Canada Day at the Cottage


Over the Canada Day long weekend, we stayed at the family cottage over in Québec. It’s so beautiful this time of year, although we found ourselves in the middle of a heatwave. Thankfully we spent most of our time in the lake. It was so hot, I sat my chair directly in the water, and to my surprise, this snake swam right past me. Amazing. It was literally about a foot away from me. (The same snake is pictured above, basking on the rocks.)

Back to Mer Bleue

It’s been a long time since we took a walk out in the woods. This winter has been long, and we have found ourselves indoors a little too much.   And even though it looks sunny in these photos, the wind was still bracing for April. As you can see, we still have some snow on the ground.

Still, our daughter was over the moon to go “to the forest,” where there is so much to explore and ask questions about. We didn’t see any beavers but we did see a few of their sweet little log homes.


We are so looking forward to warmer days, and hoping to get out to the woods more this year. If you’d like to see photos of Mer Bleue from previous years, CLICK HERE for my past blog posts.
