Flat Stanley: Cottage Adventures with the Boss – Part 1

Back from the Bahamas, and now at the cottage with the boss!

Fresh air, clear water, and relaxation.

Here I am at Grant Cottage in the Thousand Islands near Brockville. The Chief Librarian, Rudi Denham, has been coming her for 10 years! The cottage has a great view of the St. Lawrence River, and all day long, heavy freighters circle close to shore, and then turn to head out between the islands. Sometimes the freighters are hidden in the fog, but you can hear the rumble, and even feel the vibration of their heavy engines right on the shore. Across the river (in good weather!) you can see the United States.

Yes, I did see the boss wearing nothing but a bathing suit and goosebumps, ankle deep in water, screaming “It’s cold! It’s cold! IT’S COLD!” Wish I had a camera ;o)
