3 hour drive from home to Barry's Bay for lunch and then to the Government dock where Winston was waiting to take us across the beautiful lake to their cottage. Not a warm day but sunshine predicted for tomorrow. Haven't been here for 17 years!

Molly spent some of the day sat in the car reading - (yes, that's how bad it was) the tent was just too chilly to sit in for any length of time.
