The Hansen Family – 5 days of Social Distancing, Northwind Lodge Style

Take a look at these beautiful photos!  This is the Hansen family who spent 5 days and 4 nights here at Northwind Lodge.  I’m exhausted just looking at how much they managed to pack into 5 days!  They fished hard, paddled a lot, hiked, ate fish, played with the dog, got up early, and so on.  Mom and daughter even took a 2 hour painting lesson and successfully produced two works of art which also serve as cool trip mementos.

This is THE WAY to socially distance.  I had so much fun with their photos, I will be joining them for their stay the next time they come up.   They don’t have a choice in the matter.

“Where’s Joe?”

“He’s staying with the Hansen family for the week.  There is no cell reception so, you’ll have to just wait ’til he gets back.”

“But, he’s just over in Cabin #8.  It’s like 400 feet from here.”

“He’s on a great vacation.  Leave him alone!”

(My dreams…..sigh….)

Calista Smith, age 7 and 1/2 with her nice largemouth that she caught right off the dock at Northwind Lodge.  Holding up her catch is her dad Kevin who is here with her mom, Carrie over the Memorial weekend enjoying dark skies, very temperate weather, calm water and good fishing.  Calista has now put several fish on the dock including more largemouth and several nice northerns.  Mom, Dad, Grandma and her husband have been enjoying fresh, coldwater fish this weekend as well as art lessons with Joe up at the Fernberg Gallery.
