Anxious for a view like this again! In reality, our lake is still covered with more than a foot of hard packed snow insulating more than 2 feet of ice! Temperatures are not forecast to be above freezing for another week. We’ve had snow since October 25th. Spring can not come soon enough.
Blessed Easter, everyone!
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.
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.
The area in which I live has been designated by our provincial tourism body as “Sunset Country”. We regularly get spectacular vistas throughout the year. Of course, those over the water are most beautiful because of the duplication created in the reflection. Part of my daily routine includes checking the west sky for colour as the sun dips below the horizon. Last June we were treated to one of the most colourful skies I have seen. The processors in my camera had difficulty dealing with the vibrant hues.
