My kids have been at Kitchi for 6-8 yrs. Past summer my son was counsellor and is returning and my daughter will be doing L1. Good friend of mine went to Kitchi for years in the 70's, (one with the cottage by Mermaid Isl) and his kids have been there since there were 8, that's how my kids ended up there.

Usually the kids will spot the rattlers somewhere in the camp and they'll get the Rangers up to capture them. Don't know if they go on rattler searches anymore.

Its easy to have plenty of time to cruise when you're retired. Wife still working but has summers off. She also loves to sail. Life can't get any better.

Well, here is the real Southern Georgian Bay.

This is what I eat when I am up there. 5 people, 5 different levels of doneness, 1 perfect meal.

And one of the critters that goes with it. Massassuga Rattler that came off of Beausoleil Island. Roughly 3' long. A rattler this big hit my brother on the toe up near Parry Sound. Took almost 2 weeks for the swelling of his ENTIRE leg to come down.

Some of our traffic. Anyone recognize their boat?

That area looks very familiar.

Next time I'm in the area I'm coming to your place for steaks.

Drop in! Just let me know when before you head in. I think I sent you the gps coordiates a while back. 6' minimum water at my dock, mud and weed bottom.

Yes you did. One of favorite evening sunset cruises while staying at our friends cottage, was just past Thompsons I. and then a slow loop thru FryingPan and then back to Mermaid.

What program is the chart from.

Garmin's MapSource. BlueChart 9.5 charts. Something to note is the profusion of dashed lines on that chart. Submarine cables. They are everywhere in Honey Harbour. In our little bay, there is no signage. Our dock is 40' and was designed for smaller (20-25') powerboats so it's best to also drop a hook SW to take some load off the dock. For overnighting, transom to the end of the dock and drop a bow hook off to the SW. Sorry, no shore power! It's almost a 300' run to get power from the cottage. Too damn expensive these days as it would have to be 8ga wiring for the distance.
