From Lynn Kisselbach
After a long, snowy winter, it’s good to see bare ground. Not that the cross-country skiing wasn’t spectacular all winter, or the snowshoeing for that matter. But I’m ready for spring. The ice is off the lake, and the trees are starting to bud and bloom.
My husband and I took a walk down to the lake to check things out. Our canoe made it through the winter just fine. We also noticed a great deal of beaver activity, and discovered their lodge. It was interesting to watch them come and go for a while. Industrious little fellows, I must say.
We expect the return of the loons soon. I can hear them in the morning sometimes, and it never fails
to make me stop what I’m doing and listen. In past summers, I have swum in the lake early in the morning – it’s just me and the loons sometimes.
I went to a nice golf social last weekend. Since I’m still relatively new to Eastman (more on that subject later), and I haven’t played golf in years, I thought this summer would be a good time to get back to playing. The last time I played at Eastman was with my Dad, and that was almost 10 years ago, but I remember the course being spectacular. Can’t wait to
get out and play here again.
The social was lovely, with great food provided by Bistro Nouveau, our on-site restaurant. I met some other folks who are just learning, so I now have some people to call when I want to play. Bistro Nouveau offers a wide range of excellent food. You can sit in the dining room or in the pub. We made a lot of new friends in the pub over the winter, and had a lot of laughs. It’s a great place to meet your neighbors and relax.
