ON A MORE POSITIVE NOTE

Lady Wolf wrote;

I keep reading about all the so called issues, and, frankly, I have had enough of the negatives of having a cottage on Leech Lake.

Sooooooooo, this is my idea: Why don't we try to get as many postings as we can about what is GOOD about having a cottage here?

OR stories about the past on the lake.....the fun, the parties, the scares

I will start it off with this wee story about my introduction to Leech Lake.

I came here for the first time about 9 yrs ago....I was so very amazed that you could see all the way to bottom of this clear, quiet lake. That night the stars were so bright, not dimmed by the lights of the city, they had no competition, these diamonds in the sky!!!!

My grandchildren love coming to Muskoka and to Leech Lake, tho some boaters forget there are small children trying to swim in the shallows and their wake knocks them over (another great reason to limit the size of boats) they have learned to swim, canoe, kayak.....have had the joy of making that first trip around the shark's tooth all by themselves!!!

We love coming out and sitting.....listening to the sounds of nature (not LOUD music from across the lake) so we often come during the week.....we have seen mink, bear, deer, a mother duck with 10 babies, beaver, and many more of muskoka's REAL natives....LOL

Yes, there are some problems, will always be when u cram people of so many different ways of thinking together, but all in all.......THE COTTAGE IS FOR ENJOYMENT FOR EVERYONE.....and all i see missing.....to make that possible.....is a little respect for your neighbors.....turn down the music...others may not like it.....dim the lights....turn them off at nite.....watch what your wake is doing to the shoreline.....in this rush up hurry world of ours, we often forget......the cottage is for getting away from all that........for sitting quietly with those we love.......listening to the sounds of the loon calling under a bright starry sky.....

HAVE A GREAT SUMMER FOLKS!

That was an attempt to be more positive? It just sounded like a thinly veiled attempt to be positive and just repeated past complaints about "light pollution" and noise.

Perhaps if you were more tolerant you wouldn't be trying to find such petty things to complain and rant about.

out at the lake on sat/sun...water is good....loons were around...some folks were chasing them, please..don't chase them, it scares them, and they may decide to live elsewhere....and i would miss them..bet others would too...it was quiet out at the lake, great time for sitting back and watching the natural inhabitants!

out at the lake for the weekend + a few days....pretty good weekend...except for the one boat pulling a tube with exhaust that would choke a tuna....was awful..the smell of oil and gas..but other than that....we had a wonderful time, kayaking, visiting with friends, and enjoying our cottage....hope everyone did!

ahhhhhhh......closing the cottage for the last time...hoping to sell it in the spring...we are a 3 season cottage...always have been, but are thinking the new owners will either totally redo the cottage or build a new house that is year round....anyhoo.....closing up brought a lot of memories of laughter, love, and living at the lake......
leech lake is a small lake....but has so much to offer families....the most important being time together....
have a great winter folks!!!

That is ridiculous people do not come up to the cottage just for day use, we also enjoy the night time and like to sit out and enjoy the evening and go swimming at night so that means yes there will be lights on and I have never found that the lights have ever stopped me from star gazing or watching the bats fly over the water. I will continue to use lights at night other wise the only choice is to go to bed as soon as it is dark.
