Someone flicked the switch. September 22 summer ended with a thump. True, Muskoka still hasn't had it's first frost (we've been close ), but nights are definitely cooler and the lakes are quickly losing their heat. There's been at least one misty morning where the air is significantly cooler than the lakes. In Haliburton, particularly [...]

We know the forest is dry. A fire ban is in effect. One day last week we could smell the smoke from Parry Sound 33 an 11,000 hectare burn north and west of Parry Sound more than 150 kms away. On the upside, smoke haze leads to great sunsets. We understand, too, that forest fires [...]

Bullet dodged. There was concern that later than usual ice out would have ramifications of a flooding kind. Not so this year! Exactly 12 months ago docks on Lake Muskoka were underwater and Rosseau and Joe were recording some of the highest water levels seen above the locks. The Muskoka River was raging and the [...]

Whether it's the sweetness of s'mores, the closeness of companionship or the warmth of flickering firelight, the fire pit is a celebration of night and a day well spent. It's easy to get lost in thought, mesmerized by glowing coals. There's an inward intimacy of [...]
