    After an increadibly hard and long winter, with record snow fall, I have never been so eager to see grass and yes my boat. We are suppose to be able to put them in in 6-weeks, but I still have a 12 foot snow bank at the end of my driveway!

    Man! I want to go boating!!

    I hear you. I am heading up to our summer cottage on Georgian Bay for Easter and will also check on the boat and take some pictures and post them. I know it will be a whole lot of white, just like last year. Normally (whatever that is these days) the open water of Georgian Bay off of our place is open by now, but the marina would be partly iced still and ice free by April 15th.

    You guys are scaring me.....We are coming up this year for a week vacation at the southern part of Georgian bay. We are bringing up the boat and renting a cottage second week in July... Hopefully you guys have your act together by then and have some good weather!

    Where is the cottage you are renting? Our place is in Souther Georgian bay. If you haven't been here there are a few of us that can give you some ideas of things to do and places to go in our little slice of heaven. Oh, and by July it will be great up here.

    We rented a couple of cottages at driftwood cove. It's a mini family reunion. My motherinlaw kept their boat there for years, so I know the area well. We haven't been up there for a few years so looking forward to getting back.

    We will definitely get out to Beckwith, Midland and work our way down the Trent for a day

    we actually stayed at Driftwood Cove in the motel section once upon a time when we lived in Ontario. We dreamed about buying our first boat back then. There a lot of beautiful boats in their marina. It is at the end of the Trent Severn Waterway. You can cruise North and enjoy the cottages along the water. If you want to go into Georgian Bay, you will need to go through the lock.

    2nd week of July is a great time to be there. You will,love it. Midland is not on the waterway though.

    So here is the view from my breakfast table at the cottage. Still lots of ice out there on the main bay.

    Here is the marina. They have the underwater fans/bubblers going to try to start the thaw, but lots of ice out there.

    And a spectacular sunset from last night from the cottage. We get some great sunsets to look at:
