    I've actually grown up hearing about the Lake of Bays, and friends with cottages there, but don't remember much about being there. Just out of the Muskoka area, around the Algonquin Park area, near Haliburton... Oh ok, up in "Cottage Country" So, finally this past Thanksgiving Weekend, the sun was shining, and I took my parents up for a drive to friends' cottage on 10 Mile Bay, part of the Lake of Bays area. This was between Dwight (on Hwy 60) and Dorset on Hwy 35. The sun was shining... oh I said that alreay... and it was just one of those wonderful days where it is time to go and enjoy the trees.

Lake of Bays Warnings and Dangers

    Close inspection of bear damage 1 more image

    Campers are warned about having food, and garbage hung out of the way. Cottagers should heed that warning too. Friends awoke to the sounds of an animal outside their cottage. They thought it was a raccoon or something small, but it turned out to be a bear trying to get at the garbage - through the wall! Wasn't the brightest of bears - going through the door would've been the easier and closest way... however, they weren't going to tell him/her that!!! Anyway... they have some repairs to make to their wall!
