Peace and Quiet at the End of the Cabin Season

It is a Tuesday in mid October. All the families and their children have gone back to the city.

Mosquito season is over. Not a single breath of wind disturbs the leaves that will soon blanket the woods and meadows.

The only human stirring along the edge of the little lake is me!  I capture the Peace and Tranquility with my camera, then, I do what the Grandchildren would expect me to do. I throw rocks in the water.

My new blog is at https://amusives.wordpress.com/. It will continue to feature my Photos and Stories with a Canadian perspective. My main interests are Amusing Quotations; Birds and Bugs; Plants in my Backyard; Places I visit; and Current Affairs


        • Hi Madman – Now I’ll be able to read the text besides admiring the photos! I can’t help but understand a certain amount of French because all Canadian product packaging has to be labeled in French and English. But I didn’t learn the French language in school – the French component of our country lives 2900 kilometers away!


      • I have forwarded your blog to two Canadian friends and they are enjoying reading your posts now. Yes, he would love to splash and romp in your lake but then it wouldn’t be peaceful anymore, would it?


  1. Hi,
    I love photos that show the reflections of nature in the water, they always look magnificent, and your photo shows these reflections brilliantly, very nice.

    Who can resist trying to skim stones across the water, I’m sure it is built into our DNA. 🙂

    What a lovely spot 🙂 there’s something about water, isn’t there. Very soothing.


    • Welcome to my blog, Brenda. Water is deceptive stuff, isn’t it! So soothing, yet so full of potential for other things!


  3. Awesome photo for the challenge. That’s a beautiful lake and the colors you captured are magnificent. I got a good chuckle from your tossing rocks in it. Such good fun! lol


  4. It finally snowed here. Just a bit and i found I was so disappointed when it melted by noon. It’s nice to have a change in the weather. So I found this photo a nice pause in my day. In the midst of a still dark winter, I was ready for crickets and lakes.


    • Hi Barb – I think I’d like to live some place where the snow melts by noon! No, maybe I’d like to live someplace where it doesn’t snow. In all honesty, I’d miss the change in the seasons, though!


  5. Barbara Albright says

    Yep – grandkids keep it real. Not too much stillness with them close by.


    • Hi Barbara – The grandchildren are one of the reasons we have the cabin, and though we enjoy the quiet when they aren’t there, it sure is a lot more fun when they are there!


There, I'm finished. Now it is your turn:
