Aaron's 5 Star Getaway!

This Sunday I will be heading to the cottage. It's Aaron's cottage and we only get there once a year. We will be gone for a week, and needless to say I know I will have lots of reading to catch up on when I get back!

We are leaving at 3am Sunday morning. It's a 6 hour drive so we figure if we leave that early we will be in North Bay by 6ish, grab some gas and grub and then push on for the final 3 1/2 hours! It really is a beautiful drive. Once we pass North Bay the highway has all of these little lakes just off the side. We always pass them and are like "Oh, got fish there sometime..."although we just keep driving. This year however we plan on stopping at a couple. Even if we catch nothing that is okay. I am really looking forward to trying out Aaron's new wide angle lens!

So the cottage we like to call Aaron's 5 star Retreat. It is located on Lake Sesekinika, just outside of Timmins Ontario. The cottage is in the shape of an octagon, and complete with two round beds! Nana told us that she saw a Bobcat out in the backyard (the grandparents live in the house next to the cottage), so maybe I can get some really neat pic's...from a safe distance of course!

I look forward to this trip every year. I love the drive up even though it takes us forever! I usually read to Aaron and we do crosswords or just jab about what we are going to do. It almost always involves sleeping in and relaxing!

In preparation for our trip we have spent the last day or so doing the following: cleaning up the condo (because it is way more fun to come home to a clean home) and I have been up to my armpits in laundry. We have also been foraging for food as I am not grocery shopping this close to our trip. We stop in Kirkland Lake to get food so that we aren't over packing the car with stuff. There is after all three of us heading up this year in one car so it'll be tight already!

Well my dears, I am off! I hope you all have a fantastic week! If I can ghost a signal at the cottage I will come on and check out what's been happening with all of you! As my boss used to tell us before we left the breakout room..."Play safe, and have fun."
