A Place to Ponder

Stephen Leacock Boathouse on Lake Couchiching, Orillia

To daydream or to ponder life this is where I go. The rowboat out in the water was moving very slow.

The boathouse sits in plain view for all to see. Sometimes I imagine what it would be like to live there happily.


To think that Stephen Leacock once sat here writing his short stories makes me smile to know that he was a great writer and spent his summers here on Brewery Bay, Lake Couchiching.

Stephen was a Canadian writer and humorist who was born in 1869 and was originally from Swanmore, UK.

This was written for Calmkate’s Friday Fun challenge.
