My love affair with the Canadian seasons.
|Still frozen - the bay we swim in.|
|Fancy a swim anyone?|
One of the best jobs of the Springtime is to go to the country and check out the state of the cottage you abandoned to the approaching winter back in the Fall. So it was on a beautiful sunny 19C day in the Laurentians we approached the place for the first time. The path has been full of thigh-high snow until very recently. We find the snow is virtually gone and we can see the damage that winter has caused. Tree tops have broken and lie in the branches, kindling for the fire is scattered all over the path down to the lake and melted snow has left everything soggy. I love that no-one has set foot here all winter and I feel like we are intruding on nature.

|Snowgeese know something we don't.|

|The ice starts to melt.|
|The same boathouse as above - last Fall.|
