Its been a while since I last posted and I did promise one more so this will be it for the duration of the summer.

The past couple of weeks have been spent getting settled in, taking care of a number of things that required attention and spending some time with family. The weather has not been nice, lots of cold rainy days, cold nights and very little sunshine. The snow that was peeking from the north side of the hills and from under the trees has gone now but the ground remains cold as there is very little growth. The leaves are starting to appear now, ready to spread open and offer us their beauty and their shade. The daffodils have been blooming for only a very few days now. The sun has made an appearance only a few times since our arrival and today is a perfect example of the days we’ve had so far. A hint of sun followed by periods of rain and drizzle, the sky brightens only to fade once again into over cast grey and dull uninspiring skies. The rain falls vary in duration and strength but I wouldn’t want to be outside long, even in rain gear as it would be cold and damp even without getting wet. Not such nice weather.

We have managed to visit with most of our family members up here and even managed a visit with Randy and Linda who will be starting their own adventure in just a few days. Every one seems to be doing well and have survived the winter, cold and ugly as it was here.

Riley and I have been enjoying a very nice quiet time while managing to accomplish a few chores that we have been able to strike off the list. We hope to accomplish a couple of more before the end of the month and then just enjoy some leisure time.
|Still some snow when we arrived, the same shots about a week later.|
|That is ice you can see across the bay, piled up in places on the other shore. The cold waters of Georgian Bay as the ice has only recently left before these photos.|
We hope all of our friends are doing well, healthy, happy and enjoying your time where ever you may be spending it. Have a safe summer and we hope to catch up with you again in the fall.
Until next time… take care, be safe,
