Full moon kayaking... . “Before we invented civilization our ancestors lived mainly in the open out under the sky. Before we devised artificial lights and atmospheric pollution and modern forms of nocturnal entertainment we watched the stars. There were practical calendar reasons of course but there was more to it than that. Even today the most jaded city dweller can be unexpectedly moved upon encountering a clear night sky studded with thousands of twinkling stars. When it happens to me after all these years it still takes my breath away.”
Come and enjoy this iconic talent on Sun and Mon at 3pm in #lakeofbays on #Limberlost . Road.

We love the changing seasons, the way the light reflects and shadows differently from fall to winter, from spring to summer. At this time of year we find the early evening particularly cozy with an amber glow inside as twilight happily hangs in the sky outside.
