A Tour of the Lake


Jeff and I took a very crisp (It was 12°C!) cruise along the lake today.  I wanted to capture some of the lovely little cottages that dot the shoreline.  Most, on this lake, are modest and quaint, lived-in and just the slightest bit worndown.  From what I can gather, the lake is fairly old-school, most abodes passed down within the families who started here decades ago.  It feels historical and lovely.  Primary colours.

  1. Is there anything more emblematic of cottage relaxation than a Muskoka chair? *Sigh*

    The surroundings are lovely - thanks for taking us on a photographic trip.

  2. No. There isn't. They are shockingly comfortable. But maybe because of all they mean, rather than their actual structure.

  3. The blue door on the yellow cottage is adorable.
    I hope we can come for a visit. We must work it out.

  4. Yeah, we're gonna paint our doors and shutters soon - Maybe blue!

    We must make it work this year. The boys will LOVE it up there.

  5. A "Muskoka" chair? Hmmm, I've never heard of that. In America that style is referred to as an "Adirondack" chair {invented by Teddy Roosevelt for his home - Sagamore Hill}.

    Thank you for the photo-tour along your tranquil waters.

  6. Yes.
    Muskoka.
    Adirondack. The Muskokas are an area here where people summer. Our cottage is there. So, like the Adirondacks . . . and we appropriated the term.

  9. My goodness, that's just gorgeous. Every bit of it.

    I love the focus and depth you've used in the photos, they have the look of tilt shift photography.
