Victoria Day Weekend

We had a lovely time at the cottage this past weekend.  

Despite the mosquitoes (some of the worst we have seen at the cottage),

and the sick dog (including a visit to the cottage vet) - she is on the mend now, thankfully.

The weather was warm and lovely.  We even slept with the windows wide open, which is an extremely rare thing for the Victoria Day long weekend.  After all there is sometimes near freezing temperatures at this time of year.

We had chipmunks to feed,

and swimming and canoeing to do.

William showed us the hole in the rock that he had found.  (Too strange that we now have holes at both cottages.  See this post for a photo of a hole in the rock at the other cottage),

There were birthdays to celebrate (William turned 16, and my Uncle turned 61).

an amazing birthday cake to consume,

 yes and even beer to drink - it was the May 2-4 weekend after all (see this post for an explanation, if you missed it).

Sigh!  Another lovely long weekend come and gone.


  1. Oh your poor little puppy; she looks so sweet curled up there. That's wierd about the newly discovered hole. Great birthday cake! Sounds like a great weekend!

  2. Hi Grace!
    Looks like you had a fun weekend! I would have loved to been there despite the bugs! My cousin lives up North (Minden) and she told me the black flies are so bad right now. But I am so jealous of the heat you guys are having! Its damp and raining here!
    I love Williams birthday cake.
    And of cours being Canadian you gotta have beer...we did!! Hope Juno is better!

  3. Grace! You are making me positively ill with cottage envy!!!

  4. That looks like a wonderful place to spend some time...sigh. And that little chipmunk! Sorry, lame Australian getting excited about 'foreign' wildlife! Hope your cute domestic animal is feeling much better.
