This is the stone pier on Black Hawk Lake in Lake View, IA. John and I went Saturday to check on Grandma Jean, who had surgery on her shoulder earlier this week. Samantha came to visit also, and did a couple of odd jobs for Mary.
This cute stone cottage is quite close to the stone pier on the edge of the lake. Samantha drove me around the lake mostly to take pictures, because it wasn't the nicest day for boating.
It looks like the tree in front of the cottage got caught in a storm in the last few days. The branch on the ground in the middle of the picture seems to have come from it.
