Cottage Weekend

It was a few weeks back now...

"Within 20 years of Susanna's and Catherine's summer trip in 1872, the whole area had acquired a new name, the Kawartha Lakes (a corruption of the Ojibwa word kawatha, meaning 'bright waters and happy land'), and become an established part of the summer cottaging ritual for many Canadian families."
