Cottage Day 4: Canoe/ Seamonster
What kind of total cock walks around the forest with a gas-powered leaf-blower strapped to his back, clearing His Property and shattering the peace? The same kind as owns three motorboats on a lake that measures one mile from end to end. The same kind as erects a forest sauna in the shape of a beer keg (ok, the sauna? pretty cool), and owns two hunting dogs who bark and snap at canoeists from the tip of the dock.
Meanwhile, a tiny otter keeps pace as we paddle past this scene. We imagine its whiskers and slick brown head are not one-third of a whole rodent, but instead the brow of a sea monster, the other ten metres of its body concealed below the black water.
