We were fortunate to be able to spend few days with friends who live in Gravenhurst. Not only did they give us several tours of the area, we got to sleep in a house for the first time since leaving home!
This is cottage country and Lakes abound in the area. It is also part of the rocky Canadian Shield. The combination of lakes and rocks made for some spectacular scenery.
We drove to Bala and saw where the water flows from a lake into Moon River. In Port Carling we wandered by the water with vistas so beautiful I was moved to tears.
In Windermere we strolled through a grand hotel overlooking a lake.
This area is very scenic and we were privileged to visit a few cottages. Even the home of our hosts had a treed area behind and was so close to nature a chipmunk scampered over my foot!
This is another area I’d love to spend more time in.
