It was a busy and very stressful summer and I didn't get out to do my photography as much as I would have liked. However, I can never resist a Northern Ontario sunset. Next year, I hope to have a much more restful and peaceful summer where I am able to get out with my… Continue reading Manitouwabing Lake and Magnetawan
Life over the past few weeks has been challenging to say the least. House training a new puppy in frigid winter temperatures has not, and still is not, easy. It is getting better day by day but she still has a couple accidents in the house each day...baby steps, I know we will get there.… Continue reading Brinley Bean
Well, it's been 4 weeks since we brought our little Brinley home and let me tell you, she is one spunky little fireball! She has learned how to sit and most days has it mastered.

We have… Continue reading Muskoka Life
We have been up to the lake several times since we have opened up for the season and I am amazed at all the wildlife we have seen on our property. Just this past week, while we were sitting watching a movie with some friends, I looked out the back window and found 3 deer… Continue reading Life at the lake
This week some of our backyard florals burst into full bloom and I couldn't resist taking a few photos this morning.
A couple weeks ago while I was sitting on the sofa with the Muskoka breeze gently blowing through the open windows, I kept hearing something moving in the grass/bushes behind our place. I got up and looked out the window and found this little gem of a creature walking in the grass not too far… Continue reading American Bittern
