Dusk Dances – Last Night is Sunday the 22nd!
I hope you all are managing to stay cool and are bracing yourself for a really hot-weather day on Monday. No better time to be in the Highlands relaxing by or in one of the many beautiful, bountiful lakes after you have headed out to enjoy the many fun and charity-oriented activities that the Highlands offer. On the menu in the coming days and weeks are dusk dances, yoga classes, dog pedicures for charity, biking, music, summer zumba, opera lessons, a charity golf classic and more!
As usual, I’m including this week’s 14-day weather outlook. We’ve reached a point now that part of our vacation time is in the forecast and it really does not look bad. I’m glad of the warmer temperatures and I don’t mind the rain because we all know–it’s needed! The warmth and wet makes the bugs happy, too as you can see in the bug forecast. Sometimes, Deet (bug repellant) is a cottager’s best friend!

Who: Ron Hynes
When: Sunday, May 12 at the Wild Moose in Haliburton. It’s Mother’s Day in the U.S.–Canada too, right? So take your mum out Sunday night for some dinner and entertainment. It’ll be a fun time!

Highlands Festival Singers
I’ve done “Festival’ and other group singing. It’s fun. And this show would be fun to check out, I think! At a nice venue too–the Northern Lights Pavilion.

Haliburton, Ontario, Canada - 2.12.12
Have I mentioned that I’m a big fan of late spring, of summer and of early fall in the Haliburton Highlands? Full-on wintertime anywhere tends to be the time when I most wish to be elsewhere (Chicago area – right now- springs to mind). However, the people of the Haliburton Highlands area, who do indeed know what full-on winter feels like, never cease to impress me with the fun-for-everyone activities of all kinds that run year-round. There is nothing ‘dead’ about the ‘dead of winter in the Haliburton Highlands. Want to get just a taste of the great times in store when you spend time in the Haliburton area in February ? Read on!

When I see shots like this one, I want to immediately winterize the cottage and never leave!
Martinis and Manicures at the Wild Moose
I am so impressed with the creativity in the offerings that the folks at the Wild Moose display year-round. I enjoyed the Wild Moose with my spouse last summer and we can’t wait to go back!
When I was growing up, spending my summers on Maple Lake (nearest town: West Guilford) the village of Minden was akin to the younger sister of Haliburton. Nowadays, Haliburton is as bursting with activity as it ever has (and more!) but Minden seems to have really grown up. There are so many family-friendly events and activities going on in the Minden area, if you haven’t taken a closer look in recent years I invite you to begin doing so right now!
