Hi everyone,
Greetings from Four Mile Lake, located in 'cottage country' in Ontario's Kawartha Lakes region. It's been a pleasant late summer weekend up here, with great swimming & kayaking conditions (photo below).
On the field: last Friday night Essendon suffered another heavy defeat, losing by 70 points to Collingwood. The Magpies' victory means that they are this year's minor premiers and will have home ground advantage throughout the finals.
