Walloon Lake 2014: Then and Now

As I’ve mentioned before, part of the reason that we selected Walloon Lake for this trip (and other visits) is that many of our generations of cousins and siblings spent two weeks each summer at Walloon when we were kids. I was born in April 1974, adopted into the Goudie family a few months later, then immediately left for induction into the Walloon gang.

So that got me thinking

Always a dangerous thing, I know. As I review the hundreds of photos from this year’s trip, I saw many parallels in pictures from those trips in the ’70s and 80’s to the pictures of today. What follows are picture pairs of new followed by old.
