Another hot weekend at the cabin!

The temperature last Friday was 30 degrees C and and after working out in the heat all day, when we arrived at the cabin, both myself and Emma headed straight to the lake to cool off.

Initially the water was cold, but after a couple of minutes it was warm and relaxing to be in the lake

I spent most of the weekend working on the cabin.  This time I was fixing tongue and groove boards around the living room walls, one metre high.

We will then have wall paper on the walls above the boards

Emma was bored, so I asked here to draw a picture on the wall where the boards were going, and she also wrote about our family, so that in future years when the boards are removed, someone can read about who was living there before.

I put up a hammock as a chair on the veranda and Emma spent quite  bit of time sitting there birdwatching.

We have a pair of White Wagtails nesting under the cabin roof and they spent a lot of time catching insects.

There were also Black Grouse displaying nearby in the evening.

We will be spending three days at the cabin this coming weekend.
