Last weekend my wife and I headed south to Lake Norman, North Carolina. The in-laws rented a small cabin on the lake for the week and we figured we visit for a couple days. Here are a few snapshots of the trip!
This is one of my wife's bridesmaids and her new son Quinn. Isn't he cute? We stopped to have lunch with them before we rolled into town. They live only a few minutes away.
Here's the view from the back porch of the cabin. It was located 50 yards or so away from the lake.
This is my father-in-law rowing in his shell just off of our dock. This was just after sunrise.
I'm preppin' to do some fishing.
Here's one of the channel cats I caught. It was a decent size. The next one I caught actually stabbed with one of his stingers and caused me to bleed all over the dock. Nice, right? lol
We rented a boat for an afternoon and drove around Lake Norman. It really is a very pretty place and I highly recommend it if you're looking for a relaxing vacation. The prices are outstanding in the off-season.
Here's my father-in-law throwing in a line from the boat. He's got his rally cap on.
Perhaps my wife's favorite part of the trip... our friend the turtle. She fed him bread.
Here's my father-in-law and I preparing some turtle soup. Just kidding! We were peeling shrimp for dinner. Such a messy job!
So, yeah... Lake Norman comes highly recommended!
