MarketWATCH Muskoka 9 October 2019
Season of mellow fruitfulness. In these parts a few tomatoes still cling to the vine, pumpkins mound yellow in the garden and, as you saw last week, cranberries glow red in the bog. Fall colours are at their peak and fall fruits are lush and plump.
Talking about plump, you should see turkeys in Muskoka! They’re everywhere! The other day driving from Port Carling I actually ducked as a couple tried to stay airborne over my car. They were flying from one side of the road to the other -and not full of grace either. More like balls with wings than birds, they defied principles of aerodynamics and truth.
Surprisingly on the waterfront real estate front, the same number of properties came to market as sold (30) in the area we monitor daily. Perfect balance. It’s still busy and as long as the weather holds, is likely to remain so. Take a look!
We have much to be thankful for. A beautiful country, health, family, friends. Whether you mark this Thanksgiving in a big way or quietly, partying or walking in the woods, enjoy what Canada has to offer. We are so fortunate! From our families to yours, Happy Thanksgiving! And keep an eye out for flying turkeys!!
