We know you all miss Wabatongushi Lake, so we’re bringing it to you at home with a webcam!
It’s that time of year again when the leaves are bright yellow, mornings are crisp with frost, and the loons are starting to lose their summer plumage. Fall has arrived on Wabatongushi Lake and winter is right on its tail.
On Wabatongushi Lake there is a longstanding tradition of running cedar strip boats. Some of our guests have even purchased their own cedar strip boat to use on home waters after experiencing the stability, comfort, and unique style of a Giesler. If you’ve ever wondered where our boats come from and how they’re made by hand, we have it all here!
We’re sending out a song and a story this weekend!
Some of you might remember John Legg, who worked with us back in 2012. John is from London (England, not Ontario!) originally and now lives in Toronto. He’s an amazing guitarist and would often entertain us on Loch Island. His chill vibe was contagious and we still miss him playing guitar on the deck at dinner time. Now John is teaching guitar in Toronto. He sent us a little sample with well wishes during these odd times. Enjoy! (After the video, continue with reading the story below…)
As we had such positive reception to the post about the Cline Mine, we’ve got another piece of Lochalsh area mining history for you, this time at Goudreau.
