I have been out of touch for a few days. The wedding rug and I were at the lake and it seems to be one of the few places left around here with no connection to the outside world. The cottage is four miles from the marina by boat–a distance which enhances the sense of isolation. Yes, there is a landline and a radio–but no cell coverage and no internet. It is blissful. This weekend, the fall colours were just beginning and the lake was at its most intense blue.
I spent some time in the kayak, read, but mostly I hooked and listened to the CBC. Michael Enright, my Sunday staple, had a great interview with David Carr which I recommend. I’ll post a picture of the developments in the rug soon–but meanwhile I just want to share the glories of Canada’s shield country.
