My brother owns a place just outside of a small town on Lake Huron. He rents it out in the summer but we always spend at least one week there with most of the family. The family keeps getting bigger every year so it's hard for all of us to be there all at the same time. This year we were lucky because we were there all week while the others came and went so we got to spend time with everyone. Everyone includes my mom and dad, my sister Katherine and her husband and their two children, my brother (sans girlfriend who had to work), my youngest sister and her fiance, and of course the five of us. My friend and her boyfriend also joined us for a night.
I am very big on tradition so I
To sum up, we had a total blast. The weather was perfect, we swam in the lake numerous times daily, we did everything on my "list" (I am an addicted chronic list maker), played lots of games, drank lots of wine, ate lots of food, read books, had lots of laughs. No-one got on my nerves and I was sad each time someone had to leave throughout the week.
The only thing I am not super fond of at the cottage frommage is the shower. It's more a fragile little trickle than a shower really. It has two temps: freeze your balls off cold or scald your nips off hot. I'm not fond of either. So my plans for the evening will be a long, warm, glorious shower.
I look forward to the drive up and back every time. I love to see the fields and how the crops change from spring to early summer and then harvest time. I took a bazillion photos and I'll post them throughout the week but here are some of the surrounding countryside.
This post is just a distraction taking me away from the seventeen damp and stinky loads of laundry I have to do. For added enjoyment, occasionally a big creepy earwig or spider who hitched a ride to the city crawls out to greet me. Well hello there.
