Wednesday August 12, 2009-At the Cottage

When I got up this morning I couldn't get into my Yahoo mail. Apparently they're having a problem because people are leaving their mail in their inboxes and not filing it. By noon I was able to get in so cleaned up my inbox although I had just done it a couple of weeks ago.

One of my readers, Joe, asked me if I only have one sister. I have two sisters, one from Toronto who summers at the cottage in Lindsay where we are now and my younger sister in Ottawa who has two children, both grown. My younger sister, Margie is the one who gets our mail and sends it off to us if it's important.

We headed off to the cottage around 2:30 this afternoon. Today was the most gorgeous day that we've had this summer. When we arrived we went down to the dock to sit and it was beautiful down there. Garth's (Betty's husband) daughter and her husband and 3 kids are at the cottage next door this week and they were out water skiing this afternoon. They're all really good at it. When they were done, Garth took us for a lovely boat ride.

On the way to the cottage I took another barn photo and the horse was just coming out the door

Here's my sister at the front of the cottage

The 2 cottage docks from the water - Garth & Betty's is the one with the gazebo on the right

Clouds in the water

We went for a walk when we got back from the boat ride and saw a couple of frogs in a mud puddle

When we came back we got dinner ready. They had really excellent New York strip steaks with baked potato, asparagus and butter tarts and ice cream. We ate down at the gazebo on the dock and watched the sun set. A great day!
