There is an annual ritual that takes place once the snow has receded to the protected shade of the trees. The thick lake ice transforms itself; into open water. Once that first sunny weekend is promised in April and May…it’s time. The family is loaded into the SUV and the boat is waiting patiently at the marina for your arrival. It’s astonishing, the sharp, distinct and compelling memories that the cottage and boating evoke.
When you watch your children or grandchildren jump off the dock and enjoy the cool clear water or take them on a cruise in your classic boat, you experience a strong sense of déjà vu. You are back at the cottage. Life is good.
