fishhawk lake activities: Fishhawk Lake Walking Meditations are Good for the Soul! - 04/16/18 08:50 AM
There are many great activities to enjoy in nature at and around Fishhawk Lake. One of the most pleasurable (and free) is to take a walk around the lake or nearby on Greasy Spoon Road--where a plethora of trails and old logging roads will take you far off the beaten track. 
 
Walking meditations are a way to exercise without it feeling like a drudgery. It gives you a chance to take deep breaths of mountain and forest air, views of Fishhawk Lake,
surrounding woods, creeks, and most definitely wildlife! Clear your mind of city life, stressful thoughts and let it all go, … (13 comments)

Waterplay is very common here at Fishhawk Lake. You can be on the water or in the water, in a variety of ways. Small sailboats, swimming, pontoons, we even have a "postage stamp" of a beach that has easy access for small people, as well as large. This video has a smattering of what spring/summer activites abound here. The water is warm enough in the summer months for bathing suits, even though these little people … (5 comments)

fishhawk lake activities: Sunset Boating on Fishhawk Lake - 07/23/16 09:35 AM
 Sunset Boating on Fishhawk Lake
There are so many reasons to buy a home on a lake and this is just one of them that creates a sense of total relaxation, which is partly why people are drawn to Fishhawk Lake.
I took this while on my pontoon on a weekday in July and I happened to be the only one on Fishhawk Lake as the sun was calling it a day. 
It was thoroughly pleasurable and the dogs were taking it all in with a joy that only dogs know and we can all learn from, having a slight breeze that whisks interesting … (20 comments)

Fishhawk Lake Friday's Fotos-Time to Break Out the Canoes!
The sun was so bright that it didn't offer really good clarity for this one, but I still had to share it. 
My friends and new full-timers at Fishhawk Lake, Rick and Julie just got their canoe and took their two dogs for a peaceful passage on a spring day in March!
I was working with new buyers and they paddled by, so I raced over and took a couple of quick photos while they went by in the canal just next to the community lodge. 
Time to clean up the boats, get them off the … (13 comments)

Fishhawk Lake Fun for every age group! 
Since it's YouTube Thursday, I thought I'd put this one out there today! 
I saw this happening on Fishhawk Lake a couple of days ago and grabbed my camera to get a quick video. Nothin' fancy, just FUN on the waters (and in them) of Fishhawk Lake!
Summer "times" that are shared are some of the best.

Yup, it's another fun walk along Greasy Spoon Road in Birkenfeld Oregon, just about a mile before you get to Fishhawk Lake! Come with me on an early evening walk with my Golden Retrievers, Kasa and Takoda as we meander along on a beautiful day in June 2015.

fishhawk lake activities: Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-One of the Best Things About My "Job".... - 03/28/15 06:57 AM
Fishhawk Lake Real Estate

One of the Best Things About My "Job"....
is when I drive a new client (or a client with family members tagging along) around Fishhawk Lake and I watch the transformation from intrigue to love take place in less than two hours' time!
It is the BEST feeling in the world to watch someone start to relax, sit back, smell the clean air, comment on how quiet it is. Then as you drive around the Fishhawk Lake community while showing homes, you have a sweet family of little ones waving from the side of the road … (21 comments)

Fishhawk Lake Birkenfeld News Local Benefit at The Birk
A benefit, put together and supported by many, was held at The Birk Pub and Eatery yesterday. Mike and Wendy Ingraham, the owners of The Birk and a big part of this small community of Birkenfeld, Oregon, located in the coastal range of Oregon, just a few miles past Fishhawk Lake,  pulled this together, along with other volunteers to raise money for Annie Jackson, friend and employee who recently lost her young husband, Nathan tragically the day after their 7 year wedding anniversary.
Many of us donated items for a silent auction … (14 comments)

fishhawk lake activities: Fishhawk Lake-Break out the Boats--Spring's Just Around the Corner! - 03/06/15 12:22 AM
February always gives us a taste of what spring feels like and we are lucky that sunny weather with crisp mornings has silently glided into March as well. 
One of my clients/neighbors, now good friend had been building a boat in their cabin's master bedroom  over the winter months(B&B he called it, Bed and Boat),
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
and just a couple of weeks ago, it was completed and brought out for its maiden voyage on Fishhawk Lake. I was lucky enough to capture some of those first moments.

Fishhawk Lake-Views of the Columbia River from Greasy Spoon Road!
Ahhhh, the glorious views that we get to experience here at Fishhawk Lake and the surrounding areas that are just a few miles away!
With hot temps all day yesterday, and showing homes, it was a terrific reward to head miles up in elevation to almost 3,000 ft above sea level to show our neighbors and friends, Mark and Darlene (whose home we showed earlier) this spectacular panoramic view!

 
 
We took our ATVs for a 7pm ride and immediately cooled off while zipping our way along old logging roads … (12 comments)

Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-Annual Local Event "DockCrawl"
This event happens every year. I decided to pull up my old blog post (from 2011) about this, because it is a time-honored tradition not to be missed and this one was so much fun!
 
This year,  the Fishhawk Lake DockCrawl falls on Saturday, August 10th, the same day as our annual Homeowners Association meeting for the members of Fishhawk Lake.
 
Dock Crawl is one of those events that happen yearly here at Fishhawk Lake, which is for members of Fishhawk Lake Recreation Club, a private man-made lake community off the beaten track in … (26 comments)

Fishhawk Lake--Paddleboarding
This is a fairly new sport to many of us, but one that is easy to do on Fishhawk Lake and inexpensive. It's really taken off around here. I'm seeing many age groups don their surfboards, a single paddle and hit the mostly placid waters of Fishhawk Lake to take a long calm, human-powered personal tour of the lake.

 
From younger kids to older women, I've seen a wide variety of Fishhawk Lake members try their hands at this newfound way of using a surfboard when there are no waves!
 
 
The first girl is using an … (19 comments)

fishhawk lake activities: Fishhawk Lake A Quiet July 4th - 07/04/13 02:03 PM
Fishhawk Lake A Quiet July 4th
 
Today, at Fishhawk Lake, it was "the calm before the storm"...a day of momentary relaxation, a low-key overcast day with breakthroughs of sun periodically.
 
This quiet pair of kayaks rested near the shoreline in my neighbor's yard. A reminder that summer is officially here. The weather always kicks in after July 4th, but I have to say...it's been truly lovely this year weather-wise, with many hot days, perfectly inviting water for dipping, long sundowns with skies bright late into the night.
At Fishhawk Lake, the 4th of July fireworks display that happens over … (6 comments)

Fishhawk Lake View from the Back of the Boat
Sometimes a simple photo of sun on the water and the view facing the back of the boat on Fishhawk Lake can be just as exceptional as the view from the front.

 
This particular photo was not retouched....the star effect was THERE and I did nothing to enhance it. The dots of rainbow-like coloring going at an angle down the center was the sun refracting. It gives it a dreamlike quality. It was taken around 5pmish.
This one is using the "gritty" editing tool in ribbet.com. I played with the … (13 comments)

There are many draws for families and friends to head to the Fishhawk Lake clubhouse for both weekenders and full timers here at Fishhawk Lake.

Beach and kids (of all ages)
 
Anytime the sun comes out and the temperatures hit above 70ish, I see generations of people bringing kids over to our "postage stamp" of a beach where there is sand and small steps that lead into the shallow water, making it quite easy for little ones to go safely into Fishhawk Lake.
 
Beach "tools" are left for whoever wants … (20 comments)

Fishhawk Lake Real Estate-Lake Activities
This weekend was utter perfection at Fishhawk Lake. Yesterday especially, kids of all ages and sizes took to the water with whatever watercraft was available to them. I saw a young boy sailing in his small sailboat with the sun hitting those primary colors on his sail and I had to grab my camera.

 There were a whole slew of kids all zipping back and forth across each other's wake basking in the late afternoon sun on Fishhawk Lake.  Three upright, one kayak on its side! (The  lakefront home on Fishhawk Lake to the left … (14 comments)

fishhawk lake activities: Fishhawk Lake Cabin Crawl 2012 - 12/19/12 12:48 AM
 
Fishhawk Lake Cabin Crawl 2012
 
Fishhawk Lake has two big progressive parties every year, Dock Crawl in the summer and Cabin Crawl in the winter. It’s usually attended by scads of people and this year was no exception! Both are fun, but there is something about cozying up with 50 of your favorite neighbors during the Christmas holidays to make for a wondrous time!

 
 
We started off at the Taylor’s home for snacks and libation. The smallest Fishhawk Lake Cabin Crawl attendee was quite interested in the jar of marbles until he spied my glass of wine. … (11 comments)
