A typical summer experience in Huron is heading up to the cottage for a long weekend or week-long vacation. Last weekend, my friend rented a cottage for a winter wonderland escape. I’m sure many of you don’t think of cottaging in the winter, but many of these accommodations are available all year round!

We had a few leisurely drinks and snacks and played some card games. The next day we had decided on winter fun activities, including hiking/snowshoeing along the beach, tobogganing and general snow play!

I had to head out to meet some other friends for dinner in Bayfield, but the rest of the vacationers went to Shannahan’s Quality meats in Goderich and got a huge Metzger beef loin that they roasted for dinner!

What a great time we had! It reminded me of being a kid again.
