The cottage life

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Ottawa

We don’t have a cottage of our own, but we have family who does. This is how we spent most of Saturday. (Let’s not even mention what happened on Sunday morning when we attempting to sleep in/recover from a day of sunshine and utter indulgence.) Sigh.

Hmm, here is this perfect spot? It looks like it’s really close to the water.

It was just outside of Renfrew! Lovely area and a very quiet lake. (Constant Lake, I think it was called.)
