Signs of Spring

Posted: May 11, 0201 | Category: Cottaging | View All Blog Posts

After a long cold winter filled with the adventure of snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice fishing…we yearn for the warmth of spring.

Spring means opening up the cottage and being prepared for a season of fun ahead.  While the to do list may seem long, the rewards of opening camp for the season are great.  All over our region the sound of tink, tink, tink can be heard…what’s that noise? The sound of sap dripping out of the sugar maples and into the metal sap pails.  What a welcome sound that signals the arrival of spring and that joyous sweet taste of Canadian Gold… Is there anything better than Northern Maple Syrup?

When that first trout lily (Dog Tooth Violet) pokes its yellow flower through the snow, we know that spring is well on its way.  Spring wildflowers pop up in a flurry of spectacular colour, with our Ontario Trillium showcasing the beauty of the forest floor.

For nature lovers who like wild edibles, and wildlife photography this flurry of new growth in the spring is a bonanza for wildlife and songbirds eager for the nutrients of spring.  Wildlife viewing and photography experiences peak in both spring and fall in the Loring-Restoule Region.

Fishermen anxiously await the May long weekend and the opening of Pickerel/Walleye fishing.  The fish are hungry this time of year, and there is no better place to be then out on the water.

Our restaurants are the place to be to grab a home-style meal, catch up on local gossip or acquire a fishing tip or two.

Local resorts and lodges are busy opening up for the season and are ready and waiting to make your spring stay a memorable one.
