We headed North on Saturday to check the cottage and have a weekend with nothing but the big beautiful North to entertain us. Not telly, no Internet, no phone service. I baked pies, and Belgian waffles with maple syrup we purchased from a Mennonite man right from the back of his horse and cart on the drive up, and spent the rest of the time faffing around with my camera. We saw a beautiful hawk on the way up, but it misjudged the wind and speed and was hit by a car in front of us.
The sunshine on the ice was like diamonds....brilliant and blinding.
And then to end our day, we were treated to a Super Moon. 13% larger than normal, something that occurs only occasionally, it was huge on the horizon, and bright. It illuminated the entire harbour. Did you think people seemed a little crazier last night....when I worked in the hospital we always knew when the full moon was happening......I wonder how it was with a Super Moon.!
