Summer's end, and settling in for the winter.

We closed up the cottage on the 16th; and so another summer draws to a close. I took only a few pictures on the trip, and here they are:
Not a great shot, but it was a lovely sunset, and the last one we would be seeing up there for a while.  Taken on the Friday night as we headed up to the lake.

On our way home, we paused for a moment at Mud Lake.  I'm always a bit verklempt on the last day up there; I miss the place and am always anxious to go back, come springtime.

And now, a little insight into our Saturday and Sunday mornings, where we sip coffee and play on our respective computers.  The Boarder has claimed the top of the loveseat recliner as his territory.
We had him, Jezebel and Snaps all to the V-E-T on Saturday morning, and I'm pleased to report that all are well.  I'd worried we would have a hard time with Onyx, and warned Dr.Al that he had a reputation as a biter, but there were no problems.  Onyx was a perfect gentleman, and enjoyed the treats he received as a reward.

The end of a season is always a nostalgic time for me too... especially when it is connected to a favourite place. Bring on Spring!!! :)

Yes, Onyx seems pretty happy now. It will be good for us to spend more time with him, over the winter, getting to know him and letting him become more accustomed to us.
