..went through a phase sometime ago of giving away a DVD every week. One of the DVDs that came with the paper my husband bought was On Golden Pond, starring Henry Fonda and Katharine Hepburn. Filmed in 1981 amidst beautiful, beautiful scenery it is without doubt my favourite film.
I'm probably enchanted with the film as much for its location as its storyline. That log cabin set on the shores of a lake has got it all for me. Woods to wander in, birds to watch, a canoe to mess about on the water in, a porch to read a good book on, - yep, it's got the lot.
Here's my DVD sitting on top of a pile of shirts that are waiting to be ironed. I quite often watch it while I'm doing the ironing and in fact that's what I was doing just a little while ago and that's what my Simple Pleasure is this week. No, not doing the ironing but watching On Golden Pond while I did it.
