Last night was beautiful up here. One of the nicest things about having the marina is not having to leave the lake behind on sunday nights. We were outside and chatted with a few cottagers on the side deck and commented that for the third night in a row, the dragonfly population seems to be growing this year. There are swarms of dragonflies at the waters edge at dusk -- maybe a good sign to affect the mosquito population.
With the surprise appearance of the OPP today on the lake, this is a good time to remind cottagers that if you do not yet have your boating licence, we do written tests here at the marina, takes about an hour and if you pass - you get a temporary licence immediately.
what a difference 1/2 hr makes...the deck was full of people finishing their dinner, the sky was beautiful and the air was still very warm. One table left with kids in a tube for one last ride. We closed up and now look at the sky, the north end is a blurr, the rain is coming down buckets. hope you all made it back to your cottages dry. Silver linings...maybe it will break the humidity. And at least it happened after 8pm and everyone got to enjoy a dry day. Aside from the thick air -- never saw this coming.
Among other choices, homemade burgers and great wings are at Anstruther Marina's restaurant but if you want to try something different and you like schnitzel, the Swiss Bear in Apsley (hwy 28) now has great 'take out' schnitzel on a bun at their new food truck.

The turtle release date is on a Monday unfortunately.
Monday Aug 17th at 11am and Travis Cameron will meet the interested group at the public launch
Tentatively (still a soft date), Park Biologist Travis Cameron will be returning to Anstruther on Sat Aug 22nd at 10am at the public launch to release the newly hatched turtles.
The release date is all subject to the actual hatch date but if all goes according to his estimations, it should be on Aug 22. Release must be done within a 4 day window of hatching. We will post any updates on changes as the info becomes available.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
