Come on in! The water’s fine💦, they said. Up until a week ago the waters in these parts were definitely on the refreshing side. Some might say cold. With heat of the last few days there’s been a definite closing of the tolerance gap. Super heated bodies need to cool down and, for the more sensitive, water temps have risen. Where ‘come on in, the water’s fine’ may have been a ruse a week ago, today it’s on the money. More people are recreating in the water than on it… even if that’s simply standing in it beside the dock, using the dock as a resting place for a long, cool drink. 🌞Summer is unmistakably here!

Along with summer comes barbecue. This weekend 🐷Ribfest in Gravenhurst is accompanying the 🚤boat and 🏡cottage show at the wharf, starting July 22 and running through the weekend. If savoury treats appeal to your palate, then Gravenhurst is the place to sooth that need this weekend!

In the middle of summer, cottage sales typically slow a bit as people are enjoying recreating by and in the water. For those on the lookout for a property it’s usually a good time to buy as market intensity eases off a tad. That said, there are new listings to be seen. So if wanting a dock to stand by is in your future, here are this week’s picks.

Questions? We even have our phone on the dock…
