Ana's Waters, the SLG blog, has an article detailing this trip.

As is our custom, we form a triangle with sticks and place our offerings to the Land Spierits within.

A good view of the semicircular peninsula that juts out into the lake.

The frog thinks we haven't noticed it, but we have!

Across the waters.

The sun sets.

Not sure what kind of berries these are, pretty though! (Barbara has let me know that it is probably honeysuckle.)
[image]
The murky depths. Or the murky shallows?
[image]
We still see you!
[image]
No houses on the far side, so this can't be Island Lake, can it?
[image]
Gen looks northeast.
[image]
Beautiful, ain't it?
[image]
We contemplate the magnificence of Manannan and the power of nature.

Rob makes a final offering.

Jude arrives as the rest of us are leaving!

Group shot: Rob, Kestrel, Matt, Jude, Mike, and Gen.

Matt is proud to have found the correct path.

You WILL get lost whene'er you try to find
The Grey One's own peninsula and shrine
Let goofy Matthew start you on your way
By pointing out the "No Trespassing" sign.


(Rob has been reading too much Dan Brown lately.)

For those worried about the legality of our visit, this sign is posted on the other side of the road from where we were. The shrine area is on public land.

The tree stump which we think will help us find the correct path when we return in October. (Actually, it did!)
