Whimsical Windows - Lakeside view


Toby graciously hosts the fun architectural meme Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors. Windows allow us to look out hopefully at scenery of note. I unearthed these views taken in August 1983 and a vacation to a relative’s lakefront home in Minnesota. Big Stony Lake one of actually 11,842 (not 10,000) lakes in this beautiful state and four hours northwest of the Minneapolis/St Paul airport - close to the headwaters of the mighty Mississippi River. We are looking outside the living room window toward the boat on the lake 

The bottom view is looking up from the dock - nondescript in style, yet functional for a lakefront home. Inland is where we reside now, but summer in The land of sky blue waters is great for a respite, although the mosquitoes up there are the size of birds :)

That does look like a perfect vacation spot! The mosquitoes sound a little scary, though :)

For a cottage, this doesn't look too nondescript in style to me! I love those big bay windows and the large deck, plus it is two storeys! There must have been some fun family gatherings at this place.

It would be interesting to see the view today from those amazing windows. I wonder if all the trees are still there.

Mosquitoes the size of birds sounds rather scary!
