Gowganda Lake, Ontario - April 24

From charitable events with an emphasis on support of communities in the Highlands, to a chance to meet real-time Iditarod adventurer Hank DeBruin to African Film Night and much more, there is always something happening in the Haliburton Highlands that appeals to a diverse range of interests. Speaking of ‘diverse’, that is one word to describe south eastern Ontario weather of late. I snapped some southern Ontario webcam shots today, April 24, which should give you an idea of  conditions in the area right now. Pretty pictures/cold weather.

‘Twas long ago my 5 year-old son documented some of his time on Maple Lake in Ontario Canada with his first camera:
Here is part of his perspective on Maple Lake:

Rain reflections on Maple Lake - 1997

If I recall we waited a while for it not to be raining to go for a boat ride that summer but it always seemed to be…so we went anyway.

Through Chris spent quite a bit of time on Maple Lake he never really took to it the way I had. For one, he’s not all that thrilled with swimming, which the lake is perfect for.

Happy Easter long weekend!

Despite the non-PC-ness of making a huge fuss over the Christian holiday, it’s still important to know what is happening in the Haliburton Highlands this weekend and beyond and what the weather will be like. scroll down and click the thumb nails for full size to find out What’s Happening in the Haliburton Highlands This Week!

Sunday, April 8 will reach a high temperature of about 55° F with a chance of showers later in the day, so bring an umbrella with your baskets and bonnets.

We rarely go anywhere on Easter Sunday but several things have changed the family dynamic landscape of late including the death of my father-in-law, our recent purchase of a car that could safely shuttle our entire family, including the dogs, all the way to grandma’s house (1 hour away) and not incidentally, the fact that grandma has a fenced-in yard and the dogs are invited! (I work from home so the two, who are Schipperke and Schip mix are not used to long periods alone–plus ‘she’ is really old and frail). So off to Wonder Lake, Illinois we’ll be on Sunday. No Reese’s PNB eggs for me this year. We are bringing a massively decadent devil’s food and fondant half ‘egg’ cake and braided (coloured) bread (both from the best bakery in the area) to dinner as well as a veggie tray. I’m hoping to cozy up to the veggie tray before doing too much damage otherwise.
