Summer Spot, Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada
I've been intending to write a post for a few days now but just can't seem to find the time. I'm not a person that can do things in increments, I want to finish a reasonable task before moving on to another and so I can't write the post or edit pictures in preparation for the post and leave it to be finished later, it's a continuous process for me. Kind of all or nothing. You see how that works some days right?

|Morning fog on the water!|
|Heavy dew on a Mullan Leaf. |
|My dad's motorcycle that he rides probably 5 or 6 days a week all summer.|
Our weather has been awesome, coolish nights but wonderful days. It reminds us of the desert as it cools off to long sleeve/pants temperatures in the early mornings and late evening but the daytime temps are shorts and short sleeves. We are loving it!!! Fall is definitely here, the colours are showing and they are amazing!
|Mullan leaves look very fuzzy and delicate. |
|They are plentiful in displaced soil, such as the lake property owned by nephew Jason. |
|A few even manage to produce flowers! |
|I never tire of this view. Can you see the fog over there? |
We are counting the days left here in our summer location and I can tell you they are getting small. It is one month today until we start the wheels rolling. We, of course, won't be leaving Ontario just then, but probably a week in southern Ontario and the wheels will be rolling southwestward again. So a short 37 - 40 days and we will be starting our 8th year of travel.
|Cobwebs are everywhere on the ground! |
|Fall is definitely coming. |

Our summer jobs are winding down but are still keeping us busy and we are slowly starting to pack things away in preparation for leaving. A few ongoing repairs to the Igloo which will be finished in the next week or so, the Dogsled goes into the Dr's office for a check up on Tuesday and then we putz around finishing things.
|I walk past this tree at least twice a day on my way to coffee. |
|It is just gorgeous. |

Nephew Jason is still not healed from dental surgery, a month ago. It seems things on one side healed up nicely but the other has been a constant source of infection, hopefully they get that cleared up quickly. Nephew Jesse and his beautiful bride celebrated an anniversary recently, congrats!!! A big HAPPY ANNIVERSARY (#40) to Keith and Brenda. Wonderful folks, warm, welcoming, friendly and just good people. We wish them both a speedy recovery (seems they caught a bug), and many wonderful years ahead. Condolences to the Anstice Family in the passing of Ron, just last week. Riley and I have been going once a week to clean for Ron and his bride of 70 years Justeen for a couple of summers now. Ron was always ready with a story to tell, an opinion to share and a smile to flash. A handsome, hardworking fella, Ron will be missed. He was 96.

|Extremely foggy but a very warm, humid breeze coming in from the lake. |
|If you can reach 'em you can have 'em. One of the many apple trees on the farm.|
