I squeezed a few more days of vacation to come up to Manitoulin Island with my family. Rest, food, games, walks and wine. Mostly rest. The island is a gentle and beautiful place. For some reason, this year, I'm wanting more of the gentle and beautiful than I'm going to get. But I sure am appreciating the moment.
The shed and clothesline.
The turtle family working on their tans in the middle of the pond.
Sunlight on new apples.
Daisies and Black Eyed Susans in Dad's garden.
The entrance to one of the local trails in South Baymouth.
I'm officially on holidays. I even took (almost) an extra week at the last minute.
I hope to blog. I've got a couple of posts in my head I want to get out there before I leave Sunday. I've got a fancy new phone that should facilitate quicky picture posts at the very least. After that, who knows? I've gotten so I don't know how to do anything online without an instant wireless connection. And where I'm going, it's all "huh? wireless what?"
