Some people call September “the best summer month.” I have to be honest — I’m borrowing that quote from Carolyn Amyotte, the mayor of North Kawartha. But she would know as she has the good fortune to live and work in The Kawarthas.
September days are warm enough that it feels the height of summer is still with us. Crisp mornings that have a bit of mist rising off the lake. Cooler nights that bring the clear full night sky. The wind-down of September is slow enough to ease us gently into the idea of fall and winter. I love the absolute quiet on the lake.
Whatever you love best about September, I am sure you will find it in our top photos this month.
