Old Red Jacket Talker

Just an old RCMP dispatcher’s ramblings . . .

Gorgeous Lake (and Harvest) Weather

We finally made the decision to ‘make a break’ for the lake last week. Even though I was offered weekend work at the Hardware, I decided to head north instead. I finished up my cleaning routines on Friday night and then only had the paper delivery for Saturday morning. Once the papers were delivered we hit the road.

The traffic was minimal so early in the morning as most of the major traffic travelling on Friday evening. We made great time and arrived at the cabin around 10:15 a.m. The weather got warmer the more we drove. The sun was out and the wind was down. Craig arrived about an hour and a half after us.

Craig and I got to work and put the chain saw to work and got some dead falls cut up for firewood. We then got a smoke going and sat around the fire and chatted the afternoon away. For supper we fired up the BBQ and had a steak, potato and trimmings. It was an early to bed evening as we both had been up bright and early.

Sunday was about the same, except I let Craig do the work and I just got to sit and supervise. The weather was just great and we wished we could stay, but of course I had papers bright and early Monday morning. We departed at 5:10 p.m. arriving home at 7:30 p.m.

It was just a nice little get away for a only a short time, but it was worthwhile. I’m not sure whether we’ll get another chance this coming fall or not. It would be nice. I’m hoping I don’t have to make a quick one day trip to draining the water and close up for the winter. With the long weekend coming up, maybe we’ll get another chance to head north. The weather is supposed to be staying nice and warm.

We’ll see…

  1. Hey I am very glad to hear you folks made it up to the lake. I heard via text from Craig how beautiful the weather was. Hopefully if our new September summer holds you will make it up again this year.

    If you do happen to just make a day trip to close up and it’s on a Monday or a Friday I’m game to tag along if you want the company.
