The "Starry Summer Night 2016" ended  "where we saw the constellations reveal themselves, one star at time ..."  Stars included Rob Walisser and his stellar water taxi service, the talented Sean and Carol of Il Fornello and their wonderful kitchen team, to the servers (who most of you recognize from both marinas),  Mountain Trout House, Muskoka Brewery and Flat Rock Cellar staff, Dave Fortier and his team for A/V, Rachel, who pulls all the event space together so beautifully each year, Dave our auctioneer, Ken the oyster shucker, our live and silent auction donors and to all of you, our guests.  
 
What a night. We are happy (overwhelmed actually) at the incredible generosity of the people on this lake.  Mooreland's is, too.   The sold out event raised over $90,000 with donations still coming in!
 
The guests of Starry Summer Night stepped up and in addition to the successful live and silent auction items -- 24 wonderfully deserving kids will be "sent to camp" because of the generosity of our guests. 
 
See you next year (August 19, 2017) and Thank You!!

Last Saturday we were driving through Algonquin Park in the sunshine. Every pond and the ditch at the roadside were filled with water. It has rained every day since and so where are we now?
 
The Kawagama Dam has been wide open for a number of days now, but clearly the inflow from the Park has exceeded the capacity of the dam to release water and so the lake has been rising. I would estimate approximately one (1) foot over the past 5 days to a point where at least where I am, the lake level is flush with the top of my deck on my dock. In other words, levels which are well above Target and indeed above the top of the Normal Operating Zone. Fortunately winds have been fairly light and today are from the northeast, which is good news for the eastenders. Precipitation amounts, so far, are less than the Toronto/St. Lawrence Valley, and it is a drizzle more or less at the moment. Under the circumstances, I don`t believe that we can fault anybody or any organization, and will have to wait it out.
