Earlier on this summer we had Max. Only about 5 or 6 years only, Max was determined, and destined, to catch a fish. Off he went to the end of the dock each day to catch that elusive big one, the one that we always hear about getting away.
The excitement of catching that first one is unforgettable. The tug on the hook, the bend of the rod and frantic reeling in of that fish. Pull it up quick and steady, keep tension on the line and get it on shore before it escapes. That was Max, catching his fish. It wasn't a big one, but it was a great one! And the great one did not get away. Yah!!
By the end of the week Max had his signature on just about every fish at the end of the dock. Needless to say those fish were very well fed, figuring that another worm was well worth the trip to the surface and another poke in the lip.

Occassionally, we hear something that just says it all. Recently, we had a couple and their young son come to visit for a few days. A day after they left Foxwood we received an email from them. Reading it made us feel great and we'd like to share an excerpt from it.
"We just wanted to say how much we loved staying at Foxwood this past weekend. What a beautiful and well-maintained place you have there! It was just exquisite. Our cozy little cabin was perfect for the 3 of us and you just can't beat the view from Chip! A piece of heaven. We were in and out so fast that there wasn't much time for chatting, but we just wanted you to know that we were really soaking in all the delicious magic that Foxwood had to offer. Among all the incredible offerings and moments...the fresh eggs, the friendly deer, the loons on the lake, regaining childhood on the water trampoline, breathing in exquisite peace under the blanket of stars, the bonfires, the music, the kindness of strangers, the main lodge that makes even rainy days FUN, and that abundant, thick, juicy air that I only wish we could bottle up and keep on reserve for our year in Toronto!!....it was just such a delight"
Every now and then we receive feedback that really make us feel good. We often get great feedback, not always though, but about 99% of the time.....we are still working on that last 1%
