The little sauna house

At the beginning of the summer,

Building started down by the lake.

It was a lovely place to sit and contemplate the sunset.

(That’s Ruby posing.)

A few days ago, I went back to the lake

And could see that the construction was now finished.

Turns out that the local caravan park

Has built a sauna for its guests

On the shore of the lake.

(Still plenty of room for Simmie to swim!)

And Skywatch.

Work is busy so I’ll only be posting once this week.

  27. Wonderful first shot. I expect the sauna house will be popular and it’s a nicely constructed little building, but I can’t help thinking that it spoils the view of the natural edge of the lake…

    • It does spoil the view from that edge. But to the right (out of the picture), there is a new jetty that juts out over the lake, and the view is fabulous from there.

    Ruby must be a well-trained photographer’s dog. With the plank in the water, I thought it was a house built for your pups, I think Simmie did too. Beautiful. So you have to get in the water to use the sauna? Are they going to pull up the board when it starts to freeze then put it back down? I can’t wait to see.
