Ontario and Quebec 2017: Day 24 - A Quiet Day At The Lake


We were all shattered after yesterday's activity (though I am not sure why as we just sat on a boat most of the day )

Breakfast was pancakes again! Trying to use everything up!

Afterwards, it took some time for us to get moving!

J and O went down to the dock and J did some fishing - no luck though! They had a good father/son chat though! The lake was very calm this morning - in terms of flatness and people being out and about!



I read my kindle sitting on the dock and did my usual wildlife photos! F was also fishing with her nets but also no luck!



This one was smaller than the other day but O was not impressed that it was so near the house!



After a lunch of falafels, salad and pittas we headed out to our fishing island! The lake was still extremely quiet except for someone cutting wood!



O left to go back to do his gym session but we stayed on. F and J fished and I lay down, just relaxing as you do



F had a lot of success - 31 fish. Her dad - zero

They were all released after having been counted!



It had been a hazy day - but the early evening sunlight gave some eerie photos! These were taken on the island or on the way back - it didn't feel as foreboding as the pictures give the impression!



Back at the house we realised that tea pickings were slim so J and I nipped to the "depanneur" (literally to rescue you - like a pick up truck!) - the local grocery shop.

While I like the house a lot, the fan drives me mad. I have hit my head on it once too often! Whoever installed it must have been short!

Dinner done, I started the packing

I also tried to log into the Air Transat site to no avail - it said our reservation was not to be found! I have sent an email to the travel agency (booked through J's work as we get 35% off that way! ) so hopefully they will sort it out before I have to do online check in tomorrow afternoon!

Last full day tomorrow! Though we did reveal to the kids that we are off to SoCal at Christmas - they were a little overwhelmed I think!

Nice chilled day. Man those spiders freak me out, too creepy.
Sad face at packing but hurrah to a new trip.

What a lovely relaxing day - although who can possibly relax with spiders that size in the vicinity - not me that's for sure. For a shortie who doesn't even hit 5 ft, the fan looks just the right height! Another trip, another report I'm hoping Mel?

Still not finished the packing - last load of washing being dried at the moment

We have checked in - the three adults are in the emergencyexit row and F is across the aisle (she was ok with that so we all got extra leg room!)

Now just photographing the last sunset

Pleased you got some fish in the end-F is really the champion! Hope your check in gets sorted. (We did the surprise reveal this morning for the kids, they are delighted but it's definitely a quiet excitement!)
