Summer's Lament

The older I become the more reluctant I am to relinquish summer. Although we’re currently experiencing the best weather we’ve had this entire record-breaking cool and wet summer, this past Labour Day weekend still felt like the unofficial end to the season.

But how delightful to be able to spend it at our island cottage with family and friends!

After a refreshing last swim, we stood in the lake beside the dock and celebrated the perfect day and some significant anniversaries and birthdays with champagne. It will be at least nine long months before I’ll be back there, so I’m looking forward to immersing myself in writing about summers long past as I work on my latest novel. And there are always photos.

  1. Hi Gabriele;
    A wonderful Blog. Although we live off Lake Ontario, I love the Muskokas as well. I've just ordered two of you HF novels and am looking forward to reading them.

    I'd also like to join the IAIC and participate in the Dec Book Fair?
