Rain Can’t Dampen Our Guests Spark!

Happy Canada Day eh?!?

Well we’re a full house this weekend which is AWESOME! Guests have safely arrived to enjoy the long weekend and yesterday’s blue skies looked to promise a heavenly weekend. Today? Well, today is a bit soggy to say the least. Has that bothered our guests? Heck no! In their own words – we’re just happy to be here 🙂 Isn’t that amazing?

This is one of the many reasons we do what we do. Even when the weather doesn’t cooperate, the peace you find off the beaten path makes a few drops of rain (ok, more than a few drops) worth it. Sparklers crossed the weather will clear out in time for us to enjoy some time around the campfire and enjoy each others’ company. After all – what’s more Canadian than enjoying the great outdoors, passing around s’mores and sharing a laugh? I can’t think of anything unless you throw some maple syrup on it!

Weather like this makes me really appreciate our gazebo which gives everybody a place to gather when the sun hides out. Grab a pack of cards and you’ve got a euchre tournament just waiting to happen. Curl up with a book and hot cup of tea and take in the views of the lake. Play a game while listening to the rain patter on the roof. Peace. Ahhhhhh ….

Yours from the Lighthouse,

John, Paula and the family

John and Paula Boyd have a loooong history of making people feel welcome. Always the first ones to offer their home for a family or friend get together, they've never hesitated to offer hospitality. When looking for a business opportunity that could put their love of community and desire to build something for their family together, the idea to purchase a camping resort came up. Never ones to shy away from a challenge, they've jumped in with both feet to make The Lighthouse Cottages and Camping an extension of their home.
