A beautiful fall day on Wednesday. It started out with dense fog and frost on the ground that was quickly replaced by bright sunshine and blue sky. The leaves are pretty much gone after the wind last weekend, but the day was still quite nice with the mercury reaching the low 60F range. It looks like it will be a beautiful weekend ahead. Lots of sunshine and seasonal to slightly above seasonal temperatures. A good cottage close up weekend for anyone who has not already completed that chore.
Limerick Lake Lodge is in booth 2410 (on a corner near the entry to Hall 2 from Hall 1) at the fall ATV and Snowmobile show at the International Center near Pearson airport this weekend.
The marina store is open 8 to 5 on Saturdays through the end of the month.
A re-stocked supply of the "Canadian Backwoods Coloring Book" is in the store. The book contains three pages that are created from paintings that were done by local artist Ketha Newman and are of Limerick Lake. They are available in the marina store for $16.95. With adult coloring books all the rage these days, it makes a great gift for the Limerick Lake enthusiast. There are also 2 copies of the Limerick History book remaining. These are the last new copies. They are $50.
I recently got permission from a land owner on the north east end of the lake to install an Internet signal repeater on his property. That will bring coverage to virtually 100% of Limerick Lake. The plan is to do that project in November to be ready for the 2018 season. To inquire about service please send us a message and we will see if it is available at your location. For seasonal residents the service is a flat $300 per year. (plus $200 installation the first year)
Into a quiet time of year for real estate activity: #310, water access in Greens Bay is still listed as well as #316 Greens Bay that was listed recently. Both are lovely places in that bay. Finally, there is an up-scale road access cottage on the north-east end of the lake listed. It was just reduced again, now to $759k.
