Flander's Lane, Washington Maine

Flander's Lane is named after my grandfather, Roland Flanders. It is a short dirt road with a few camps set on Washington Pond. There are tales that Flander's Lane is haunted. At least that's what my grandfather says.

Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Cooking in a Dutch OvenSo here's the finished cement deck, fire pit, and Dutch Oven I cook in. So far I've cooked outside every night, and it's been great. Dad made me a little bench out of the wood from an old crab apple tree he had to take down at his place. I intend to carve some wood spoons and forks out of the apple wood as well.

I've ordered some more Lodge cast iron cook ware, and I just can't wait for it to get here. This is heaven. Outside, by the lake, cooking up a storm feeding my family in my brand new fire pit.

My cousins visited last weekend with their kids, and we all grabbed a hand full of clay out of the lake and made little clay pots and critters, and fired them in the fire after I made burgers for everyone. It looks like I'm going to have lots to do here. Sure, we don't have hot tap water (we need to get a new water heater), or a working shower, but we have the lake which is tested to be safe for drinking water. There are three summer camps on the lake that drink the water as well. We just boil it, then ozonate it with our fancy ozonator. I'm really happy living this way. Well, it's getting late, better hit the hay.
