I had a great time at the cottage, well minus getting seriously ill half way through. Still no idea what caused my illness but I am all better now :) It did prevent the first trip to Bracebridge but we managed to get there on our way home.

Now if I could find some empty wall space...
Here is my Grandmother and I in Bracebridge (at last). The week started out extremely hot but by Sunday had gotten surprisingly like Autumn, hence the outfit thrown together with the only warm clothes I brought.
I took a LOT of pictures during the week, most of which I haven't gone through yet. I couldn't believe my good luck at taking this Hummingbird picture. He just sat down and started drinking off a leaf. (Bonus points to anyone who noticed the title of this post was borrowed from the last issue of Harrowsmith)
