I'm usually that lucky soul who gets to work over the long weekend. That's the beauty of working retail ;)
However, after covering the owner's two-week vacation at the store, I was fortunate enough to score an entire weekend off work - woohoo!!
What better way to spend a long weekend, than sitting in the sun on a dock in cottage country?!
Amazing how different two areas of Ontario can be. In one area, I was looking at horses and cows out the passenger window, and 2 hours later I was back in Toronto with all of the smog, cars and tall buildings.

Despite the sunscreen, I got a burn on my chest, outlining the V shape :P
|I took shotgun on the boat|
|Pretty water and trees|
|This was my paradise for 4 days|
|This is where I spent most of my time|
|Dragonfly on the dock|
|Lookout in Haliburton|
|Loons over the water|
|Pretty pic over the water|
|Kashagawigamog Lake - what a mouthful|
|Don't see this every day...|

|Haliburton's Independent grocery store - gluten-free section|
Surprisingly, their selection of gluten-free food was quite large. However, I did find it scary that the Bob's Red Mill wheat bran was placed in the section labeled as "gluten-free" - directly below the Glutino crackers. I'm sure a Celiac person or gluten intolerant person would know to stay away but if someone was buying for a guest and didn't know any better, they may assume it is gluten-free and poison them.
I made the perfect marshmallow stick... four at once!
I don't know anyone who eats gourmet food
like this at the cottage... seriously, check out all this yummy food!!
|Rice and peas, scalloped potato, asparagus, Caesar dressing with homemade dressing, Conte's perogies and Kinnikinnick bun with butter|
|Not my plate - same as above but with bacon and sausage too|
|Not really gourmet but certainly yummy - two different kinds of cheese melted on an Udi's bagel|
|Eggs, tomato, berries, watermelon and toast with jam|
|Peas, corn, carrots and scalloped potato|
|Salad with corn, eggs, peas, tomato and avocado|
|Eggs, mixed fruit, cheese and toast with jam|
Thank you Dave and Mary for welcoming me into your cottage!

Wow! Thanks for these wonderful photos of Lake Kashagawigamog. We use to camp on this lake as kids, dare I say 45 years ago. To this day when we are experiencing a perfect summer morning with sunshine, no humidity and a lovely breeze we always say "This sure is a Kashagawigamog morning".ReplyDelete
