July could be considered the month of fireworks in North America as both Canada on the 1st and the United States on the 4th celebrate anniversaries of their formation as countries. This year will mark 150 years for Canada!
Where ever and when ever you enjoy lights in the sky this month do so responsibly.
The more daylight we have the slower the sun seems to set. Happy summer.

Typically ice leaves the lake in front of our place some time between late April and early May. We eagerly await this change.

It’s always bittersweet for us to have summer come to the end. Because we work seasonally, the 7 days per week, from late spring to mid fall gets tiring and the slower pace of the off season is a welcome change. However we are sad to lose warm, sunny days to cooler, damp, shorter ones.
We are thankful to be living this life and take pleasure in each day at the lake.
Summer is flying by! Hope that if you haven’t already spent time on or near a body of water, you will soon.

The ice left our lake April 24th which is just a bit early in the range of normal.
It was unspectacular.
Some years, we are treated to delicate ice crystals dancing up on our shore line, some years winds push chunks of ice up as if there was a bulldozer on the other side of the lake. No matter how long it takes or how it looks and sounds in the process, the end result – beautiful blue – is one of my favourite views.
