This is a first --- I am blogging from the cottage. This is HUGE. For most of the past 20 years (minus the last 3) I have moved to the cottage from the end of May to October. It was my little getaway. Mom illness changed that routine, but I am spending the weekend here. I needed a break, so I put the support system into action and I ran away.
Now 20 years ago, if I needed to make a phone call, it was a 3 mile drive up the road to a payphone. Then after a few years cell phones came to be but cell towers were rare in the beach area so you had to sit in one certain spot in the cottage to get reception (if the wind was blowing in the right direction). God forbid if you sneezed or moved your head during a call - you would lose the signal. Well, that has improved but imagine my delight when, only moments after my arrival, my neighbor knocked on the door and handed me his security code for wireless internet!!!!!! OMG blogging and facebooking from the beach......WOW its a whole new world! LOL
This morning I had my coffee on the deck overlooking the Tidnish River.
Millie has settled in nicely. She has her favorite little nest.
I still can't believe I am blogging from the cottage. COOL!
