September: The Best Month to Cottage

Over the years September has proven itself the best cottage month of the season. Here is why:
  • All of the beach squatters have removed Turkey Point from the weeked to-do list.
  • The water is still warm enough for a swim.
  • The waterfront is not lined with stinky boats and gasoline smell.
  • During the day - shorts and sunshine.
  • During the night - blankets and fires.
Here are a couple of photographs taken this weekend to illustrate the point.

The thermometer on the shady side of the barn late afternoon on Saturday says that it is okay to wear shorts and a t-shirt.

As you can see from the photograph below - not only have the weekend beach goers left us alone.....

So have the Purple Martins. Their summer residence has been lowered for cleaning and winter storage.

For some people the boating season is over and the slings have been pulled out of the water.

Here is a couple of photographs of garden varieties in bloom at this time of year.
