It’s started. Tips are turning.🍁 In some places whole branches are 🔥flaming red. Down our road there’s one 🌳tree which decided to strut its stuff early. Never thought of 🌳trees as being exhibitionists before. But this one will have done it’s full act🤸‍♀️ and be standing there in the altogether before any of its neighbours👨‍👩‍👦‍👦have [...]

Water's warm! Come on in... With nights beginning to cool, lake temps are dropping. Another couple of weeks and those of us who have become fans of 80+ degree lakewater may find the cooling effects of starry nights on our water of choice to be a bit brisker than we're accustomed to. This summer's heat [...]

In usual years the waterfront recreational marketplace enters hibernation about now. Cold, winds and driving rain are enough to dampen interest and drive, with potential buyers shelving cottage dreams until spring. Unusual years, by definition, don't come around very often. This year is one of those. Fuelled by Coronavirus and the realization 'working from home' [...]

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 [...]

  Although we've been quiet for a while, Muskoka, Haliburton and Parry Sound are still here! Trees are budding, spring flowers have been blooming in gardens and yesterday we saw dogtooth violets in the bush. It won't be long before was see a carpet of trilliums! This year ice went out early, by about a [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 4 September 2019 September, to our way of thinking, is one of the nicest months in Muskoka. The days are warm, nights cool (very nice for an evening by the fire pit) and the lakes are quiet. Along the shore, the number of lights twinkling across the lake has diminished. An evening cruise [...]

The race is on! If you've got a favourite blueberry spot, now's the time to be picking. The berries this year are really intense. With not a lot of rain, these little guys haven't fleshed out much. They're small, but boy! Do they pack a punch. Flavour! The real challenge, though, is when to pick. [...]
