Between the cottage and deck (the last 2 pics) is the stairway down to the lakefront...in May! It won't look this inviting now in winter, but you get the idea.
My 3-year younger brother, Bennett, helped my dad build these steps over 12 years ago. My dad died in 1995 and a year later, Bennett joined him after a heart attack. He had never married and left behind no children. These steps have remained sacred to me over the years, which is why I call them Bennett's Stairway.
We will NOT
have Internet access while at the cottage, so please forgive me while I
auto-post pics without the ability to reply to comments or visit your
own sites. I promise to catch up when I return after the 1st.
