Dog days of summer. Named for the brightest star in the summer sky, Sirius. It’s found in Canis Major, the dog constellation. The star has little to do with dogs lazing around in the sun… Although when it comes to dock time, lazing around in the sun is pretty nice – especially with an ice cold beverage in hand!

This summer, though, is a summer of firsts. First time in 3 years that many of our summer festivals, events and happenings have resurfaced. Last week the Antique and Classic Boat Show in Gravenhurst was a huge success. The Kee in Bala is vibrating to happy sounds again. All across Cottage Country people are enjoying the things we did before COVID. But still, do them safely!

This week, in Bracebridge, is the Arts and Crafts Show. Muskoka has a rich history of local artisans plying their creativity. The event in Annie Williams Park is a super venue to get caught up with new and amazing handiwork of talented and inventive artists and crafts people. It starts Friday and runs through the weekend. You may even find stars and heavenly portraits not to mention studies of the canine variety. Enough dock time? Go to the show!

No dock time? Take a look at this week’s offerings. Your dock awaits!
