Yesterday was the first day in ages that we relaxed on the dock. The ever present clouds were great to watch.

Doc Bain tries out the temporary rain tarp in advance of the Trout Lake Shaker.
The burn barrel has a rival burn unit, a section of gas pipeline, and boy, is it a good burner.
Tents and tarps all ready for folks and weather.

Last night's Trout Lake Shaker was a howling success. Here Brock and Blair belt another one out indoors as we had to resort to Plan C. Plan A was aborted somewhere last month when we realized summer was taking a vacation and the monsoons were moving in. Plan B, well anyone can have a Plan B, but how many have Plan Cs that work?

Marsha's gardens are usually spectacular, as this clump of bergamont shows, and they also require lots of watering, hours in fact, everyday, except for this summer of rain. Now if only we could "sun" the gardens when it's too wet and cloudy the way we water them when it's dry, we'd be all set.

This is the end of the lake where we went fishing on Wed. evening. Calm waters make for nice reflections.

Crystal Beach on Lake Erie - This used to be a fave place years ago to "whoop it up" in the summer. It had an amusement park on the water that was the Wonderland of its time, and it attracted visitors and big name entertainers from all over.
Here are some of the posters from the past with some of the big name entertainers that performed at Crystal Beach.

Canada Day, eh! That was last week, where we celebrated on the cabin porch with Molson Canadian and Canadian music. There have been few days this past week where the flag has been fluttering without being soaked by our monsoon weather. Hopefully, summer will soon replace spring.

The Horseshoe Falls in Niagara Falls is pretty spectacular. It must be one of the natural wonders of the world.
The Maid of the Mist, number ??, is a pretty good place to be on a scorching hot day.
