Everything Old is New Again
Many moons past, the Port Cunnington Road intersected the Fox Point Road at a 90 degree angle. (The old road is now the entrance into the indoor arena.)
As time passed, the Powers That Decide felt that a Y-junction would be preferable. So the Port Cunnington Road was swung to intersect right where the Fire Hall is now located. That's the way it's been since, oh, back in the 1960's.
This year, the District of Muskoka is working on the Port Cunnington Road, from the intersection of Fox Point down to Elder Drive. As part of this, The Powers That Decide have declared that the Y-junction is dangerous. Not that there has ever been an incident there (thankfully), but because folk do tend to zip on through without really demonstrating what might be described as a Full Stop. The District, in an email, said that it was 'confusing' to know which road had the Stop Sign. (one would suggest that it would be the road where the Stop sign was posted, but one would be quibbling)
So, say toodle ooo to the trees on that bit of swampy land. Shove over critters, the road is coming through. Today three deer were nibbling on the browse along the shoulder of the road right beside the workmen.
This, for those of you who know the road, is your 'first look' at what is taking place. We want you to know, so you don't get lost driving to your cottage the first time you come up...
The new design will, without doubt, slow folk down. That's not a bad thing. Note the sentence earlier about the deer on the shoulder of the road...
Don't overlook our specials for COUPLES! As well as families and groups, we offer great deals for couples looking to just get away.

Summer is here. The lake and the loons are calling, the cottages are ready... and Environment Canada is predicting a hotter than usual summer -- so where better to spend some of that than at the Lake of Bays, in one of our lakeside cottages. Get out of the city, restore your soul...
We also have some vacancies for the summer still --
We've got a fantastic place to gather, enjoy the scenery, relax by a fire, and spend time with family and friends. Whether a quiet couples' getaway, or a family reunion or a club outing , we've got your cottage waiting.
We'd love to hear from you. The experiences our guests have are precious to us. If you have photos you took at Bondi, we'd love to have those as well. You can email them to Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org

We are very proud of Napster, our tail-painting cat, who uses his lovely artwork to raise money for charities. This lovely little creature passed away July 2015, but left a huge legacy, having raised over $12,000 for various charities through the sale of his artwork. That artwork, through prints and notecards, is still available. Click here to visit Napster's Blog and visit the gallery of his tail-paintings.
Now sold around the world, he was honoured to have his artwork sold around the globe -- he even has a print with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
