Friday Photos: Bob Houses

Every February, my town sponsors an ice fishing contest.

It is a huge deal.

During the last week of January, the bob houses begin to appear all over the lake. (The bob houses are so named because they bob in the water if they go through the ice).

Before the madness of the contest began, I walked down to the lake and was able to snap some photos. Enjoy!

    Love the bob houses. Too darn cute!

    • Aren’t they though? I especially liked the one with all the little bushes around it! 🙂 The Fishing Derby is the only thing that hasn’t been canceled in NH due to this blizzard. They are a tough bunch! I hope to get down after the snow stops to take some more photos!
