Donna and Gerry bought this property, all 10 acres of it, in 2004 as a summer retreat, near Durham, Ontario. They own a home in Hanover but wanted to be able to get away to the country on select weekends. A couple of cabins, a spring fed pond, 2 fire pits, a johnny on the spot, their 5th wheel trailer, a well, a horseshoe pit and lots of land for company meant they could open it up to family once in a while.
They started a tradition on the long weekend in August, Civic Holiday, in 2005.
The pond provides everyone with their own self made entertainment. You can swim, float on pool noodles, take the inflatables out for a spin and as you see here, Bill chooses to sail his remote controlled sail boat when there is enough breeze to do so.
The rustic cabin in the woods, named The Hilton, is a favourite spot for a friend of mine, who at least once a year says goodbye to her hectic life in the city and comes away with us for a weekend. Very quaint with all the comforts of home. The johnny is just behind the cabin, nice and convenient!
Here's to Donna and Gerry and looking forward to another great season of camping!
Thanks for popping in, hope to hear from you sometime!
