Welcome to our first glimpses of winter with the bay freezing over once already! All of the boats are out of the water and in bed or on their way to their winter bed. It was a very busy fall with fairly decent weather thankfully, but now we’re right into it with snow off and on for the past two weeks and snowmobiles coming out of storage. For anyone who wants service done to their snowmobile, please get in touch with Sally as soon as possible so that we can make it happen. She can also help with Christmas ideas for toys for the snow and the water.
For the first time since being here, we are taking a break at Christmas with both Heather and Bryan home. We will be closed from December 20th until January 4th in hopes of enjoying a more relaxing holiday season with family and friends. Our regular December hours are Monday-Saturday 9am-4pm.
Enjoy the next few weeks leading in to the holiday season!
It was great to see everyone over Thanksgiving! Lots of boats came in that weekend and throughout the past week. Everyone here is extremely busy getting them to bed before we get too many cold nights. The water is really low now so if you haven’t made arrangements for us to pick up your boat for the winter, please do so by emailing Sally as soon as possible so we can get them here safe and sound. The girls had to go swimming to get one boat off of a beach and out far enough to start this week and would be quite happy to stay dry the rest of the month Temperatures falling below 0 at night is not only hard on the boats but also on water systems so keep that in mind as we head in to colder weather.
Speaking of colder weather, snowmobile permits are on sale now at 30% off until November 1st so take advantage of the early bird special and get all set for winter fun!
Hunting season is in full swing now so remember to dress in orange like a pumpkin when you’re out for walks. Keep safe and have a great weekend! Just a reminder that we are now closed on Sundays until the snowmobile trails open!
Where has another month gone? Labour day came and went, kids went back to school, it felt like summer for awhile and now it seems we’re really in to fall weather. September was a gorgeous month though and it was nice to see so many people up enjoying it! Now that we’re in to October, the water has really started dropping quickly. Each week we noticed changes but the last week is fairly significant. If you haven’t been up in awhile you may want to consider a trip up to make sure your boat and dock are still floating and not lounging on the beach. With the quick drop, boats are coming in fast and furious. The girls are out doing pick-ups nearly every day and weekends are busy with drop-offs. With Thanksgiving on the horizon, often close-up weekend for many, we expect what space is left in the yard will fill up quickly so please email Sally to ensure your toys have a place to rest for the winter. The trees are also starting to change and the weather is looking good so here’s to a beautiful, colourful weekend ahead.
