Seasons come and seasons go. For some the arrival of snow and ice is a blessing. Snow machines, skiing and skating are favourite winter pastimes. The excitement of new snow for kids ‘from one to ninety-two’ heralds a season of another sort. December celebrations of Hunakkah, Kwanza and Christmas make this time of year lively and bright.
Excitement fills the air as once green hillsides turn white. Forest shapes take on new forms leading to dreams of Narnia and other places to explore. While fires may crackle in the hearth with cheerful intensity, seasoning the air with wood smoke, many thoughts turn to hot chocolate and other winter treats. Muskoka, no longer a summer playground sheds its green easily and takes on more than a festive air, outside and in.
Walking along the shore exposes new vistas unseen in summer. The beauty of Muskoka in early winter is like walking in a three dimensional post card! If you’re quiet, you might even hear the forest whisper its greeting. Whether your trek takes you along a groomed path or you’re carving your own, winter at the cottage is magical.
May you and your family find Peace and Joy at this special time of year. Let Muskoka add to your experience with exquisite scenery, frosty nights and sun filled days.
In the New Year we will talk about real estate in 2019 and what we might expect for 2020. Until then, Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you from all of us!
