Quite the trio: Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, Valentine's Day

After a weekend of two marvelous celebrations we face one more---casual and rather spontaneous: Mardi Gras this Tuesday--just some special sweets and last minute "preparations" of the chapel and other areas for the 6+ weeks of the Lenten season that begins Wednesday.

Two views right at our shoreline.
Dunes and an ice/snow-covered lake
that extend about 100-200 yards from shore until you hit open water.

The famous tree right outside Hermitage 2.

Word is that the plan is to move back into the dining room Ash Wednesday. Flooring is held up a little, but we're going back so that the Odyssey men can move along into the community room side of the project. Here's one of the self-service areas--almost ready.
