day 4430: odin and evelyn enter the blueberry festival cooking contest!

odin made two crust blueberry pie. he has won first place in two previous years which is incredible. if he wins again I really think it’s time for him to start a blueberry pie business! evelyn made a three layer lemon blueberry cake with cream cheese frosting which looks absolutely delicious. not pictured, odin’s cousin hayley entered a blueberry buckle cake.

i *think* one of them will win a ribbon today but even if they don’t we all win because we get to eat all the treats after judging is finished later today!

day 4429: odin and evelyn’s island.

day 4429:  odin and evelyn's island.

it’s about a half mile paddle to this island from camp. It’s interesting from a geological perspective because while it’s a small for an island, it’s still a giant hunk of granite with a small layer of dirt and it’s the only formation of its on the lake. Where did it come from? In any case, I’ve never been on the island, have never seen anyone in it and don’t think it has a name. It’s not on any maps of the lake. Odin and evelyn decided they wanted to make a landing. so they did!

i think it will hereby by known as odin and evelyn’s island.

we made first landing yesterday and we all got out of the kayaks and collected some rocks. When we left a loon let us know she was not very happy with us being in her territory. I don’t think she had a nest on the island but it must have been nearby.
