From a visual standpoint autumn in northern Ontario is spectacular and while we were concerned 2018 may not fare as well colour wise as previous years (due to this summer's drought) our worries proved to be unfounded.

September has come and (almost) gone which is a shame because it's our favourite month of the year here in northern Ontario. The temperature is moderate, there are virtually no bugs and the vibrant fall colours are a spectacle that continue to amaze. Add friends, another Chi-Cheemaun ferry ride from South Baymouth to Tobermory and a second successful cataract eye surgery to the mix and what's not to love?

My primary goal this summer was to keep the calendar clear to accommodate my cataract surgery and once the dates were set the next item on the agenda was to ensure we arrived at the hospital in southern Ontario on schedule. (My right eye surgery was a week ago on August 3.) The forest fires, especially the Parry Sound 33 fire, were worrisome so we opted to take the Chi-Cheemaun ferry from South Baymouth on Manitoulin Island to Tobermory.

We've been home a little more than one month and it's been an enjoyable albeit busy four weeks. We've reconnected with a good many friends and family and settled back into a routine that for a change does not require a backpack! Even the gazebo is up, making the backyard a lovely outdoor space without the bugs.
