Day One: Ah the olfactory experience of Vermont. Cows and Fish.

As promised, today begins our vacation at the lake, and thus my daily report to you, our faithful readers.

So I'm sitting here, on the double bed that my husband and I will soon pass out on, and there are these little mosquitoes all over my screen. I've been coming here for... nearly every year since I was 7, and yet, every year I forget about the insane bug issues.

Anyhoodle, my sister and I are not currently bonding, as she is on her boat still. One assumes. It's 10 p.m. and we haven't heard from her. So either she's taken the boat to Canada (a realistic possibility, as it's about 20 minutes from the border), or she's too busy catching fish to answer her phone.

What's that? Why yes, I did bring my blackberry on the boat. How else would I have taken these great pictures for you?

First, this is my new friend. I've named him Herbert. It seems a good name for a turtle.


Next, this is how amazingly beautiful it is. It's almost pretty enough to ignore the mosquitoes.



Funny. I don't remember taking pictures of the bugs. Oh wait. They're just *all over my screen.*

Okay, but really. Besides the bugs, it's perfect. Wish you were here! (but kind of not. because that'd be kind of creepy, and you'd hog my fishing spots. but you know. you're here in spirit.)

For some reason, as I was reading about the bugs, my eyes drifted to the first photo.

... and for about 10 seconds I thought you had turtle-sized cockroaches and I was about to be impressed.

But then my brain started working and I realised I was an idiot.

Sorry for wasting your time.

(PS it is beautiful.)

Herbert IS an excellent name for a turtle. Peanut has a turtle named Zeke, which I think is also an excellent name for a turtle.

Aww, look at the turtle.
