Friendly Friday – Summer Traditions

,,,thanks to  Sandy for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge

Summer traditions may be on hold this year as we’re still not allowed to go to the cottage. Hopefully we’ll hear in the next few days when Christian Island opens up to lessee holders. When it does there will be quite a few restrictions, like no friends and only immediate family will be allowed on the ferry.

Having said that we’re still able to barbeque in the backyard and go for walks through the parks. Some of these photos are from years past.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Vanishing Point

…thanks to Cee for hosting The Fun Foto Challenge

The vanishing point is where the road ends at the horizon, or river, pathway, row of trees, or anything else that gets smaller the further away it is.

Labour Day – The End of Summer?

….I think not

For many Labour Day signals the end of summer; children return to school, cottages are frequented less often, new TV seasons begin, fall classes are opening up and the days are becoming shorter. The weather, however, is anything but fall like. In fact, we’ve been experiencing very hot and humid conditions. I feel sorry for the teachers and students who returned to school this week without the benefit of air conditioning (most schools here don’t have it).

Traditionally the Labour Day is the final day of the CNE and the last day of the Air Show. I attended the CNE on opening day and I watched the Air Show from the park at the end of my street, along with dozens of people from the community. It wasn’t the best day to watch it but I had been at the cottage for most of the 4 day show.

Here are some photos from the last official weekend of summer (maybe not official, summer doesn’t end till Sept 21) from the cottage and the Air Show.
