Gazebo Time!

One of the big differences between Northern California and Northern Ontario is the bug population.  Mosquitoes, black flies, horse flies, deer flies, May flies, spiders, moths, gnats...  You name it, it thrives by the hot and humid lake shore.

It wouldn't be so bad if we could peacefully co exist, but some of these creatures take one look at us and the dinner bell rings.  The mosquitoes buzz, bite and cause itching like heck.  

Enter this peaceful place down by the shore.  It is bug free and beautiful in a summer sprinkle of rain. We have been enjoying it so much.  Thank you to my wonderful husband for making it magically appear.  The best surprise ever!

Porto Fino: 20th Wedding Anniversary











Italian Moonlight: Porto Fino

One night in Porto Fino we had the most amazing moonlit sky.  The full moon rose like an orange ball of fire over the Mediterranean Sea.  The moonlight was so brilliant and the moon itself was so large and luminous in the night sky.  This picture can't even begin to show you how beautiful and amazing it was.
