My annual summer migration starts tomorrow. We are off to the trailer in Hearst for five or six weeks.
When your son re-locates for work, to a town 12 hours away, then marries and has your only grand children in a town 12 hours away, a trailer for summer living within 15 minutes of the grand children is a must.
We spend several weeks there every summer. which gives us a sense of what it must be like to live near one's grand kids. They pop out for an after-dinner swim. They have sleep-overs. They come with Mom & Dad on the weekends for bar b ques, swimmming, fishing and all those other lakeside activities common in a Canadian, northern summer.
But there is lots of things left behind to miss while I am gone. Daily blogging is one of them. With no internet connection out at the lake, my posting is restricted to visits to town. Regular posting - and life - resumes mid-August.
In the mean time, here are some of the other things left behind when we get in the car tomorrow morning at 6 am.
