Port Carling

Spring Art Tour

June 9, 2013 in Arts and Crafts, Muskoka, Port Carling

Twice a year Muskoka has an Art Tour. There are more than 40 artists and artisans in central Muskoka and many of them open their studios and workshops for the curious and interested. This weekend the spring tour is in full flight. A bright, sunny day with warm summer breezes is here to complement the event. Even the draw bridge in Port Carling seems to be leading the way … follow the lines!

Back in Business

June 6, 2013 in Muskoka, Port Carling

Flooding doesn’t end when the water recedes. For those affected, that’s when the work begins. Duke’s is no exception. Quite likely the most affected business in Port Carling from this spring’s high water, it’s good to see the doors open again and people working. Things may not be back to normal – whatever normal is – but they’re back!

Postcard perfect

June 4, 2013 in Muskoka, Port Carling, summer

One of those picture perfect postcard kind of days. Clear blue skies, no wind to speak of. Temperatures in the low 20’s. A special day – and then, through the locks passes Wenonah on a cruise to Windermere and beyond. A great day to sit on deck and watch Muskoka slip by. I was standing at the top of the hill in Port Carling looking northward over Boatworks – a marina located in the Johnston buildings which were erected in the early 20’s – and there she was. Scenes like this really happen!

Summer vibe

May 18, 2013 in Cottage, Lakes, Muskoka, Port Carling, summer

The Hub of the Lakes, is bustling. Cottagers arrived early for the first weekend of summer and Port Carling edged towards Port Crawling as the pace of traffic slowed to a walk. Summer is back in town. Muskoka has a new vibe. In celebration, the first sunset of summer took on its own vibe. Electric!

Unpacking summer

May 9, 2013 in Cottage, Muskoka, Port Carling, summer

For months the shops of Steamboat Bay in Port Carling have stood empty. A little forlorn when compared to the hustle and bustle of cottagers and tourists in the summer season. Today the retailers of Port Carling are getting ready. They’re unpacking summer. Shops are filling up. Forlorn has turned to happy. We learned that summer ….comes in a box!

Life’s a beach?

April 27, 2013 in Muskoka, Port Carling, spring

People love to sit at the water’s edge at Turtle Jack’s in Port Carling. Trouble is, the edge has moved. To sit there now, you have to go beyond the edge. Life’s no longer a beach. It’s awash.

Spring Detour

March 20, 2013 in Joseph, Lakes, Muskoka, Muskoka, Port Carling, Rosseau, snow, spring

First day of spring and with it almost 15 cm of snow and a little excitement too. A fuel transport jackknifed in the centre of Port Carling, spilling some of its load. The main road was closed for hours whiloe Hazmat did the cleanup. People travelling to Glen Orchard, Bala and Lake Joseph from Bracebridge had to detour – not just around the block. Around a lake – either Lake Muskoka or Lake Rosseau – adding at least 40 km to the journey. Some people didn’t get to work and kids travelling to highschool got the day off. Welcome to spring!First Day of Spring
