vacation at the cottage

We spent the last week of the summer at the cottage. We had some bad weather at first but it improved a lot. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery, the company of family and friends and some delicious food and drinks!

I tried to keep the photo count down but it was difficult! The photos you see here are only 10% of what I took!

Jane spent the whole week searching for seaglass. These are some of the pieces she found the first day.

The full moon caused some very high and low tides which were fascinating.
