“Spring is when you feel like whistling, even with a shoe full of slush.”Doug Larson
It’s that wonderful time of the year when your bones start aching for the warmer weather you know is on the way – a sunny day might entice you to take off your winter coat and brave the sun in your T-shirt just to feel its rays on your skin. It has been a long winter, and we are so glad spring has arrived.
Welcome to the Spring 2021 Issue of Cottage Country Lifestyle Magazine. We welcome you to this issue with fresh reads and fresh ideas for a fresh spring season. Spring brings with it such change, and it will be a welcome sight after a long winter of stay-at-home; soon we will be roaming the lakes and hillsides of Cottage Country with the warm sun shining down on us.
In this issue, you will find lots of information about preparing your home and waterfront cottage for the coming summer season. With maintenance and upgrades on your mind we have many trades showcasing their specialties in this issue. With record numbers of new watercraft being sold, docks and lifts have been hot topics and we have information on both for you.
We have new recipes that will be sure to make your tummy rumble, and design ideas to freshen up things for the new season. Ready for some fun on the water? There is a great read about the new must-haves for getting active on the lake.
So, take some you-time, curl up with the window open and the spring breeze blowing in. Give this issue a read-through and let us know what you think. We love hearing from our readers, especially on social media!
We want to offer our sincere thanks to all the hard-working folks in Cottage Country. Without the ongoing support of our “Frontline Workers” in many day-to-day jobs we would be living a much different life. We thank you all for your dedication, your love and strength throughout these tough times.
