Labour Day Monday and all of Almaguin is under a Storm advisory and here in Burk’s Falls the Fall Fair is a bit soggy but lots on indoor exhibits, artisans and music to entertain everyone. I have been living in the Almaguin Highlands for the past 34 years and never have I experienced this much rain throughout the spring and summer seasons. My hope is for a glorious, dryer Fall so people can take advantage of the brilliant colour in the hills and have some cottage time before the cold weather sets in. Visitors at our area provincial parks would also appreciate less rain and a bit more sunshine.
I am having a quiet day with my Mom and settling in a comfortable chair with a good book, cup of tea and a snuggle blanket. Even my dogs are napping and having a well deserved lazy day. I am certainly grateful for this day with no work to do….well nothing that can not wait until tomorrow anyway. Many buyer clients were up this past weekend which made busy work days for me and most of the REALTORS® in the area. Today however, Labour Day, should be a day off for most and I am using mine for some R&R.
We are seeing a trend of more people buying waterfront cottages as a compound for extended family or buying a cottage with the intent of building something more substantial for future retirement.
The clean, pollution free air, slower pace of life and more economical cost of living, make our area ideal for couples planning early retirement. Life here allows it’s residents discover all our area has to offer through out the many Villages of Almaguin. Our area is also known as a great place for families and raising children in a wonderful outdoor environment with area nature trails for walking, exploring, biking close to your back yard.
