What a rainy couple of days! It sure isn’t helping the ground dry out or firm up at all. After tomorrow the next few days are looking like we might see some sun, so let’s keep our fingers crossed.
Unfortunately we have some sad news to share in doggy world. We had to say goodbye to Lola after 13 loyal years. She was Stormy’s only daughter, amongst a litter of 4 brothers, and with the puppies’ mom not being around after she was born, Leah became the mom to the litter, raising them in the house and bottle feeding them from about a week old. Needless to say, Lola has always held a special place in our hearts. Over the past few years, she joined the crew on the front lines, and could often be found wandering the property and keeping an eye on everything and everyone, as they came and went. Mostly though, she was glued to Leah 🙂
We will miss her around here!
What a start to spring we’ve had! It’s official, the ice and snow are gone and its boat season. And speaking of boats, we have some news to share.
Many of you over the years have gotten to know our head mechanic Cal. He has been an integral part of the team here at Little Gull for 13 years (crazy how fast time goes), and it is with very mixed emotions that we share with you the beginning of a new adventure for him. Cal is moving in to a management role at a new marina just outside of Peterborough. Slightly closer to home for him and with a focus less on marine engines and more on motorcycles, which is the background Cal came to us from, it is perfect for him.
We want to wish him all the best on his new endeavours and thank him for all of the great years, many long long hours and fixes of boats, tractors and everything in between, and especially for all of the great treats that often got sent in for the crew here from his wife Val.
Luke has embraced the challenge as we move in to the spring of filling the role of lead mechanic and we know that he will do a great job.
As always, we need at least 2 weeks notice in order to get your boat in the water. We are already way behind due to the late start that Mother Nature gave us, combined with the very rainy, muddy conditions we have had, and appreciate your patience as we work to get your boats ready to go as soon as possible.
Its definitely time to stay off of the ice now. The water has come up quite a bit over the past week or so and the spring sun has done its work on the lake and snow. Roads are pretty soft so be careful on the shoulders and have an eye out for the usual spring pot-holes.
As always, we need at least 2 weeks notice to get your boat out of storage and ready for the water, so please email or call Michelle to make necessary arrangements. Dock orders for this summer have also stacked up quickly, so if you are considering a new dock for your toys or to sit and relax on this season, please contact Ryan as soon as possible.
Also we are getting our lost and found page back up and running. Let us know if mysterious items have drifted ashore over the winter and spring, or if you are missing something and hopefully we can get things back to their owners!
Enjoy the rest of the week and Happy Easter
