Summer Chairs On Bad Medicine Lake

These are Jen’s idea of Summer Chairs..she said “Mom get ready here come the Summer Chairs.”

I like their reflections in the water.  The blue stool between the red and green chair doesn’t belong..but other than that they look almost perfect.

We went over to Bad Medicine Lake.  We were very impressed the water is very clear and such a beautiful color.  It is the cleanest lake I have ever seen in Minnesota.

There are some islands on the lake..

We all liked this one.  I believe that this is as close to waterfront property as you can get in Minnesota without actually being in the water.  In recent years the water in this lake has been rising.   Bad Medicine Lake has no inlet or outlet it is entirely spring fed.

I remembered this lake years ago when it had weeds,  the crayfish went nuts in this lake in the late 1960’s and they ate all the weeds. 

It was almost a perfect lake day in Minnesota on Sunday, temperatures were in the seventies and we had some sunshine along with some clouds:)

  12. Loving those chairs, and the clear water. Funny how the waters of my childhood were always crystal clear.

    I am wondering if that's my memory clouding, or pollution now.

  19. I, too, love the summer chairs. That house/cabin is crazy - - - there appears to be no land at all around or under it. Sure hope the inhabitants don't sleep-walk!

  20. The neighbor down the street has chairs like the ones in your picture. Every time I drive by, I think those chairs would make a wonderful painting. All those beautiful colors. The reflections in the water are great.
