In a matter of hours we’ll be departing for our final trip to Maple Lake Ontario this year. It is our third and we are both looking forward to it and a bit wistful that the time has flown by so fast that we must bid goodbye until next year. I took  the shot above with my smartphone and I must say it’s the only photo so far that I’ve been able to snap that is worthy of sharing! I did make it my wallpaper so I can show off tho’. Hee.

Have a super Labour Day weekend! If you are on Maple Lake, be sure to stop by and say hello–we are at  the bottom of the hill to the left, off of Frank’s Lane. Just look for the best view of the lake. 🙂

As usual, there are plenty of activities happening in the Haliburton Highlands in the upcoming week. As usual as well I’m  kicking myself asking why the heck don’t I just stay put once I get up there instead of driving back and forth– this year it’ll be 6 times? I mean who wouldn’t really rather be at Maple Lake than sitting in the sweltering suburbs of Chicago? Anyway, next summer should be more normal in that we won’t be  having a major construction project going on and so can combine two trips into one which will be very nice to say the least. Speaking of ‘nice’, have you seen the extended weather forecast for the Haliburton Highlands? I happen to have it right here:

That is one lovely weekend coming up!

This summer’s weather has been so interesting with the majority of nighttime temperatures not getting anywhere near down to ‘normal’ cool which I must admit I like now that the days of having a cast iron stove in the kitchen with a blazing fire every morning to take the edge off the chill are long past us. It does still look a tad on the dry side though so I’m not getting my hopes up for being able to have a single nighttime campfire this year. We’ll be pulling in late next Friday night. I really hope to get away A.S.A.P. this time but one can never count on it between Roger’s and my crazy work schedules. Fingers crossed!

Update! HALIBURTON HIGHLANDS – Our Holidays – What’s Happening THIS WEEK & This Month So Far – Maple Lake ONTARIO PHOTOS #haliburtonhighlands #algonquinhighlands

Doing laundry earlier tonight in anticipation of the run up to and the Canada Civic holiday on August 6. This is West Guilford between Green Lake and Pine Lake. This is 2 lakes from our lake, maybe 4-5 miles?

So we are here on Maple Lake and everything is going well.
We had a break in the drought with a decent thunderstorm–not long in duration but it has perked things up.
I’m glad no one has any fires though because you can see how tough the summer of 2012 drought has been on this part of the Algonquin Highlands of Ontario.

We (spouse & I) are hitting the major projects–the siding of the cottage (done! by hired guns–now lots of touching up and some minor repairs –fingers crossed–that spouse is doing). Also to-do: replacing most likely, the water pump–for a number of reasons including the one we are using is someone else’s spare (!) and it’s getting ever-more ‘hinky’, plus the building of the swim raft (I hope) as early into our just-under-2 weeks here as we can.

There are definitely some really cool events that I hope to be able to hit up in a few days. Meanwhile, get used to snaps of Maple Lake.
Today we saw the beginning of Festival of the August Moon on the Gull River in Minden–the hanging of the lanterns–I wanted to see the nighttime lighting/setting of them down the river but the aforementioned projects and making time both for a Kawartha Dairy stop and a really nice swim sort of ate up the rest of the time today.

Tried out the new telescope tonight and the full moon nearly blinded me. I’m stupid that way. Really great potential to see great constellations though–in maybe a week–and every other pretty night for the rest of the time I come up here.
Definite plans for the “Farmer’s Market” in Carnarvon and Haliburton Midnight Madness on Friday afternoon and evening, respectively.
