2017 Summer Vacation

For the second year running, we’ve rented a cottage with 3 other families. Last year, people said we were crazy, but it worked out so well we decided to do it again this year. The 16 of us got a monster 7 bedroom cottage on Esson Lake, just south of Haliburton for 7 days in…

Gardens Plus

At the beginning of July, our camera club visited a local garden store called Gardens Plus.
