One of the big differences between Northern California and Northern Ontario is the bug population. Mosquitoes, black flies, horse flies, deer flies, May flies, spiders, moths, gnats... You name it, it thrives by the hot and humid lake shore.
It wouldn't be so bad if we could peacefully co exist, but some of these creatures take one look at us and the dinner bell rings. The mosquitoes buzz, bite and cause itching like heck.
Enter this peaceful place down by the shore. It is bug free and beautiful in a summer sprinkle of rain. We have been enjoying it so much. Thank you to my wonderful husband for making it magically appear. The best surprise ever!
