Well, you got some fishing shacks after all, well done.
Cheers to those hardy souls! … Have you ever ice fished?
I have not even though I have been on the ice many times.
Wow … I would have lost a bet. 😉
Tee-hee! Not my thing. 😉
Hinterland winter wonderland! It reminds me of one of those old Frazier episodes when Frazier, his dad, and his brother spent a night in one of those fishing shacks. I don’t suppose those come with heating.
Believe it or not, there are portable heaters. https://www.amazon.com/ice-fishing-heater/s?k=ice+fishing+heater
Really? Well, that would help. You might guess I have no experience at that sort of thing. I have fished, but it was from the shoreline in the middle of summer. : )
At this point, ‘winter wonderland’ qualifies as an oxymoron — unless, of course, you mean you’re wondering if the power’s going to come back on this winter.
I know. It’s been rough for those of you in the South. But remember, for Mainers, it’s been business as usual. 😉
Just what we need to hear. Come on down and spend August and early September with us. Our 110F with 90% humidity ought to make for a neat “tradesies”!
I think I’ll pass on that kind invitation. Actually, Maine is pretty darned nice in August and September.
I know. That’s why Texans head that direction in summer!
Or “summah” as we would say in Maine. 😉
Looks like it has gotten colder there, enough to support more ice huts. It’s a pretty scene for sure!
Indeed it has! Thanks, Lavinia.
Lovely images – and fishing shacks
Winter wonderland, indeed– wonder-full!
So much fun to see all the ice shacks on the lake.
Winters in Maine definitely are pretty as a picture.
A beautiful but cold time of year.
You’re finally getting the winter Maine residents love, huh, Laurie? Yeah! It’s quite beautiful, you know, and I’m happy to enjoy your photos from the warmth of my home, ha!
Yes, yes! “Wintah” in Maine. 😉
It does look pretty but I confess I don’t miss snow!
Many snowbirds feel exactly the same way, and they head south for the winter. 😉
I love these photos and the framing. Did you do that in Canva or WP or other?
I did it in Picasa, an old Google video editor that unfortunately has been discontinued. We had Picasa installed on a computer that came over with the pilgrims, and we just keep transferring it new computers. Very easy to use and has most of the things you need. Too bad Google discontinued it. Clif uses Gimp for more involved editing.
The huts look very pretty in the snow, but I’m glad to hear they have heaters in them!
Some do, but I’m not sure they all have heaters.
That counts me out!
Beautiful winter scenes, Laurie!
So, the bright red fishing shack has spawned a few more! I enjoy seeing another part of the world through your lens.
The wonderful world of blogging!
Lovely pictures! Near here there is a stretch of sand dunes where there are a few cabins. I imagine it started as people building a little shack like a beach hut – no planning permission or anything – just a little hut to shelter in. Which grew a bit and go more amenities and now they are lived in and really quite desirable! Not possible on the lake of course because the ice will melt!
Yes, those cabins in the dunes sound as though they are akin to the ice fishing shacks, with the difference being that the shacks are only brought out when there is ice and must be hauled away before the big melt.
Winter wonderland is right, and it just makes me smile. 🙂
At a friend’s house. And boy oh boy, does she love winter.
LOVE those photos of the signs!
Many thanks! At a friend’s house.
We are sending more snow your way. We have had about 5″ so far. More is to fall tonight. – Oscar
Nothing in the immediate forecast. You might be getting it all.
15F currently with light snow falling… I’m waiting a bit to go outside to feed the goats
Colder in West Virginia than it is in Maine! Go figure.
Thank Texas oil industry
Have fun ice fishing, Laurie, but stay warm. 😊
No ice fishing for me. 😉 I prefer to admire from afar.
I’m with you, Laurie.
The ice-fishing huts remind me of my time in Minnesota.
Similar climate, I think. North of north. 😉
Beautiful images Laurie, I love the timeless feeling they invoke 🧡
I love all these snowy winterscapes … now I have to make me some soup!
Soup always hits the spot. Made some yesterday.
Yum … what kind did you make? I ended up with a simple carrot, onion, celery and radish in a chicken broth, with a touch of fresh tomatoes and dried lime (Younger Daughter decided she wanted a touch of citrus).
I made a lentil soup. Spicy and tasty.
With green things? or your good ole’ trusty recipe?
My good ole trusty recipe. Am planning to make a cream of mushroom soup with a cauliflower base. (My husband has trouble with dairy.)
Ah! I love the idea of using cauliflower in place of rice, dairy, meat ….
Actually, come to think of it, I don’t put dairy in my soups, even the creamy ones. Blending them seems to create enough of a texture for me.
Yes, and if you want a somewhat chunky soup, you could reserve half and then blend the other part.
Hey, that’s such a good idea … never thought of doing a half and half! Thanks!
Wonderful winter shots. People enjoyed the frozen lakes here as well.
That guy sitting out on the ice…even if I caught a fish, that doesn’t look like fun but makes for interesting photos!
Yup. Not my thing either, but some people can’t wait for ice fishing season.
