Its a rainy summer day in Val des Monts

Plum porch in the rain

Sitting on the screened-in porch is really all I plan to do today.

I usually start the day by jumping into the lake for my morning swim but today, i’m having a break and enjoying the view. The operatic loon performance was in in full force last night.  The mysterious night calls are one of the many pleasures of falling asleep at the cottage.That song put me to sleep last night but not before watching too many episodes of White Nights on my phone via downloaded Netflix.

 

The A-frame is rented this weekend

And for the next week until August 3.  The family here this weekend seem to be thoroughly enjoying themselves.  There has been echoes of laughter from next door.  They’ve been out in the kayak and enjoying the view from the balcony … upper and lower.

Since everything seems to be going well, we may hop in the car and head downtown for a movie tonight.  Val des Monts is so close to Ottawa and Gatineau (Hull) we can go out for an evening and be back in plenty of time to hear the loons and get a good night’s sleep.  Here, no matter how hot it is downtown we most always use a blanket.
