There was a time when culture here reflected how well you could fish, play cards or paddle a canoe. From time to time for extreme culture, a boat trip to Bala and Dunn’s Pavilion (today The Kee) or an evening in the Opera House in Gravenhurst put icing on the cake. Of course there were [...]

The nights are slowly lengthening and, if the early mornings in these parts are anything to go by, they are cooling too. With the cool comes clearer skies. After sunset, the sky takes a page from the Webb telescope. As far as the eye can see there are points of light. Magnificent! On the dock, [...]

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 [...]

Dog days of summer. Named for the brightest star in the summer sky, Sirius. It’s found in Canis Major, the dog constellation. The star has little to do with dogs lazing around in the sun... Although when it comes to dock time, lazing around in the sun is pretty nice - especially with an ice [...]

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 [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 12 May 2022 Trillium. Our Provincial flower. Its 3 pointed bloom is easily recognized by graphic representation on official documents of Ontario; Driver’s Licenses and Health Cards. We see the flower almost every day throughout the year. And yet, as it is now, with hardwood bushes being full of them carpeting the forest [...]

  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 [...]

The last two days have cut through the vestiges of winter, reducing accumulated snow piles to small mounds of ice. In the woods and on trails, where snow remains, sun does not shine. Even the forest floor is delicately greening. Rivers and creeks are brimming. Cataracts and falls of the watershed are in full voice, [...]
