Final Trip to the Cottage

….one more trip to finally close up for the season

We got an early start to the day. It was a cloudy day with a touch of rain but the colours were spectacular.

Going to the Cottage for a Few Days

will be off grid and unable to post

I’m finally getting back up to the cottage. With no electricity or internet I won’t be posting any photos or stories for awhile. Hopefully when I return I’ll have lots of new photo and some adventures to share with you. Here’s just a taste of what I’ll be experiencing.

This Little Guy Looks Lost

….when the waves are high you know that the conditions aren’t ideal for frogs

Even though Georgian Bay is a fresh water body of water it’s not home to many creatures that you would find on smaller lakes. The beach is sandy and there are no weedy areas for frogs to spawn or find food. So how did he get here?

Here’s what the water looked like the day we discovered this little guy.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Sense of Hearing

…thanks to Cee for hosting theĀ Fun Foto Challenge

I guess photos with this theme should evoke a sound in the imagination. Here’s what I came up with.
