Whitewater Kayaking

Kayaking Class 4-5 rapids of the Raquette River at Stone Valley (Photo by Bill Loucky-Ramsey 8/7/10)

Took a boy from church and the dogs to Stone Valley Recreation Area along the Raquette River today to watch the Whitewater Release Kayaking.  Came in from the Colton end for class 4-5 rapid kayaking.  50-100 spectators came to watch 25-50 kayakers.  Very exciting … made me wish I had been in the water with them! — Bill Loucky-Ramsey, Innkeeper from Hidden Meadow Inn, Norfolk, NY

Keeshond on Board!

A Fisherman and His Buddy

A Keeshond Angles a Kiss from a Finnish Angler

Here is a group of photos from a Finnish Facebook friend who has keeshonden, like our Lola and Apache.

Apache just got a new yellow life-jacket and is learning to swim in the pool!

We haven’t found one that fits Lola properly yet.

Since Keeshonden are commonly known as Dutch barge dogs, it seems natural that they might take to fishermen, to boats, and to the sea.  But I think kissing, sleeping, and eating are some of their favorite things (all of which you can see in these photos).

Teen Guests Love the Pool & the Horses

We enjoyed hosting a mother and daughter from Delhi, NY, today.  We were joined by two teenage boys from church.  Weather was perfect for swimming in the pool.  Later on another couple arrived with their daughter from Valley Stream, Long Island, NY for their second visit.    Both girls were close in age, and one works on a horse farm.  We went to Baxters to visit the horses, and enjoyed playing with the dogs, too.  Took a few photos.  Here’s one of Shammy:

What a paradise of tranquility and serenity you have created here!  There is also a beautiful “spiritual retreat” atmosphere, which is nourishing to one’s soul.  Thank you for creating such openness, kindness & hospitality.  May the Lord continue to bless your lives to do His work on earth.  Thank you Bill, Joanna, Apache & Lola! — (Dian Baker, Pianist, Phoenix Boys Choir) — Tempe, AZ
