The Cottage in May

We opened the cottage yesterday and it is still May! This is probably the earliest that we have made it out to  the the cottage in over a decade.

You know, life changes. When we first got the cottage and our kids were babies we got out there at random times... We only really had to work around Bob's work schedule. Then the days came when I was working too and then the kids were busy with school. Next it was taking time for spring extra curricular events, like Girl Guide Camp and June dance recitals. Then came the time when they had their first jobs which we needed to be accommodate.

Now everyone can kind of come and go and they can do their own thing.

We got the boat launched and all went well. Everything was the same as we left it at the lake cottage except the island dock is really needing some serious  repairs after the winter. We also have to get a new roof  up this year but that is no surprise to us.

Jasper, the dog, was delighted to find himself at the lake once again. He was so excited to put on his lifejacket and he hopped on the boat before we were fully ready to head over to the island.

Once we started to move you could just see how blissed out he was sniffing the breezes coming over the lake!

He was happy to once again run wild around the island and to woof at the Canada Geese that must be nesting somewhere near the beach.

I think we were all thrilled to be back there after the long winter season.

 The sun shines different ways in winter and summer. We shine different ways in the seasons of our lives.
