Keuka Lake 2005

Here are some snapshots from this year's visit to Keuka Lake in western NY (we do this every year).

Julie's college roomate Deb joined us for the July 4 weekend; I took her new husband Eli and son Philip out sailing on the flying dutchman.

Philip loved playing Mystery Rummy: Jack the Ripper (my new favorite). Recommendation: listen to the GeekSpeak interview of this game's designer Mike Fitzgerald.

We had a rousing game of Bang! that everyone enjoyed.

At the very end of our trip last year we picked up a used Walker Bay rowboat. This is now one of Jacob's favorite activities, though Matthew certainly enjoys being a passenger.

We had a great skiing year - Jacob was able to get up and stay up on a slalom ski (not shown here) and Matthew was able to ski on two.

Jacob and I spent three mornings out fishing deep for lake trout. We did reasonably well, cooking fish for two meals. This picture was our big surprise - a 19 inch largemouth caught about 40 feet below the surface.
