How I Spent My Summer Vacation, or What’s in that shoebox? Curiosity at Migis Lodge.

No, we don’t want your shoes.  Although we’re sure they’re very attractive!  No, we’re hoping when you go through your drawers and run across those random vacation photos that maybe we can borrow some.  We’d love to scan and return.

It would be great to fill out a photo timeline more completely, covering the last, oh, 99 years.

We just put a quick folder together, trying to roll through the decades.  Some are more available than others, as you can imagine! We’d particularly like to see the 60s, 70s and early 80s more represented.  Do you think you could help?image

Can you label these with decades?   Hmmmm!  And let us know what you find in those drawers.  Or shoeboxes.  Thanks!

Time’s winged chariot…fall looms at Migis Lodge.

No, it’s not here yet, but it’s coming.  The tree frogs are humming with gusto this evening, the temperature is dropping where in our little office we have turned off the fan.  The children are running back to their cottages for a sweater, between dessert and the bonfire.  The tone of the sunsets is shifting.  You know what?  I’m going to run out for a Right Now photo.  I’ll be right back.image

There it is, right now (Thursday evening), after the last guests have left the terrace and moved inside for dinner.

The last weekend of our summer season arrives tomorrow, Labor Day is Monday, and we’ll move into the more leisurely pace of early fall.  We tweaked the Autumn Adventures calendar today, getting ready to publish.  Hikes, tastings, talks, jaunts, lessons.  Here’s a sampling of those from prior years.image

Bingo and creme anglaise? An eclectic mix at Migis Lodge.

In the continuing spirit of multiple choices for activity…or passivity…in the daily roster at Migis Lodge, we bring you Wednesday evenings.

You have already had, we imagine, a full day.  Of breakfast, of Chinese yoga with Beth, of waterskiing, of cruising to the island for cookout lunch.  Or perhaps of watching others in these activities from a peaceful perch somewhere.

Now comes the evening, and dressing up a bit and enjoying your dinner.  On Wednesday, instead of choosing your dessert from the menu, Charity serves up a dessert buffet…have it at your table, or box it up and carry it to Boulders and join in the stimulating and feverishly fun Bingo with Colby!

Chocolate pot de creme, mixed berries, raspberry coulis, whipped cream, vanilla creme anglaise, a varied cheese plate (served with pita chips, stuffed fig and pistachios), raspberry squares, key lime pie, carrot cake and cookies…chocolate pillows, world peace, and chocolate chip!

We believe you will search far and wide before you again encounter this great combination of chocolate and cheering…..
