One Last Kick At Summer!

Last weekend we went to our friend's cottage. We have gone there for about 16 years and it is usually in July but this year we just couldn't get our schedules together till now.

I learned that you can enjoy a cottage just as much in early fall as you can in the heat of July. We slept well during the crisp night and enjoyed the fireplace all the more, not to mention our coffee!
We went canoeing and kayaking, and really appreciated the bright warm sun....once we took off our canoeing gloves! I caught a few early and anxious maple leaves tinged with red...always exciting!
Dave went for a long bike ride and a run, followed by a swim...but as you can glean from the photo, he was a little reluctant!

Fall and friends, you can't beat that!

My God in Heaven, I gotta get out of Texas. i love it, but I still can't imagine for the life of me why anyone would have settled here 150 years ago. its Flat hot dry, and these days, crowded.
Like one big Tokyo Nightmare.

I’m glad you were able to connect with family and friends at the cabin before winter sets in and enjoyed the photos. Love the ‘colorful’ changes taking place in the scenery that I don’t get to see much of here at the beach in So Cal. I shared our BLUE SKIES at Sacred Ruminations today along with a bit of Haiku ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

I'll bet that is some cold swimming;
best build the fire and stay toasty.
Sounds nice.

Your sooooo right; nothing can beet neither fall or friends as well as combined with being out in the nature - so refreshing, nice, clean and quiet.

To make is short MOI: we are two of a kind, but then again, I'm a Norwegian :-)

Wishing you a great end to your week.
