Memories of an enchanting summer at Salerno

This summer has been so wonderful in large part because of Anita and Ron who have welcomed me every weekend to their cottage at Salerno Lake. There have been so many blissful hours: of swimming and feasting, silence and laughter; of sitting with a mug of coffee and watching the morning mist settle like a golden dust on the lake; of listening to Bach and getting into passionate discussions about politics and religion; of drinking endless glasses of red wine and watching the moon cast a golden ribbon of light across the water; listening to the haunting cry of a loon parting the night; and yes of skinny dipping at midnight by the glow of the stars and sprinting to warm ourselves by the fire ;-) !!

Here are a few pictures:

Ok if you zoom in, you'll be able to see him on the right, my loon.

The boathouse (where I like to sleep).
