BINGO is not a game just for OLD People!


We play BINGO with our guests twice a week under our waterfront shelter. Nancy and I have recently graduated from the Fern School of BINGO (At Fern Resort, they play BINGO 3 times a day, everyday!)

Adults and children are welcome. It's relaxed play. No dabbers allowed - we use shutter cards.

Nancy is on the lookout for BINGO prizes throughout the year.

There are prizes for all ages and everyone gets a prize whether they yell BINGO ! or not.

Don't sleep in - You'll miss the Deer


Not that early this morning, at around 8 AM. I was walking out the door to get the newspapers. On the edge of our driveway, I saw some bushes move so I stopped. There was a deer eating tree leaves, who then as I was watching, went across to eat some of the wildflowers Nancy and Suzanne planted.

I walked up very close to him before he ran off.

Our Oldest Guest

Ada and her daughter Anne and Anne's husband Ken, have been coming to Beauview for 13 years. Ada is our oldest guest in 2008. I can't tell you her age because you don't tell a lady's age!

She always has a smile on her face.

Thank you for returning each year!

Last One Standing

This is a game that you play on the water trampoline. The object is to run and jump around as fast as you can to make everyone else dizzy to lose their balance. The last one standing is the winner. In this video, its hard to tell who wins because everyone falls into the lake!

Pirates on the High Seas of Lake of Bays

An afternoon on the water with family. With a little imagination - a paddle boat turns into a pirate ship and the water trampoline becomes a fort.

Add water guns and ... Prepare to be boarded! YAARRR Mateys!

Don't Believe the Weatherman!

Seeing is believing! Here's a video taken this morning of the Beauview waterfront just before 10 Am.
Gord is showing how wrong the weather forecasting is this Summer. On the 7:30am news this morning on Barrie A Channel, the broadcaster said "there will be no sun in Muskoka today."

The weather forecasts have been very negative this summer. The temperatures get hotter than they say they will get and we get sun, when the forecast says rain!

Gord thinks its because they are jealous - we are on holidays and they aren't!

We also have a webcam out our window, that takes photos every 4 hours during the day. http://www.beauview.com/webcampage.htm

Amazing Rainbow


Tonight is the night for our welcome BBQ for our weekly guests. Though it sprinkled on and off today, there was no rain during our get together until the end.

Then it poured! But after that we were rewarded with a beautiful rainbow that went from one end of our bay to the other. I couldn't fit it all into one photo.


Here's a picture of Judy and Vino admiring the rainbow.

Fresh Trout for Dinner

One of our guests, Joe, is an avid fisherman. He gets up early, before the rest of us are awake, to go out fishing on Lake of Bays.
He's after Lake Trout so he has all the right equipment to get the bait down to 80 feet where the fish are.

Today he caught six trout, threw four back and kept his limit of two. Then he offered one to us for our dinner. He even cleaned and filleted it! Nancy put it in the oven to bake packed in foil, surrounded by a special sauce and spices.

What a great meal! Thanks Joe!
