Excursions and Local Attractions
We offer daily activities depending on the season and weather. In summer, we go swimming boating, canoeing and fishing on the lakes and rivers in our area.We enjoy hiking on the 100's of acres of ponds hills and forest adjacent to our house and bicycling on our quiet country roads. We like to golf at either of the two golf courses nearby or play a nice game of badminton in the backyard.
In winter, we go skating, cross-country skiing, dogsledding, snowshoeing, and icefishing. Of course a Canadian adventure is not complete without a semi-professional hockey game experience in the city closest to our house, Peterborough.
In all seasons, we play games together, visit or have friends over for meals, go bowling, play ping pong and volleyball, and even sing a little bit of home Karaoke sometimes.
