I Should Live In The Woods Somewhere

Someday I will become a recluse. I will just pack up and head into the bush. Into a lovely, quaint cottage hopefully. Here is the sweet cottage I hide in all weekend with some of my old BFF’s. It rained. A lot. But it was wonderful and made my heart feel like it was going to explode.

The lake we stayed on. This was one of the breaks in the incessant rain fall.

Proof of the sweet rain.

Amazing cottage art. Is it art? Ya it’s art.

If there is any question about a cottage being ‘cottagey’ enough, just put a fake canoe/boat bookcase in it.

Believe it or not, I utilized the blue slide. I’ll let your imagination sort that one out (average temperature last weekend was somewhere between 13 and 17 degrees!)

I was gifted this beaut

I am jealous of myself. I wish I could go back.

  • So next time I’m coming with you. Cool?

  • I totally would have braved that cold water to go on that slide! Me <—- major kid at heart.

    It was an amazing weekend. Thank you for helping me relive the beauty of that place with your pictures.
    PS Nice type writer!

    You’re so funny! What a great place to retreat with BFF’s. I grew up with a ‘very rustic’ cottage in my life, only it was on the ocean, the raw West Coast of the Charlottes (nka Haida Gwaii). I don’t live there anymore, but the memories are vivid and dear!

    Sigh. I want to be there 🙂

  • I could live at a cottage all summer – Victoria Day to Labour Day! As long as there’s indoor plumbing, I’m good!

  • This looks so lovely. The more cottage-y the better, I say.
