Last Long Weekend of Summer 2016

The past summer we have had several great weekends as very good friends of ours have invited us out onto their boat located in the 1000 Islands.  The past few days we had another excellent final trip for the year.   Can't thank them both enough for such a great time on their 2nd home this summer.  A few shots from this past weekend.


We got very lucky and found a mooring ball to hook onto and the decision was made very quickly to stay the night.


The 1000 Islands are a lovely spot with many hidden coves and passages.



I managed to catch a candid shot of our gracious hosts while we treated them to supper for a change.


Sunset through a lantern.


The golden hour approaches.



Next morning as the sun kinda came up.
Sunrise was a bit of a fizzle but still got a bit of a golden sky. 


Couple of neighbouring boats.  Very peaceful spot.


As the fog rolls across the water as it burns off in the morning sunshine.

A Lovely Day for a Paddle

Jen and I finally got out for a paddle last Saturday.  Although I've been out, it's her first trip of the summer.    All images show with my Fuji X100s.

Yes yes yes, I need to start writing :-/

I really must sit down and fill everyone in on happenings around the homestead.   Been very busy with the new (to us) house, Jackson (had to remove his eye), trip to Algonquin, boating with a friend on the St Lawrence and enjoying summer.  Unfortunately no trip to Bermuda this spring but planning on 3 weeks in the fall.   Couple of pictures from the other day - just a few critters in the backyard.

Torturing the Pets

Home sick so tortured the pets with the X100s for a bit;






New Addition to the Fur Family

Just realized that I had only posted pictures of our newest addition to FaceBook and nothing to the blog or G+.

Wookiee (formerly Pippy) came to us a few weeks back from Ottawa Dog Rescue and she has been a wonderful addition.  Very tiny, weighing only 5.4lbs, we're looking to fatten her up.  Two of the cats are responding well but the two, who normally take time with new additions and then become there best buds, are still taking some time to figure her out.   She is smaller then each of the cats!   Full of energy and loves play time.   She desperately needs a hair cut and is wearing the cone because she won't stop licking where her spay incision and has created a bit of a scab.

 
Still a little shy of the camera





 The family minus the 4 cats

Big brother Jackson still isn't too sure about this :-)

Playing on a Snowy Day

Couple of shots of Kitten and Gizmo today being all lovey dovey.  Normally they are at each others throats after sitting together for a while;



Last summer we were in Bermuda for a couple of weeks and all I did was B&W photography during the trip and edited on an Ipad mini. I always meant to go back and do some processing after I got home on the bigger screen and promptly forgot all about it. Played with a few today.
