Last Monday was my first boat ride of the year.  I climbed on a boat just by the gravel docks between Port Lambton and Sombra and rode over to beautiful Fawn Island.  For me, I guess this opens the door for all the ‘water events’ that will be taking place over the next few months.  It’s a great feeling to be cruising across the water to the Island on a warm Spring day.

The island itself is just coming to life as the folks who own properties there start to come back for another season.  I’m always surprised to talk to people from our area who have never been around the island.  It really is a hidden treasure.  And  when I hear about folks wanting to get to a cottage up north, which often means driving through crazy traffic on the 400 series highway to spend a weekend, then fighting traffic again on Sunday night coming home, it makes me shake my head a bit.

Changing gears a bit, this weekend will be the celebration of Easter, and I hope you will be able to take your kids (or grandkids) out for an Easter egg hunt if you haven’t already done so.  The Knights of Pythias are holding a hunt at Kinsmen Park on Saturday, April 20th, starting at 11:00 am.  Here’s hoping the weather will be good for this fun outing as well as all the other family activities you have planned for this special celebration.  HAPPY EASTER!
