It’s raining buckets–high winds with few real breaks between storms for days now but it is slated to stop any hour, so we can get the stuff–and ourselves in the car to Canada.

This was my last look at Maple Lake. The weather was perfect–for leaving ..

…because it is sooo hard to pack up to go if it is a beautiful day. I always drag my feet when I should be rushing to get on the road, haha.

But, ya know, it is 110 degrees where R. is living and working right now. He says. “It saps you.” He’s right, even though he’s riding 10 miles on a bicycle in it 4 days a week. Once it’s 110 F or 10F  for that matter, it’s not fit for any living being, period. That is why places like Maple Lake Ontario exist.

This trip I have who R and I affectionately call “the Boy” (above) with me. All 6’4″ of him to “help open”. In truth, do most of the “big” opening tasks which include “putting in the water” (the. most. fun. you can have when opening–unless like this year, you hear that your door blew off, then anticipating the results is even more fun to be had prior to getting there).

Also, Obi is coming along.

Obi, like all dogs, loves Maple Lake.

So, see ya.

Seven-hundred-mile road trip, here I we come.
