Birch trees mixed in with the requisite vibrant fall colors on echo lake this past Thanksgiving weekend. Though never taking the change in colors for granted, it still is fun to see tourists arrive by motorcoach to look at what we Canadians see every year!

Broad-winged Hawk

Three Broad-winged Hawks spent a couple of weeks in August on the cottage property before flying off. They would perch atop the Birch trees along the shore, or behind the cottage at top off forest canopy like this one in the photo.

Bright and still forest of Canada

Thanks for having a look. This is the last picture taken of the fall season at the cottage. Even with 2/3 of the leaves on the ground, it was still wildly spectacular to take in all the color and shadows. The day was bright, but cool, and completely still. Another reason to love Canada.

Take A Deep Breath!

View Across Half Frozen Snow Covered Lake in Baysville

A look across the half frozen lake from the neighbor’s snow covered dock. Mild winter has kept the lake from completely freezing, and not a lot of snow. The tobogganing was awesome! – particularly under moonlight, however no ice skating this year.
