Cottage Life

A simple afternoon. This place in Gatineau reminds me of my hometown. The lake, the trees, the gravel road. I never appreciated this scenery until I moved to Ottawa. A weekend at the cottage? That is so boring, it's just lakes and trees, "What do you do?" I used to ask those that have cottages, "Stare at each other in the wilderness?". Well turned out that my life was a giant cottage for 15 years living in Victoria, BC. I just didn't know until I moved out of it.

Now I like the serenity. It's true: you don't know what you have until it's gone. Happy long weekend!


  1. Beautiful setting for these photos, it looks so tranquil and peaceful there! Also, don't ask me why but your outfit and positioning reminds me on Cameron Diaz - in a very good way! :)


  2. Beautiful photos! Have a great weekend, enjoy!!


  3. What a beautiful scenery, looks so peaceful. Great shots :)!

  4. So beautiful and out standing of the scenery picture. I've always love such a peaceful place like this, Have my favorite book and be there with my own little world:). I followed your bloglovin, I hope you adding me too. xx

  5. It looks so beautiful there... very calm and serene.. I probably should go somewhere like that, get away from everything and just think... Enjoy the weekend :)

  8. I really would love a whole week at a cottage surrounded by woods and a lake. How beautiful and calming and a great way to get away from the busy city. I'd totally sit at the edge of the lake with a fishing line or go walking and foraging for wild things or camping out!

  9. I know what you mean. I also live a quieter life now and it feels weird when I go to the city, especially during a rush hour.. I am quite lucky as I live right at the border of London. I can still use metro to get more central and I have an advantage of all the serenity that living in the wildlife gives…

  10. Hope you're having a nice weekend. I need to start fishing again. Not to catch anything, just to enjoy the quiet and being near the water. For me growing up, it was fields, trees, a gravel road and train tracks...which is part of why I enjoy your location shoots on the tracks so much.

  11. So true, you never realize. Such beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing Julie =]
