Dogs + water = fun in the sun

I was enjoying a lakeside sunset on the deck reflecting on the day when my neighbor, Christy, glided by on a kayak with her dog, Jake, standing sentry up front. As she rowed, the rhythmic back and forth of her paddle didn’t seem to deter Jake. He stood rigid on the bough, taking in the […]

A day in the life of a Logan Martin landmark

It’s a place that would make Jimmy Buffett proud. Surrounded by family and friends and scores more of adopted family and friends, this tiny island in the middle of Logan Martin Lake is like the star of the singer’s tune, Cheeseburger in Paradise – “heaven on earth with an onion slice.” On this Saturday afternoon […]

Paddle boards growing in popularity

Modes of travel are many along the waters of Logan Martin Lake. By boat, by personal watercraft, kayak or canoe, we tend to see them all. And while we’ve been seeing more and more kayaks in sloughs and out on the lake, it looks like the next big thing may be stand up paddle boards. […]
