As you can see, our cubs from the fall are back and all seemed to have done well over the winter. Momma is with them as well.  A reminder to ensure that all appetizing treats, garbage etc. are kept out of reach of these “little” guys.
It has been great to see everyone up enjoying the first real taste of summer that has lasted more than 1 consecutive day:)  Hopefully everyone enjoyed the heat wave this week.  As we start to think about the summer weather, remember to get in touch with Lori regarding swimming lessons starting in a few weeks to ensure your young ones get out and meet new friends while they enjoy the lake.
We are still very busy launching all of the boats and making sure they are ready for a great 2017 season on the water. The crew here have been doing a fabulous job working tirelessly to get the toys in tip-top shape for the summer through all of the challenging weather.
Finally, a big thank you to all those who donated to the Peterborough Dragon Boat Festival this past weekend.  We really appreciate your support in raising money for the Peterborough Regional
Hospital Centre’s Breast Assessment Centre for new Mammography machines.

Have a great week and Happy Father’s Day!

Welcome to Janu….I mean June! As you can see by the clothing on the girls the temps have been quite cool for being out on the water delivering the boats back to their homes. We are continuing to see unseasonably low temperatures considering it is June.We are still very busy in between rain/thunder showers getting all the boats out. On Wednesday, the girls were leaving here with the sun shining, and getting soaked on their way back to the marina. At least today and tomorrow’s forecast look nice before a few more days of rain start Sunday again.

After long consideration, we have decided that we will be suspending our propane delivery service. The costs associated for compliance with regulations have become prohibitive to make this service continue to be viable. We will still be filling cylinders onsite.

Hope everyone is enjoying the spring and looking forward to much better weather as summer quickly approaches.

This picture of a young lady moose with a calf due any day soon is a sure sign of spring! Considering the challenges we faced last weekend with Hydro,weather and highway closures it was great to see everyone up and enjoying the first big weekend of the summer!
It certainly has been quite the weather this spring.  The logistics of getting all of the toys back in the lake where they belong, clean, dry and running properly has been hampered by the seemingly endless rain! Having said that, things are moving forward to ensure that the bugs are fed and boats are floating peacefully at docks awaiting the chance to get out and play!
With summer just around the corner, you may be starting to think about how to entertain the kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, etc while they are up at the cottage. Lori Harper is  offering swimming lessons again this year, as well as First Aid/CPR courses.  We are sure there will be regattas, One Big Day at the community center, and other fun things so keep an eye out here over the coming weeks for summer activities. Gord has stocked the store with the necessary toys and accessories to add to the fun!

If you require any other service including tops, boat refinishing, new docks etc. please feel free to contact us asap to be scheduled in before the holidays start.

Have a great weekend and hopefully the forecast is better than it is showing!
