Life, love and language

Weekend at Pigeon Lake

We went to Pigeon Lake for the weekend.  A three hour drive door to door (on the way back – on the way there, due to stops for gas and coffee and missing our turnoff from 13W, it took 4 hours)  We didn’t take our boat with us as we only had one full day there and planned to explore a little.

The condo-cottage was comfortable and well equipped other than bedding and towels which we had to take with us.  A barbecue and chairs on the deck,  a fire pit and a white chain fence surrounding a green lawn made sitting outside very inviting, even without the bonus of the lake being just across the road from us.

We went for a number of walks around the little hamlet of Mulhurst Bay and along the lakeside.  Then spent Saturday afternoon driving around the lake which was fun, although much of the time the road takes you away from the water.  There are many little side roads to explore which do take you down to the beaches, but we’ll need to go back again to see them all.

Mulhurst Bay is on the north side of the lake.  Driving down the south side we came upon the Village at Pigeon Lake which is a quaint little village with a number of shops. We did some shopping for our evening barbecue and sat outside one of the shops eating ice cream.

Sherry also had some fun exploring.

Evenings were spent playing rummy kub (of course).  Despite a sinus headache which plagued me all weekend we had a lovely time and will return, next time with the boat and fishing gear.
