Is It Really September Already?

It is hard to believe that we are already into September here at The Waldheim.  This summer season has just flown by!  As much as we have been a cool retreat for families and pets to get away from a city, we have had one of the warmest and humid-est (is that a word?) summer I can remember.  The beginning of July was in the 90's and probably close to 90% humidity!  Phew!!  At one point, Big Moose Lake was up to 80* in some locations.  It has made for a very water activity filled season!  Lots of canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing, and swimming happened for our guests and our staff.   Not to mention the fishing!  The bass and perch that have been pulled out at our main dock have been numerous and BIG!!  I've personally seen a few 18" bass being caught...catch and release, of course!  The kids and adults were bass-ically having too much fin...I mean fun. 

We are finally feeling a repreive from the heat and humidity.  I even commented as I walked out of the office this afternoon, how nice it is to smell the wood fire from all our fireplaces.  Today is supposed to reach the upper 50's, with tonight getting down into the upper 30's.  A nice time to bundle up in your cottage and sit by a crackling fire.  

How are you spending your Saturday afternoon?
