Muskoka and summer go together. Cottages, boating and S’mores. It’s the time of year when family and friends gather by the lake. A very Canadian tradition! Winter’s so long, we celebrate summer in unforgettable ways. Ask anyone who grew up cottaging – whether rented or owned – and summer is a main part of memory and good times.
This week summer comes across the threshold on Friday. Already Muskoka, Haliburton and Parry Sound are resonating with the season’s change. It won’t be long before wild blueberries, strawberries and other summer fruits are ready for tasting.
It’s here! Come and enjoy it.
