My Summer Away

I have been remiss on my posting duties of late.  I apologize but summer seemed to have had a strong pull on me.   When I visit my cottage in the north all technology and ‘city’ responsibilities get pushed away – happily.

I thought I would share with you some of the reasons why I went missing.

This is the first thing I see when I open my eyes each morning at the cottage.  The view from bed with the sun streaming in and the sparkling lake – what’s not to love!

Once up I go for an early morning ride in this vintage boat while the lake is still like glass.

Of course the early morning call of the loon is like nature’s melody that lulls you into awe and harmony.  And even more special if you happen to witness the union of adult and offspring during feeding.

Watching nature – colourful.

Observing wildlife – amazing!  Notice the little fawn I came across on a quiet walk through the forest.

Bunnies too!

An afternoon water ski!!

The magnificent spectacle following an afternoon rain shower.

And the setting sun after a wonderful day at the cottage.

What’s not to love and possibly make you forget all of life’s commitments?

  1. Pure inspiration! Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos. The trick is to conjure up those pictures of peace and harmony for a few minutes (at least) every day!
    I missed you Modmissy!

    p.s. Take heart! Summer isn’t officially over until September 21st!

  2. Thanks for sharing your little slice of nirvana. We are so lucky in Canada to have such beautiful sights nearby, but you have captured the finest with your photos and appreciation of nature’s simple gifts.

  3. Yay, nice to have you back, you’ve been missed. I’ve been wondering about the renovations but am glad to hear you have been enjoying your lake side summer vacation! I’m sure you’ve been taking it all in, repelling insects as you would technology. 😉 See you soon!
