Travis and I dropped off our last group for 2013 yesterday morning. The end of each season is always bittersweet. We love what we do up here: seeing our guests, hearing their fishing stories, enjoying the view, and the many hours put in each day to do our part to ensure all our guests have a great week of fishing.

However, both of us always look forward to the last few weeks after our guests have gone home as well. We will get in some fishing, enjoy the peace and quiet while sitting out on the deck, do significantly less dishes, and start to say goodbye to this amazing corner of the earth that has become a home we both truly love.

The first few days can be weird. It can be hard to wind down after putting so much effort towards operating a fishing lodge for the last 15 weeks. I think we will manage.
Yesterday we ran together in town, had a nice lunch date, came back to camp, and promptly took a 3 hour nap. Both Travis and Cosmo are excellent nappers 🙂
Have a good weekend folks – I think ours is shaping up pretty nicely!
