Not quite the Dog Days, but still summery. Our heat wave has broken leaving the lake warm and luxurious. Today, with the cooler morning, mist curled its way skyward. Somewhere beyond the bay two loons laughed and closer to shore, a fish momentarily carved the surface of the lake sending gentle waves in circles. Looking down, I noticed the steam from my tea was shaped almost the same as lake mist. It was a quiet moment of connection.
There's lots to do here and sometimes the best to do is sit and enjoy the quiet. Morning reflections, though, seem not to last as long as they did. Glass like surfaces call skiers to carve their own turns, making waves of a different kind.
Making waves is what cottage real estate has been doing this year. In the past week our little team has chalked up 5 sales and we're preparing two more offers and have three listings coming to market in the next few days. We're not alone. Our marketplace is busy. Taking early morning dock time restores our energy and reconnects us with this place we call home.
The laugh of the loon is a reminder of why we're here. Cottage life is rewarding. Being in touch with nature calming. If you're looking for those moments too, then talk with us. That's what we're here for.
Check out what happened this week!
