Brigadoon


"You'll never find peace by hating, lad. It only shuts ye off more from the world. And this town is only a cursed place, if ye make it so. To the rest of us, 'tis a blessed place!"
-Brigadoon 1954


Oh Canada. 


Brigadoon is the name of my parent's lake cottage (and also a wonderful movie) and this year we ventured up yonder into the wild wild wilderness. We stopped twice overnight on the way up to go by Watkins Glen and Ithaca and a few other adventurous places.

Lovely view from the park we stopped to have lunch at on the way. Shikellamy Park.

Watkins Glen was everything Witt said it was and more.

An incredible Greek feast in Downtown Ithaca.

Witt and Ela's mad skills on the board.

Ela caught her first fish with Uncle Witt!

Piper doesn't love the water, or getting dirty or the bugs so basically we are the same person.

A new favorite, and the reason I have eaten super healthy for 3 weeks since, Poutine from a food truck in Barry's Bay. 
Gravy. Fries. Cheese.
You're welcome.

While Witt and Dad fished Mom and I colored and drank Italian white wine I bought in the bay. Lauren and Mary gave me this coloring book and I mean....Cats in Paris. Hashtag INLOVE.

Catch o' the day

Red on the dock.

Writing in my journal, coffee, and feeling anxious about big decisions this fall.

Nothing calms me down more than writing it out and giving it to God.




GSD



Pretty much where Mom and I were when the sun was out.







GSD



Eating the catch. Yum!
