A couple of weeks ago, I was talking about what you could do on a long weekend. And I hope you had the opportunity to do something special to really enjoy the extra day off. As I’ve mentioned before, for a lot of us to jump in the car and drive off to the Muskokas it’s a lot like work - especially when you get into the heavy traffic coming up from Toronto on the 400 Highway. So what would be a better idea (in my opinion)? What about taking a look at a place on FAWN ISLAND!? The island is approximately 60 Acres in size and has mature trees, and blue canals where you can tie off a boat.
The peaceful feeling on the island has a calming effect on you. There are no cars so you have to walk everywhere you go, automatically giving you fresh air and exercise. It’s nice to walk along the canal and say hello to a neighbour down the way from you. And the river views are second to none!
Then there is Mitchell’s Bay, which has a bunch of great cottages and a spectacular view of Lake St. Clair. You can take a stroll down to the park and watch a sunset. It makes you shake your head when you see how awesome that is! And what about Erieau, with its quaint little town and neat restaurants right by the Bay. Of course, let’s not forget Rondeau or Light House Cove!
These are just a few of the spots around here that are so inviting. Take a drive when you get the chance, and look at all the SUMMER SPOTS that we are fortunate enough to have. SO CLOSE!
