It's nice being on vacation: stuck in a cottage for an entire week with little to do is the ultimate in forced relaxation.
I realized how stressed I can be and constantly multi-tasking on the very first morning as I sat reading the local newspaper. I didn't have to skim articles due to crunched time. Normally, at home, by the time I get back from work and in between dinner and then to bed there's little down time. The other day I said to myself, "I have a whole week to read this newspaper." Who cares if it's old news.
The cottage is beautiful. It was completely renovated in the spring of this year. The views are fantastic! We're right in the middle of Somes sound -- one of the only fjords in the United States.
That's Bandit in the sun which streams in through the windows in the morning. He's having a good time too.
Every morning deer trek along the backyard. They're so cute. Surprisingly Bandit's pretty good with them. He just stares and the deer look back. They're so accustomed to people they're hardly afraid.
Well, more pictures at a later time. Over and out...
