Lake Muskoka fall colours

More Thanksgiving memories from a visit to the cottage

The Canadian Thanksgiving holiday came a little later this year but the foliage "up north" from Toronto (about a 2 hour drive) was still beautiful as ever. Our family dinner was atypical (Korean pork bone soup and sushi) but delicious! I had no luck with the fishing but with these colours, I couldn't really complain:

(note: don't try this in June, the mosquitos and black flies will make this almost impossible)

My reward for slaving away all spring and summer!

Big hugs to my sister and brother-in-law for making more memories!
