…creepy critters….

so….I’ve seen my share of some creepy critters at the cottage…first…too many green snakes…and a northern ringnecked snake…I was told that I’m lucky to have seen that one…while swimming in Lake Huron on the weekend a Garpike decided to swim between a friend and I…. I had to scream…we’ve had our share of spiders, moths, bats and bugs…I’m thinking that the Garpike needs to be drawn…I’ll post that one soon…yuck to all the critters!

…we’re back up north….

…back playing in the sand…we built a volleyball court and had a tremendous beach day…the waves were so large and strong that Jack lost his bathing suit…first time ever…it was quite the scene….kite sailors were out today..the wind was excellent for them…really cool how they fly through the air and skim so quickly across the lake…it was awesome to see…

…a great day!

so…the lake is calm and the sky is blue…no grey!…we’re heading to the sand to create castles, swim and catch some Zzzzz’s…we’re exhausted….the banana tent will be popped and the towels will be really wet after some swimming!

….scary stuff… a bear was just a few cottages down the road from us last night having a midnight snack….he went to two places for his dinner….yikes!

..another day at the beach…

…rather terrible weather…sometimes you can see your breath….however we’re making the best of it…we’re playing on the cafe’s computers right now..the kids are loving that…and the brownie pizzas are pretty tasty…puzzles are getting put together, movies are being watched…we watched “he’s not that into you” last night…I rated it as OK…another favourite is the two strawberry pies that we have almost eaten…yummy….so to another grey day we say “rats”…and hope for sun real soon….
