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.
