Goodbye, Cabin

In the morning, we packed up and headed out. Not for home — not yet. We have stops in Tennessee, Virginia and Pennsylvania to share with you. But first, the traditional family photo outside the front door. Photo by Wilson. […]

The Last Cabin Supper

Watermelon-peach-tomato salad. Steak. Corn. And more tomatoes. Can’t beat that with a stick. And, just because it’s so pretty, a little slicing tomato action here above the jump: Related posts: Back at the Cabin for Supper on the Porch Welcome […]


Cocktail Hour at the Dock

We did a lot more cocktail hour at the dock on other visits to the cabin. Example 1. Example 2. And we’d let an entire week go by without getting down there for magic hour. So on our last evening? Wine […]


A Few More Lake Photos

We’ll get back to food in just a moment folks. Indulge me in one more round of fun photos from the lake. (Don’t forget, the motto of SCF is “Eat. Drink. Live.” We’re doing some living!) Swimming with Wilson, Sarah, […]

We’re On a Boat

There’s nothing quite like the stillness of the lake just before sunset. So on both Wednesday and Thursday, we ate super-early and were able to take a dip in the water and a nice spin around the lake before dark. […]


Late Night at the Cabin

Folks, I promise to get back to cooking and recipes in a few posts. For now, indulge me in a few photos for posterity’s sake. Here’s the family having a few drinks after the evening’s round of game playing. Here’s […]


Afternoon Card Games

Another lake tradition is playing cards in the afternoon. More often if it’s raining, but sometimes just because. Leigh and Lexi take a stab at Russian Bank: Related posts: Games on the Screened-In Porch Relaxing at the Dock Wild Card […]


Relaxing at the Dock

Lexi Skiing!

After a few days of trying and ending up skies akimbo with mouthfuls of water, Alexis finally mastered waterskiing. She took her first spin on Thursday morning, July 7, 2011, and went all around Sale Creek further than we experienced […]


Back at the Cabin for Supper on the Porch

Another supper, another porch. (Is that a Kiss Me Kate song?) Look at that beautiful blue sky behind Lexi, Wilson and Sarah. Related posts: Games on the Screened-In Porch Welcome to The Cabin! Fourth of July Supper: Smoked Ribs and […]


Games on the Screened-In Porch

After supper each evening, we took to the game table. Mostly we played Taboo, which is a whole lot of fun with a whole lot of people. Truly! Related posts: Fourth of July Supper: Smoked Ribs and Chicken Welcome to […]


Lake View from the Cabin

It’s nice to wake up to this in the mornings, isn’t it? And here’s a nice one at sunset. A few more pics, after the jump. Related posts: Welcome to The Cabin! Goatherd Book Club: A Room with a View


Wild Blackberry Breakfast

The Waggoners were up a lot earlier than the rest of us one morning, and decided to go up to the top of the hill to pick blackberries from the briar. They came home with a bundle. Mae’s already a […]
