Almost Summer

June 17th, 2016

The first day of Summer is officially June 20. So many of us in Manitoba look forward to the long, lazy days of summer. Hopefully, the mosquitos won’t get the better of us and we can also enjoy the evenings as well!

If you’re looking for a great place to spend the summer (well, actually spring, summer, fall and winter), we still have some great lots available at Sunset Point. It’s an especially attractive development because of the year-round access. There are a few lakefront lots available and a number of fantastic lakeview lots for sale at a very reasonable price. The lots all come with municipal (treated) water and are spacious for cottage life owners or year-round living. Inland or lakeview lot owners have access to the lake at two public access points.

Living amongst the calm and beauty of the lake is within your reach – contact us today!

Hooray – it’s the May Long Weekend!

May 18th, 2016

So, what are your plans for the May Long Weekend?  Wash the windows, wipe out the cupboards, clean the shed OR simply enjoy some rest and relaxation and worry about cleaning next time?

Judging by the forecast we’re in for a fairly decent kick-off to lake/camping season. I know everyone has their own stories about torrential downpours, power outages, ice on the lakes still and SNOW! I think (and hope) that other than a bit of rain, we’ll for the most part be able to enjoy the great outdoors with friends and family.

I’ve got a big ‘to do’ list, but most of it includes just having fun. I hope you do the same (the dust will still be there when you come back next time)!

 

Cooler Spring?

April 28th, 2016

Maybe I’m wrong, but this spring feels colder than most. Do you feel the same way? It seems like we’ve barely had a night where the temperature isn’t above 0 degrees celsius.

I know those in the agricultural industry will be busy getting equipment ready and gearing up for seeding, but it just doesn’t seem as though folks will be able to start planting anytime soon.

I remember one of my high school friends would traditionally go for a dip in the lake on May Long Weekend. That is less than a month away. I can’t even imagine dipping my toes in at this point!

According to The Weather Network, the average high in April is 10.7 and the average low is -2.7, so technically I think we’ve pretty much been in that range. I wonder why I’ve been expecting higher temperatures this year?

I’m guessing it’s because I’m anxious for lake life and all that it has to offer – s’mores, great conversations around the fire, time on and in the lake and just enjoying the great outdoors.

I also know that you can’t rush Mother Nature and that I must be patient. Those days will be here soon enough. For now it’s time to enjoy the trees budding, the grass turning green and the birth of all that nature has to offer.
