Cottage Memories

It was another wonderful week away at the same cottage we've been renting for years. I can't describe the bone-deep relaxation I experience there, combined with a lot of energy expended swimming and kayaking, but here are a few pictures that might help give you an idea of how much I treasure this time.

The weather was glorious and changeable. So, I got to appreciate some clouds:




Baby trees on the forest floor:




And... more trees, big enough for hugging:








Time for kayaking:




There were a great number of water lilies in evidence this year. Here are some in a quiet inlet:






Happy toes:






Canoers at sunset:














And, of course, the food. Watermelon during sunbathing:




Moroccan chicken and couscous:




One grey afternoon, scones with jam and whipped cream. The scones didn't rise as much as they usually do for me, but it didn't bother us:




Butter chicken with watermelon salad:




In my opinion, the only way to do scrambled eggs is to wait till everyone is sat up before starting them. These stayed moist:




This was some good burger:



The food gives you an idea of how much energy was being used up!

Mmmmmmmmmm... we're tanned and happy.
