      This looks very nice. Another photo of the lake setting would help me to decide if I wanted to visit. Is there a beach? Welcome to HUB writing. I enjoyed this very much. You have this laid out beautifully and it is easy to understand. Keep up the great HUBS. I must give this an “Up ONE and Useful.” I'm now your fan! RJ
