Mosaic Monday - The Cottage Life

Ahh, life at the cottage .... not ours because we don't have one, but at a friend's in Gravenhurst.  Cooper's Falls is on the bottom left, Bella returning with her tennis ball from the lake, their hot tub in a clearing and some views of the lake.
It was a real treat to find a luna moth resting on the deck rail in a shady corner; isn't it a beauty?  One photo I didn't get was the big wild turkey in a tree beside the road on the way home.  It was dusk and already roosting  for the night.
There are many bloggers that have fun putting together collages and you can find them at Mary's Little Red House.

  22. The moth certainly is something. Very cool. Although I knew it was a bug right off, I'd no idea what kind. I've never seen anything like quite like it.

  36. There is no place, anywhere, quite like Ontario cottage country in the summertime. I'm still reeling though, at the thought of the lake in the media centre in Toronto!
