Anstruther Lake

Just in from a weekend at a cottage. It was fabulous! The weekend started with the drive up to Anstruther Lake (just over 2 hours away). The boat trip across the lake to a lake access only cottage was very cool because it’s a totally new concept for me. I’m used to cabins in the mountains:) FIFTY stairs up a cliff to get to the cottage (I was the designated sherpa) was thankfully followed by a large dinner – mmmmmm! We then watched Bandits and this was, overall, a great way to start the weekend. Saturday we spent the day in the cottage because of the rain. Movies, reading, Trivial Pursuit (my team kicked butt!!), lots of chatting/laughing/teasing and some great meals filled the day. Today the weather cleared so we ventured over to the waterfall. The 4 of us climbed up this waterfall that was beautiful. We spent about 2 ½ hours there exploring, playing, and simply taking in the surroundings. Mary and I ventured into the whirlpool which was very cool. Many photo ops were there – so we obliged, and I will post as soon as they are sent to me since I was the one climbing about:) We headed back for a BBQ and packing up. Now I’m home, have to unpack, and am bagged. I’m sad to see these great weekends end, but I know I’m fortunate to have these opportunities presented to me, so thank you!

These are a couple quick pictures from the cottage…

I was googling Anstruther Lake as we've rented a cottage there in July. Looks like you had a great time, and I am looking forward to seeing teh lake even more now!
