Well, after two months at our cottage in Quebec it is time to readjust to the work routine. Despite some concern with family members and their health issues I can say that it was an enjoyable summer. A new wood stove and a faster and more powerful outboard motor added to the experience. And of course, spending time with family and friends gave added value to our summer experience. I will miss the steamy hot days, the warm nights, the late night swims, the freaky summer storms, the wonderful home-cooked meals, conversation over drinks late into the evening, hikes into the nearby bush, our side trips to Manawaki, Ottawa, Shawville and Renfrew and season 2 of Castle.
