Cottage Report

Went up one night with the dog.  Mainly to do some work, and get a lot of white oak rings for the wedding.  We are going to do table numbers with them.

Nice and hot, with very cool nights.  When I came, they had experienced some thunder storms that were super-strong.  Knocked out the power.  No winds but very intense lightning.

ps.  here are oak rings ready for processing.

Resuming cooler weather

Strong polar air is coming down on us.  The Atlantic belt is just going straight through.  Good working weather for the cottage.

Weekend in Muskoka

We have relatives up there, and did the whole shebang.  The one rainy day, we went on the boat tour.  This is the sister ship to the steamer.  Nice tour, but all you see are the ridiculously over-built permanent homes there.  No more quaint cottages.  They are fighting people wanting to build huge condo towers, and the cell towers are disguised as trees.

The deer flies were absolutely horrible.
