|Welcome to the Family Cottage|
This is the family cottage,
located on Georgian Bay in north central Ontario, Canada. It has been the family summer getaway
location for over 50 years.|
The cottage is located on an island, which helps get you "away from it all." There are many other
cottages in the area, but they are not located right on top of one another, so everyone can have
their own space. Since the cottages are on islands, everyone has to have access to a boat in order to get
to their cottages.
|This is a view of our little harbor (and disintegrating boathouse!), which gives us
a perfect place to park the boat and in which to go swimming. The waters of Georgian Bay are
usually warm enough throughout the summer to go swimming, generally hanging around the low 70s.
Fishing is a popular sport among some in this area, though the take is not like it was when my grandfather first bought the place. But, you can still get decently-sized bass and the occasional Northern Pike. There are various ongoing local efforts to restock the area.
