After a bit of last minute scrambling, we found a boathouse on Lake Muskoka that’s available from tomorrow (Friday) until noon Monday. Our friends Dave and Jackie are coming with us and for the next four days, I plan on doing nothing but going for runs in the woods, lazy swims in the lake, canoe outings and early morning yoga on the deck. Reading in a Muskoka chair overlooking the water. Hotdogs and Keith’s, red wine and Montreal brie. Marshmallows over the campfire.
And packing the bare minimum in my backpack – shorts and tanktops and flip flops, a down vest for when the evening cools, my runners, a new book, my camera and sunglasses.
