Muskoka river
Between August 30th and September 15th 2010

Fall is my favourite time of year, and benches one of my favourite places to witness the seasons change! This bench called to me, come and sit a spell!

The District of Muskoka, extends into central Ontario from Georgian Bay in the west to Lake Couchiching in the south, and to the western border of Algonquin Park in the east, spanning 2500 miles. Muskoka encompasses Lake of Bays township, Georgian Bay township, Muskoka Lakes township and the larger towns of Huntsville, Bracebridge and Gravenhurst. It is a favourite tourist and resort destination boasting 1600 lakes within its perimeter, and it commonly referred to as “Cottage Country”. Many international celebrities have built their summer homes in the Muskoka area.

    So beautiful. I love that chunky bench at the base of the hill. It’s almost as if, the bench and the tree are old friends.
