my favourite place

I'm allowed to start using my arm again, so one of the things I did was to organize some more photos. These are from my trip last year to our family's cabin on Boulder Lake in northwestern Ontario. It's in the area of Ontario bordered by Manitoba and Minnesota.


The fishing was bad, but I didn't care. It's fun to just be out on the lake in the fresh air. I threw this smallmouth bass back.



We went back out on the lake that evening. If this blog had smell-o-
vision, you'd be treated to the aroma of cedar trees.



Back to work tomorrow! Sigh... Thanks to N for the photos.

Crucie: my sister-in-law takes amazing pictures

P-guy: I do currently live in a city that's on the shoreline of Lake Ontario (which borders New York state); however, these pictures are from a lake that's north of Minnesota. Ontario is very large... it borders six states (in a combination of land and water: MN, WI, MI, OH, PA, NY) and is about three times the size of Texas.

Shora: it will. We will be choking on smog all-too-soon...

look at you and your new fishin' shirt! You're even touching the fish.

Natasha said...

RED ALERT, I'm so glad you and those who commented like the pictures. As you know, I am better known as the paparazzi. (grin)

I heard about your arm and I am glad to hear that you're feeling better now.

Hope to see you this weekend,
Natasha

P.S. Since I was there with you, I totally had smell-o-vision while looking at your pictures. I want to go back soon. XOX

What??? You are leaving me again for John and Natasha? Want me to dislocate your other arm? You'll have to do your 'private touches' with your feet if you leave me.

I'm definitely visiting Canada this summer.

This makes me want summer so bad. I'd get out the rod and sit back with a brew, ah! that's the Canadian life for me.

Whoops. I shouldn't have included Wisconsin in that list.
