Thank goodness, Robert’s joke about a trailer was really a joke. There is no way! I wasn’t really worried, but maybe a tiny bit worried. The drive wasn’t too bad. I slept most of the way actually, but everyone said the scenery was spectacular.
The house is lovely. It is rustic cute, and right on a pretty lake. It has AC and wifi, so I think I will survive. Luckily I brought a few throws and pillows and some rustic art so we can feel very much at home this week.
The lake is called a non-motorized lake, which means you have to work to take a boat out. No zipping into town with a cute lil’ motorboat. You can see loads of kayakers and sailboats though, so it is scenic at least. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a local photographer who could come over at the last minute to take photos of us arriving and relaxing, so it is up to St. Lah Lee again, to snap a few shots so we can even remember the trip.
Röbby says he has an all-day hiking trip planned for tomorrow, so no photographers then either. Oh boy! I sure am looking forward to hiking up a mountain with the children.
There is a totally darling little guest house out in the woods. It is a little bit away from the main house, but it will be so cozy at night. Merlin gets to stay out there. He says he is “scared” to be alone out there, but of course he is just making it up. And there is nowhere else for him to sleep. He can’t stay with Starling and he would keep Hummus up, and the only other room in the house is way too girly and foofy for a little boy. It will be fun.
Since I am on vacation, I am going to go down to the dock with a large vodka with diet tonic and a squeeeze of lime. Naughty!
