A Cottage Break

by - Monday, July 16, 2012



We escaped the city for a few days to enjoy sunny afternoons and cool nights up at the family cottage. The sweltering temperatures this summer have meant that the air is filled with buzzing flies and stinging mosquitos unfortunately. But we could escape to the safety of the lake...

and enjoy a cool dip. This little girl had no problem swimming around weeds and squishing her toes in the soft lake floor. Mom on the other hand realized that the older she gets, the more a City girl she becomes... I'll wear the water shoes, thank you very much.


It was good to get away and catch our breath.

    No, sadly no fireflies. We couldn't stay outside when it got dark... so so so many mosquitoes :(

  9. Lovely cottage!  Hope you all had a blast and you got in the water ok with your water shoes.  Hope the flies situation die off a little when I head north for my camping trip in a couple of weeks.  Wish me luck!

    It's good for the soul to get away and put your feet in the lake for awhile, isn't it.

  11. Looks like a lovely time away - I love the action pics of C in the water. We have lots of family with places in cottage country in Ontario - we need to get out there sometime!

    I hate squishy lake bottoms!! I am much more of an ocean girl, but looks like Chloe will be a fish in any water! Looks like your cottage time was good.
