As February winds down, we're starting to get really excited about opening up the cottage for the season. How many more weeks of Winter did that groundhog say there would be again? Anyhow we decided that one of the major renovations we'd like to tackle is to winterize the cottage. With the cottage being just off of a year round municipally maintained road and being 14 minutes from Parry Sound, it makes heading up and staying up in the winter pretty easy. Another reason we wanted to winterize was seeing these beautiful pictures taken and sent to us by our neighbouring cottage. Apparently deer, white rabbits, foxes, coyotes and even wolves can frequently be seen during the winter. What an amazing sight that would be. So thanks to Karen, Claude and the kids, for checking in on our cottage and sending us such great shots.
