“On the Lake” – Long Weekend Pleasures


It’ the first long weekend of the summer. Victoria Day, here in Canada. For many, this is the start of cottage season, camping season, times in the outdoors. It’s the time of black flies and mosquitoes. But for me, it’s the time to just unwind. There is something about being on the water or near the water that creates serenity for me. I can sit for hours on the shore or in a canoe just being near water. The clouds are ever changing, ever moving. The day progresses from foggy mornings, to warm afternoons, and ends with beautiful sunsets.  I watch wildlife in action on the shores and in the water. Dragonflies flit and fly like crazed helicopters among the shore plants and bullfrogs share their voices in and ongoing evening chorus. Yes, another start. Time to get out there and enjoy it.
