Photo Credit: Scott Webb MarketWATCH Muskoka: 14 October 2020 Colour has passed its peak. Leaves, now turning from gold to brown, are soft upon the forest floor. Their scent evoking a time of hiding in piles of them, playing in forts of them, throwing armfuls of them at one another. Fall smells good in the [...]

Photo Credit: Ruth Caron The other day, with my windshield view filled with the glory of a forest at the height of its colour, I rounded a corner and was forced to a stop. Facing me was a Tom turkey fluffed up and looking just like one of those you see in pictures of Puritans [...]

It's also a time when stags and bull moose are more active, not to mention tom turkeys charging cars. Be vigilant!! Want to go for a drive to see the colours? You have to keep your eyes [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka Autumn. This week is classic. Warm days, cool nights, gentle breezes. Morning mists, glasslike waters and no bugs. Perfect for paddle boarding, taking the kayak out or just soaking in dock time. It's a time to decompress and marvel. Leaves are starting to turn. There's the occasional flash of brilliant red as one [...]

The last week of summer. For some, cottaging is becoming a memory. Last week a delightful 3 bed cottage with bunkie came to market. The land level and welcoming, with shelving rock across its shore. The view, wide open, graced by sunsets. At 150' of lakefront the property wouldn't be considered large, but with neighbours [...]

Wow! And just like that, the seasons have changed. Lakes are cooling, leaves are turning and the golden days are upon us. Farmers' markets are full of late summer produce. We have yet to sample a crisp fall apple. But it won't be long! September brings an interesting mix of properties to market. People leaving [...]

Warm days, cool nights, bonfires, walks in the woods, calm waters and no bugs. What's that called? September! One of the nicest months of the year (this writer's favourite), September brings golden hues, great boating and a relaxed vibe not found in high season. This year might be a little different with more people working [...]

This is the time of year attention begins to switch. For realtors and other service professionals, back to school usually gives us a break. Not so with COVID. The pandemic has a vibe of its own. Some kids are going back, others are being home schooled. Some people are going to the city and others [...]

The night sky is magnificent. To realize our blue planet is barely visible to the stars we see, is simply awe inspiring as the [...]

Last week we were talking about making waves, riding them and even getting air. By coincidence, yesterday we were working with a guy who likes air so much he kite boards. We don't often get big wind here, but we've seen kite boarders in other places take air 30' or more. The adrenaline of watching [...]
