I drove up Saturday and cut wood for about three or four hours.  The area in front of the Finlayson House was a total mess.  For whatever reason the former owner had taken down about 15 trees.  Perhaps it was at the realtors suggestion to improve the view.  Personally, I'd rather have had the trees.  Sunday AM I woke up early and cut for a couple of additional hours.  Linda and Thomas showed up  about 11 and we moved brush for an hour and a half or two, followed by a nice two mile walk along the lakeshore and back along Hannu Trail.
