The Splendid Table

The Narrows connect the upper and lower lobes of Long Lake. This is near the South end of the Narrows. Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s The Splendid Table has nothing on this special spot. The table is set with flowers, appetizers (but these varieties of mushrooms might be poisonous). An altogether nice place setting, just waiting for the meal to arrive. I’ve seen dragonflies land on the stumps, resting on their way to their next mosquito. Small bluegill sometimes gather in the shade.  I like to park my kayak nearby and just watch to see who turns up.

  1. @purlingturtle…it’s my favorite place on the planet. I would have loved to meet it as a child. Good news? Lots of kids and families are still building great memories here.
