Off To Hearst

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.

Your summer sounds like a lot of fun! Will check into your blog now and then to see your Northern postings and perhaps get updated about yarn shopping and knitting at the hardware store!
