Goodbye Summer + Our Favorite Picnic Spot

After a long blogging hiatus, I thought it would be fun to get reacquainted!

Back in January, we moved to a town outside of Toronto and we live a few blocks from Lake Ontario. The neighborhood we live in feels especially New England-like as there are many historical homes. It was a brutally cold winter, but the summer months have been so beautiful on the water. We've tried to take advantage of it as much as possible.  
One of our favorite things to do is go visit "Mr. Lighthouse" at James Robert calls it.  There is a beautiful park overlooking the lake and there are always sure to be people milling about.
Late in the season, we discovered the perfect picnic spot.  It overlooks the marina filled with stunning boats.  Usually we have the place to ourselves!
We recently headed to our overlook for what will likely be one of our last picnics of this year.  With James Robert starting school and Mat having a brutal work schedule coming up, we were content to squeeze every last drop out of summer (and use any excuse for a glass of bubbles)!
Summer treated us so well here, I'm a bit less excited about autumn as usual.  But I imagine that the fall will suit this town beautifully.  I'm particularly interested to see how the historical homes in our neighborhood will decorate for the fall!
