Well color me blue. The summer at The Lighthouse is just about over. Weren’t we just packing to haul the gang up for the summer and waiting for our first guest to arrive? What the heck happened???
One thing we do look forward to on the Labour Day long weekend is our now annual big cookout. All the guest come together to celebrate sunshine, campfire smoke (yeah no more ban!) and the memories they’ve made. Everybody contributes and we’ve have an amazing community mashup.
This season has been a heck of a one for dealing with heat. We’re not quite off the grid but about as far as you can go. This means no air conditioning during those humid, awful days. What do we have instead? A gorgeous, clean, cooling lake that just invites you to plant your chair in the water, kick off the flip flops and let Mother Nature do her thing. Bring it on lady! Bear Lake has got you and your humidity beat every time.
We’ve also had our fair share from the Parry Sound forest fires. With safety being one of our top concerns, we had to put a kibosh on campfires for most of the season. Did this ruin anything? Heck no! People sparked up the BBQ that comes with each cottage, took their plates down to the beach and created different summer dinner memories. This weekend it looks like we’ll be able to dodge the smoke and add that bit of carbon to the hot dogs that everyone remembers from their misspent youth 😉
If you’re interested in a little hot dog camping humor, check out this great guy Tim Nutt and what can happen around a campfire 😉
Now we’re a family establishment so the 2nd scenario is unlikely but it’s still funny stuff and we know we’ve all been there one time or another!
This weekend we’re just about a full house. We MIGHT have one cottage left so if you’ve decided that fun, sun and campfires is a great way to end your summer, don’t hesitate to get in touch. You never know.
If you’ve already been off the beaten path with us this summer, THANK YOU!
We really appreciate it and look forward to sharing some of the photos we’ve taken over the season with you on our Facebook page. We want to see your photos too so please don’t hesitate to tag us or drop a post on the page! Shameless FB promo? Yup. Seeing how much fun everybody had this season? Priceless 🙂
We’ve got more news to share from The Lighthouse but for now we’ll say – thanks everybody. It’s been a wild ride and we look forward to seeing you this weekend or next July!
Yours at the Lighthouse,
John, Paula, Mariah, Logan, Beema and Grayson
