Below are a few more photos from our time up at the cottage earlier this month. As you can tell, not every day was rainy or overcast. The sun did put in an appearance every now and then.
I Can - Canoe?: Late day sunshine never fails to make everything more beautiful, with its rich, saturated colours and golden hues. These two canoes kind of hide in the shadows of the surrounding glow.
If A Tree Falls: If a tree falls into the lake during a storm, and there's nobody around to see or hear it, does it still make a splash? This birch landed a safe enough distance from the dock, changing the landscape to the right of the cottage.
Quacking Up: The new tree attracts groups of Common Mersangers as a place of rest during their journey along the shoreline.
You Keep Me Hanging On: An absorbing likeness of the Canadian flag hangs from the clothesline in that lovely sunlight.
Feeling Chipper: Nearby, a curious chipmunk watches Benny relate to Roxy. You'll have to stay tuned to see that photo and to find out who Roxy is.
Take A Load Off: More golden light streaks across a wheelbarrow parked up against a tree.
Dinnertime!: I don't think I've ever heard it used to call anyone in for dinner but Frank tells me that there were many a time he knew to come in from fishing because he could hear this bell wherever he was on the lake.
The next few posts will be scheduled as we're heading back up to the cottage for a little while. Please wish us plenty of this sunshine! (OK, wish me the sunshine. Frank prefers overcast days for fishing).
In a few days, I'll introduce you to Roxy.
