Easter on ice, 2013

Hello world!

Hello world!

Picture this. Ice fishing over 280 feet of water on Lake Superior. Floating on 18 inches of ice.  Convinced by husband to leave warm house on Easter morning. No one else on ice, except one lone snowmobiler. Everyone else at church.

We celebrated Easter Services in tent.

Husband snapped this picture.

Coffee was enjoyed in the fellowship hall.

The fish have not risen. Yet.

    We used to always X-C ski on Easter. No one would be around. Super Bowl Sunday is also a good day to get out.

  3. I love it! Happy Easter!

  4. sybil says:

    Wonderful to spend that peaceful time together.

  5. Heather says:

    Perhaps all the fish are attending Easter services elsewhere 😉
    Have a happy, happy day – ice fishing or no!

    You guys are so awesome! What a most blessed way to spend Easter! Spending “real” time with God!!!

  8. Love it. At 8 AM as we headed to church for both services, since the youth (including ours) were providing music, I can assure you I had a couple teens who would have gladly traded spots with you :-). Happy Easter, Kathy!

    I always get nervous about the 280 feet of water and the 18 inches of ice…and the floating thing….but as long as YOU had fun… Me? I spent the day reading and watching sunshine emerge…and thinking about spring. Happy Easter to you two! 🙂

    Matthew 4:18-20
    18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 20 At once they left their nets and followed him.

    You’re looking a little sleepy out there for the sunrise service. Hope you got a bite! Just returned to Breck from Denver. It’s 50 degrees but supposed to snow tomorrow.

  13. Chris Roddy says:

    Seems as.good a way as any to spend Easter morning. Hopefully, the fish will rise. Happy Easter.

  14. Sounds like a great time! I think holidays SHOULD be celebrated in a way that makes you happy. I hope you had a wonderful Sunday, and hopefully caught lots of fish! 🙂

    Kathy, what a sport you are! Happy Spring!

  16. Susan D says:

    This is just fantastic! The picture is soooo you, too!

    Cool, but that 18″ is not enough strength to get me off dry land, no matter how cold. Glad you enjoyed it, enjoying life is the only way to do anything!!

  18. I love it! My husband would be a little jealous. Ice fishing season is just about over here, though we did see a brave (and possibly kooky?) soul standing out on the questionably frozen bay on our way to church today. Glad to know Lake Superior is still nice and icy. 🙂

  19. Katie says:

    How fun! Except how cold!

  20. katya says:

    Happy Easter Kathy, what a fun!!!!

  21. I always think of myself as a good sport when I do things with my sons and husband that I would not normally do — you, my dear are a good sport and a saint–what a lovely way to spend Easter

  22. Dawn says:

    Happy belated easter

  23. lisaspiral says:

    Perfect way to spend the morning. Hope you had a great Easter breakfast (fresh fish for breakfast, yum) when you got home.

  24. Sounds just right, Kathy! You look like you’re having a great time. If you’re going to be surrounded by cold, snow and below freezing temps until July or so, why not just get out there and sit yourself down on the icy lake! That’s what I always say. 😉

  25. Kathy says:

    Glad you all enjoyed our “Easter services”! Thank you for reading and commenting, my friends. Happy Easter to all of you–or should that be Happy April Fool’s Day?

  26. dorannrule says:

    The fish probably froze – right? This is so funny and such a great and unique way to spend Easter! LOL! 🙂

  27. Pat says:

    This sounds like true love to me. 🙂

  28. Stacy says:

    Sounds like a perfect Easter morning to me! ❤

  29. Brrrrr! I dont know if I could handle it.
