It’s that time of the year again: closing up the island for the winter, and saying goodbye to another year. This past weekend the Conovers shuttered the house and did some tree clearing to finish up the 2011 season.
We drove overnight and arrived right at sunrise.
We took a nap for a couple of hours, and then got started dropping trees.
We made good progress, and chopped down a bunch of trees.
Once we’d finished for the day, we watched the sunset.
The next day we continued on the tree work, and managed to clear a large view of the water.
Monday morning it was time to leave, so we boarded up the house,
Headed down to the boat, and took our last trip into the boatyard for the year.
Luckily May is just around the corner!
