Dunlop Lodge an Ontario Gem – Wilderness Retreat

Recently, I had the privilege of staying at a picturesque cabin in the woods, on the grounds of Dunlop Lodge Wilderness Retreat, set in the rolling forested hills of Elliott Lake. Amidst the striking fall colours of our beautiful Ontario forest, Dunlop Lodge is a getaway paradise.

All year round, this quiet, family lodge welcomes wilderness lovers to discover the vast beauty of Elliott Lake, Ontario. Right on Dunlop Lake, the lodge offers summer water sports, fall hikes and rugged trails for ATVs, mountain bikers, winter snowshoeing enthusiasts, ice fishing lodging, and spring thaw beauty to explore. Perfect for family getaways, special events and even quiet retreat times.

Holi – Celebration of Spring

Holi – tradition of celebrating spring:

“Celebrating the colors
Of our beautiful relationship,
I wish you and your family
All the bright hues of life!!”
**Have a Colorful Holi** ref link

Sometimes all you have is the phone in your pocket.

Don’t let that stop you from capturing a most wonderful moment in your life. I hope you enjoy this quick capture of iphone photos, taken as I enjoyed the welcoming of spring with this beautiful festival – Holi.

Hot July – Flowers Up Close and Personal

The heat of July works its magic. Flowers bloom. The bees are out in full force. Taking time to enjoy this splendour, I want to share what I love most about the hot days of July: beautiful wild flowers, up close and personal.
