every summer i have a little pilgrimage. i take photos every time, some years they are better than others. and it always gives me the same shivery thrill. tom takes me in the boat for a little tour of the lake. it's basically just a 2o minute drive across the lake to the island that houses 'fancy free'. a yellow cottage with a shady porch wrapped around it's walls. screen doors that slam. a swimming raft and canoe. adirondack chairs and old webbed lawnchairs, tire swings and hammocks. every accoutrement to easy, gentle living scattered on the island. yesterday we had our little fancy free boat ride!
