MarketWATCH Muskoka: 23 June 2022 Summer steamed in and made itself comfortable, breaking a few records as it did so. Along the way, it effectively diminished the mosquito population. Unexpectedly, summer’s first weekend may be without the ‘Muskoka wave’, a by product of swatting the pesky critters away. Once again, people are congregating, enjoying sights [...]

June strolls in and kicks back. Days are long and dock time is upon us. For some, early morning is best. Calm waters. Birds doing their bird things. If you’re lucky, a loon will be laughing or a merganser will glide by with its fleet of little ones paddling like mad to keep up. Shore [...]

  Snowdrops seem like a ruse. They give a little hope (and joy) before the next dump of snow or bout of freezing rain. Crocuses on the other hand, closely followed by Cilla, are an affirmation. The ground is warming up (finally) and winter has lost its grip. There may yet be a dump (look [...]
