No cell phone, no wallet, no keys

, slow down time
When we descend the hill to the cabin on Sand Lake in northern Minnesota we enter a zone of no cell phone service. I also take my wallet and my keys and put them aside. It’s slow down time, I don’t need them anymore.The railroad tie steps have been there for generations, the hand rail is covered in lichen. Things move slower at Sand Lake.
Although half of the cabin is made of logs, we do have electricity and running water. There are three rooms and a loft and beds for eight.
The old boat house sits near the waters edge. The lower level is storage, the upper level will hold beds for up to six in a pinch, but is better suited for two.
This last winter the ice pushed up the anchoring point for the dock. The water is a little high so we must wait for a dryer time to fix it.
We come here not so much for the water or the view, but for the solitude and the memories.
