Friday's Fotos from Fishhawk Lake-First Cabin at Fishhawk Lake

There is something about this tiny place that always tugs at my heart when I see it in certain lights on Fishhawk Lake

First Cabin on Fishhawk Lake-Gayle Rich-Boxman Copyrighted All Rights Reserved 2015

This particular early evening, the lake was glassy and the curling smoke rising up into the backdrop of the woods just drew me in. It felt so welcoming and cozy! There's a little light in the window on the far right and I believe that the spot of orange is freshly cut and stacked wood. 

This was the first cabin here and it was situated in a different spot as the story goes, and was here before Fishhawk Lake went in. The developer asked the owner if he would be allowed to put in the lake and move this cabin for the owner, to which he agreed from what I know. 

Many years later, the current owner bought it online! Amazing. She moved here from California when the economy tanked and she now lives here full time.

Excellent photo, Gayle. Love how it looks like an ordinary day with the smoke and the camper but well shown. Great job!

Patty Da Silva, Davie, Southwest Ranches Cooper City, Plantation, Weston, REALTOR it's such a simple little place, but still endearing. That's a horse trailer, actually--she's a horsewoman as well as an owner of two big Great Danes! The horses are boarded elsewhere.

Gayle,

I love the color, when we are in Napa, I want to show my favorite red barn which was turned into a residence.  It is right in the middle of the vineyard.  A

Gayle some great colors--the blue/gray smoke, the very deep green trees, and the barn red cabin--so cool!

What a wonderful story, and a really gorgeous photo, Gayle.  I want to move there, especially now that I know I can't live in California either!

Ron & Alexandra Seigel--Debb and I were just talking about that yesterday...the return flight, the drive to get to the airport and the "attire". I hope to have the new easy camera that Dick Greenberg owns, too so that we can compare notes and I won't have to keep changing lenses to get my pics!

Tom White I love your enthusiasm! Boundless it seems. Say hi to your wife for me! 

Ron Marshall--and why can't you live in CA anymore??

Hi Gail! That's quite an amazing story and photo too! There sure is a lot of attention to detail in this photograph and I love how you described the beautiful cabin on the lake. The current owner has an amazing story. I hope her story gets written into a novel. It would be wonderful to hear her side of the story too! But for now, I'm enjoying yours!!!

Sharon Lee somehow I missed writing a comment on yours, as it was quite a "smiler"! Sometimes these beg to be framed in "reflection", as I think this one is. I LOVE working in Ribbet for my photo-editing.

Michael Jacobs Thoroughly Modern Rockwell....somehow it doesn't have the same ring as Thoroughly Modern Millie...but I DO see your point. AND I take it as a compliment. 

Rob Thomas should I ever get the chance to list this, I will remember these adjectives--you know your stuff!

Michael Thornton --I would say that you and I are often drawn to the same simplicity of country living in our photographs. 

Patricia Feager, MBA, GRI, Cert Negotiations Expert, Military Relo Prof --there are MANY stories I could weave, truth with a bit of embellishment--Lake Wobegone is what comes to mind. I wouldn't have the radio voice that Garrison Keiller has, but I also wouldn't have those eyebrows, either, so it's a tradeoff! You and I  BOTH know how we BOTH feel about writing, so no need to expound on that topic. I always kick things around for the future when I have more free time to ponder my next career...

Gayle loved the picture and the story although it did not start out as perfect situation clearly it turned out good...now the smoke reminded me of like Aladdin's Lamp I was expecting something to come out:)))Endre

Good morning Gayle. Anytime you can tell the story behind a photo, it has much more meaning. Love the barn red on the cottage.

Make it a great weekend!

What a great story Gayle and that little red cabin looks like such a charming place.  I love that someone had a vision that the house was situated on property that begged for a Lake - Yay for you and your neighbors and clients!!  Happy Valentine's Day
