The family and I leave on Saturday for our annual retreat to Lake Belle Taine in beautiful northern Minnesota, and we will return next Saturday.

We've gone the past 3 years, and my wife went with her family (before we were married) for 3 years before that. Its becoming tradition, and we look forward to it every single year.

Pretty good deal we get too. My in-laws and us rent two cabins from a former coworker of my FIL. We get cozy accomodations, cold running water (Bathe? Jump in the lake! Its literally right out the front door.) fridge, propane stove, wood stove if we need heat, etc, for the wonderful price of $185 for the week.

I can't wait, I am so excited!

This is a map of the lake: http://www.parkrapids.com/lodging/lakemaps/belletaine.html

We are situated basically where Resort Content is, although our cabins are not part of the resort, they are private property.



Here is a view of the cabin I took from the end of the dock last August:



This is the website to the town that is 1.5 miles up the road from where we stay: http://www.nevismn.com/

The first Sunday we are there, The Taste of Dorset is held. Dorset is about 8 miles from where we stay. Here is the website: http://dorsetmn.com/

Finally, here is a map showing roughly where Nevis is in relation to where we live. We live in a suburb of Minneapolis/St Paul.



I'm gonna miss you guys! (Sniff, sniff.)
