The G8 Summit, a meeting of world leaders, is being held in Huntsville on June 25 – 26, 2010. Highway 60 will be closed in front of Deerhurst resort - from Highway 11 to (almost) Highway 35. There will be a detour off Highway 11 after Bracebridge – take Highway 117 East towards Baysville & Dorset, then Highway 35 north to Dwight, and east (right) onto Highway 60 into Algonquin Park.
We were approached by a number of consulates wanting to stay at Arowhon Pines. We told them about our food, our fabulous location in the middle of the woods, the great canoe and hiking routes and all the wildlife they might see. They asked us about our television, telephone, internet and cell phone services.
They never called back.
The G20 Summit being held in Toronto, June 26 – 27, 2010 has been labelled “the biggest security detail that Canada has ever seen”. If you ever needed an excuse to escape the city, this would be it! Yikes!
We have lovely rooms by the lake and a peaceful and quiet atmosphere!
SUMMER IN ALGONQUIN PARK
Canada Day Long Weekend
Yoga Retreat - 4 days of yoga, meditation, canoeing and hiking. Visit: www.wolfdenexpeditions.ca
August 12 and 13 Meteor Showers
We have a new telescope and it will be by the boat dock on many nights - come join us! On August 12 and 13 we’ve invited a professional astronomer who will show us the wonders of a summer night sky – stars, constellations, clusters and galaxies. He has a MALLINCAM which will show you on a computer screen what we see in the sky. This weekend is also the PERSEIDS Meteor Shower, one of the best to observe, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at their peak. Weather permitting, this has the potential to be a spectacular show.
