🦃Turkey’s done except for the 🍗left overs. 🌳Trees too… only a few 🍂leaves left. What doesn’t seem done is the warm weather. Quite amazing! After all, we have had ❄snow in these parts at Thanksgiving. Not only that, our friend Walter, went for a swim…🏊‍♂️ not a dip, a swim💦! I couldn’t tell if it [...]

Photo by James Wheeler on Unsplash September’s done. No frost yet and none in the forecast. It won’t be long, though. At the time of writing we’re in single digits and the sky is clear. Autumn glory is just around the corner. It looks like the peak of colour and Thanksgiving stand a good chance [...]

Photo by Jakob Owens on Unsplash Fall. Autumnal Equinox. Pumpkins. Turkey. Hallowe’en. Traditions to follow and new ones to make. A time of sweaters, raking leaves and walks in the woods. Bright blue skies dominate memories. It’s also a season of storms and preparing for winter. But we’ll leave yard clean up and dead heading [...]

It’s started. Tips are turning.🍁 In some places whole branches are 🔥flaming red. Down our road there’s one 🌳tree which decided to strut its stuff early.

Gears have changed. School is in session. The summer folk have left. The place seems a little empty. Yes, they’ll be back, but it’s not the same. Our summer vibe is on hold. Not for a year, but certainly through the week. Come the weekend, and the weather’s fine, the vibe will be felt throughout [...]

Another couple of weeks and those of us who have become fans of 80+ degree lakewater may find the cooling effects of starry nights on our water of choice to be a bit brisker than we're accustomed to.

Every once in a while a unique property comes to market. In 2007 such a property did. On Lake Rosseau it had smaller frontage (100’) facing west. Gentle land. It’s uniqueness was twofold. First, it had an old two storey boathouse with two bedrooms and a full kitchen. Second, the cottage was new, a rebuild, [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 18 August 2021 In ‘normal’ years there’s a rhythm. Summer flows to a beat. At the beginning there’s a huge ‘Ahhh’. The release of tension and anticipation of dock time, new tricks to learn on the board, summer friends (the lifelong kind you only see in summer), fire pits and s’mores. The rituals [...]

Photo credit: Photo by Anna Samoylova on Unsplash August Civic Holiday. The hump day of summer. This year towns and villages of cottage country were fairly humming compared to last year. Parking spaces were hard to find and some businesses had appropriately distanced line ups outside. After more than a year of quiet, the return [...]
