Thanksgiving

It’s nice to have family around at Thanksgiving, and though everyone we wanted to have there couldn’t make it, we enjoyed what we had!

This is the “penultimate” cottage weekend for us, this year as most. One last weekend to relax and enjoy the beauty of the place.

Sheila and Kyle joined us for a walk.

Iain can't pass up a chance to undo some beaver work.
It was so beautiful and calm!

One of my favourite spots on the lake. Love this view, from Hefts' property.
There aren’t a lot of birds around now, so the woods are quiet and still.

009
Dandelions: the first to come and the last to leave.
We checked out the vinyard, where we’d been told the grapes were plentiful and not being taken by the birds for a change (few birds + a plentiful year = more grapes for us!).

This was Len’s vinyard, and he would have been so happy to have a harvest like this.

It took me about 30 seconds to find all these.
On Sunday, we prepared for dinner. Just about all set up here, waiting for people to arrive.

Sheila doing some setup.
It was a great meal, by the way. Many thanks to Dodie and Myles for an excellent turkey!
