Towards the end of summer we headed back to Salt Spring Island and Lakeside Gardens Resort, where Mark had reserved our favourite cabin for us. Lakeside Gardens is situated on St. Mary Lake, and Number 7 is literally on the water's edge.
The sound of shore birds greets us every morning, along with the brilliant sunrise colours on the western side of the lake.
Alas, this will be our last visit to Number 7 for another year, offering one last opportunity to enjoy the early mornings.
One last chance to walk along the north end of the island, where some people walk in the shade, and others celebrate the heat with additional layers of clothing and the direct sun.
And one final time to view the ever-changing colours of the sun on the lake, the trees and the sky itself.
Until next spring of course.
