The Setting Itself--On the Shore of Lake Cayuta

This is a tiny lake and we have it on Grandpa Olthof's authority that the fishing is excellent. The lawn slopes gently down to a small dock. It's rather remote here, although there is housing, or some sort of development across the lake. After the hubbub of Elmira, Odessa is very, very country to us. The day is cloudy and windy and there were a few showers, but overall, we got lucky. We had been threatened with snow. There is a large back porch and the hosts are prepared for outdoor weddings and events.
