The first week our son and three grandchildren were here at the cottage so we slept on our boat at the marina...
we had full busy days with swimming, crafts and pool time.
Our grands made fast friends with the neighbour's grandchildren from the cottage across the street. They had oodles of fun together...made some great memories.
After the family left it was very quiet but we manage to keep ourselves entertained with the usual routine...
lazy mornings with our mugs of coffee
gazing out at The Salish Sea watching for sea life and birds
our habit of looking for 5 ferries at once...we call it Ferry Yachtzee!
I finished this fabulous book last night before dinner
will be starting the next one sometime today!
reading our books
walks along the beaches
beach combing for sea glass
going to the Farmer's Market
swimming in the pool
eating tasty simple meals
Cottage Fruit Crumble
4-5 cups fruit
I used blueberries and Gravenstein apples
place in a buttered deep ovenproof pie pan
add a few tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
a sprinkle of cinnamon
1 cup flour
1/2 cup room temperature butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
Cut the butter into the flour
when blended add the brown sugar
Cover the fruit mixture
Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes
Serve with ice cream, whipped cream or yogurt.
going to bed early
waking soon after the sun rises
a simple routine
We saw 2 humpback whales swimming past the cottage last night!
We shared the binoculars...saw their water spouts and they were breaching!
This morning the sun is shining and the seas are calm...
we will let the day unfold slowly while we quietly sip our coffee.
I will hit publish before I have my second cup of coffee on the deck...
