Gilbert Lodge
Since 2004

July 18, 2008:  Mark and Paula are enjoying a "spicy chicken" dinner using a recipe from Diane Hoglin at the Brainerd Dispatch newspaper.  They finished it off with a big helping of carrot cake on the Promenade Deck at Gilbert Lodge.
From there, they set sail aboard "The Minnow" on Gilbert Lake.  That includes Josie--the sailor cat.  Paula is keeping a watchful eye on her. 
We came across some beautiful Bread and Butter flowers along the shoreline.
Fishermen were out that night too and doing well.
A mother Duck and her little ones.

July 19, 2008:  (l-r) SCUBA divers Leslie Kopietz and Paula Persons after Paula's 200th dive in the mine pits near Crosby, MN.  Paula has been a diver for about nine years and dives often with regulars from the Minnesota School of Diving.
Dive Master Bill LaCroix is wearing the yellow poncho because of rain that day, but that didn't stop him and the other divers from enjoying a good shore lunch.  As they said, "It doesn't get any better than this."  Paula even brought fresh watermelon to share for dessert.
