As fall is in full swing, and the temperatures have started to dip at night, we decided it was time to start closing up the cabin for the season.
The colors in the field are golden.
We tidy the cabin.
We put the beds to bed.
We treasure the time we had as a family.
I often blog about time at the cabin and I am sure many wonder just where it is. Our cabin area has unfortunately been in the news lately. The train derailment that occurred at Gainford, Alberta this past weekend is just across the lake from our cabin. We hear the 1 a.m. train every weekend and that very same train is the one that derailed and sent fireballs flaring. We were lucky this past weekend, a few kids fighting colds kept us from going up for the final close up. Luckily we avoided the smoke and the traffic problems, which is minor compared to the families that have been evacuated and have had farmland burned to the ground. Hopefully final close up will happen this weekend.
(Warning: today is municipal election day in Alberta. As I watch the numbers roll in this evening I know the scene is building for a very immature post from me tomorrow. Just thought I would throw out the warning!)

What a wonderful cabin.
Thank you for “visiting” our cabin!
I’m bracing myself – the earplugs are in! Beautiful family, cabin and spot you have there Deb – the things that really matter.
One scathing picture might just sum up my thoughts on the election……….bad results make for good blogs!
Such lovely pictures. Look like a wonderful place to be.
It is a nice, quiet and cozy place. Thanks for “visiting” our cabin!
What a precious spot! I am glad you’re safe. Best wishes about the election.
Thanks for reading the post!
What a wonderful cabin! And I loved the picture of your family.
Thanks for having a look. We do a family picture in front of the cabin at close up every year.
Lovely cabin, and love seeing your family photo!
Thanks for taking a look.
Close up is always sad. We are contemplating making the bunkie suitable for (very rustic) winter use for snowshoeing weekends so that we don’t have to have an end to cabin season.
