We aren't the only ones around with deer hanging about. This chap came out to say "Hello" when I dropped it at our cousins', at Logging Chain Lodge in Dwight. Anne-Marie says he's robbing the birdfeeders. He's also eating their shrubs...
Logging Chain has a beautiful location facing down to Dwight Beach. This has to be one of the best and biggest beaches on the Lake of Bays. While they have a private section of this beach, most of it is a public beach, and very popular all year round. They tend to get snowmobilers in the winter -- and their location connecting to both the main lake trail and the rest of the Muskoka Snowmobile trails is ideal, so anyone still considering a seasonal rental so they can ride, ride, ride... give them a call! With Haliburton Snowmobile Rentals handily located close by, there's no reason you can't spend your time on the trails this winter.
At this time of year, the fish huts start to blossom out there on the ice. These can be extravagant creations, with heat, stoves, t.v.'s... or they can be as simple as sitting on a bucket with a hole in the ice in front of you, but they are always popular!
Also popular this winter is the skating rink you can see in the foreground. Someone brought down a bench, and it has been expanded and is kept clear. It's a wonderful thing when a community gets together on something like this -- a great activity for the whole family! There's a special magic in skating on a lake, not in an arena or artificial rink!
