This is Bala, Ontario. Bala is a lovely small town close to where we rented our cottage this summer. (Click on it if you want to see a larger picture.)
We were there for two weeks, just the five of us, and the time went slowly enough that I felt like it was summer vacation, but just fast enough that I didn't get bored.
We had some real family down time there and now that we're back into the thick of things I'm glad that we did.
This vacation seems like it happened a long time ago but in reality it was only three weeks ago that we were there.
This represents my 'lazy hazy crazy days of summer' for 2008.
I'm thinkin' it was nice enough to warrant a repeat visit for 2009.
