheers!
