Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

We’ve got a lot of water up here now, most between Thursday and Friday. In some spots on Mississagua the pooling on top of the ice was over a foot deep so caution to snowmobilers your machines may not like the water very much, nor will the lack of snow be friendly to your sliders. We have seen this water freeze over between yesterday and today’s cold temperatures, but it is still possible to break through the top layer and feel some water before you hit the solid, thick ice underneath. Some areas might be great for skating!

Most of the snowmobile trails around us are yellow now (limited availability) probably due to water and ice, with some north of the park green if you want to get a last ride or two in for the season. It sure has been a great one this year!

Enjoy the sunshine!

Happy March Break to all the kids and school staff out there!

Leah and Heather are having a great time in Australia getting caught up and exploring Heather’s new city. Leah spent a day at the Australia Zoo where Heather works now, and they even got to Sydney for a couple of days this week as you can see. Who knows that the next week and a half will hold!

Every year around this time, and often earlier, we start getting several inquiries about summer jobs, so we thought we’d try and give you some info here. Year to year we don’t necessarily know who is returning from the previous summer and who is not, however if you know someone who would like to work here during the summer, or through the year, please encourage them to send a resume to leah@littlegullmarina.ca. Leah keeps all of the resumes we receive on file so that when we do need a spot or two filled, we have an idea of who might be interested and can follow up.

The conditions for outdoor winter activities are still beautiful up here, however there is a good amount of rain in the forecast right now over the next week, so keep an eye on the OFSC trail maps, but get out and enjoy while it’s still here if you can. Please also be respectful of the generosity of the private property owners who allow trails to cross their land by staying on the groomed trails. Have a great weekend and March Break.

March already! January and February were pretty great months for winter activities, and it looks like that will continue a little bit longer for us. The trails are in great condition, there is lots of snow on the lakes and in the forest and the forecast looks good for some more in the future.

We are closed for the month of March again this year, so the closest place to get gas is Anstruther Marina. Leah is off on an adventure before we get busy with boat season, and has headed back to Aussieland to visit Heather for 3 weeks. So far they are having a great time, she even got to attend a Dragon Boat practice with the Brisbane team!
Heather is doing really well, making the most of her time and experiences in Australia. She recently moved from Cairns to Brisbane, and is working at the Australia Zoo.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend
