Yes, they rented sail boats, canoes & small motor boats/ This was May of 1975. The motor boats were a bit bigger than the water sprrites they now rent. Campers also swam in the lake water back then. It seemed quite clean then. The area where the deer is resting is just to the right as you walked towards the boat dock. Further down the beach there was the beginning of a swamp trail. It was sort of spooky but fun and safe. People liked to rent canoes for rides along a nice stream near that swamp trail. There always seemed to be loads of things to do and lots of Disney activities. I guess, since there was only the Magic Kingdom and no other park then Disney made sure there was pleanty of fun family stuff to keep us all busy at FW.

My old girl

This is Brandy.

She's 15 now and has been an avid camper her entire life. On Sat. she was diagnosed with advanced liver cancer and I took this picture of her that afternoon. It's been an emotional few days to say the least. Enjoy your pets.....you never know what's waiting around the corner.

That's so sad. We lost a collie to cancer. We had her for 10 wonderful years.

Susan,
What a gorgeous girl Brandy is! So sorry to about your "baby"'s illness. I know too well the heartbreak in losing a beloved pet. My dogs are my kids, so losing them is losing my family. I lost my "baby" two years ago. He was 15 1/2 when I had to put him down. I was devastated. I'm now facing the same situation with another "child". She's not terrible right now, but we can see it coming. She's a Rottweiler and she'll be 12 in 2 months (which is old for a Rottie). I can see her getting "old" fast. I've been taking tons of pictures lately and spending as much time with her as I can! I will be thinking of you and wishing you lots of .

Donna, Love the pic of your dog and cat stretching out their back legs. When one of our pups does that we call it "bunny butt", and they start wiggling and showing off. The bunny does it all the time, so that's where the name comes from. When both pups do it at once we call it "parallel bunny butts". It's fun to see this is not unique to our household!

Ok. I have a couple to share. I have posted both of these elsewhere but they fit the topic here too good to not post. The first is of our rolling menagerie on our first visit to FW: two dogs, a parakeet, and a bunny. How's that for making the most of the $5 pet loop surcharge!!



And this one is on our last day of the same trip. Our neighbor surprised us with some yummy blueberry Mickey muffins (thanks Teresa). The pups seem to be under the delusion that if they are cute enough they'll get some!
