From where I sit Algonquin Park looks pretty special

Published By on June 14th, 2005 in Edge Insider

I’m looking at the hills in Algonquin Park from the lakeside gazebo here at the Edge. It’s a sunny day with puffy fair weather clouds overhead. The wind blows gently from the southwest sending ripples ashore. Earlier today, Tim and I went for a paddle and we passed a sea kayaker and a rower heading into the Emable Du Fond for a few nights in Algonquin Park.

It’s not that unusual now to see different craft than canoes heading into Algonquin Park here. There are some large lakes including North Tea and Manitou that are perfect for sea kayaking. We have such huge interest in our newsea kayaking in Algonquin trips this summer that our first trip is sold out! We’re offering these trips with a first full day at the Edge to get acquainted with how to sea kayak so it’s a beginner-friendly Algonquin Park Sea Kayaking trip.

The flower gardens at Northern Edge Algonquin are in full bloom and more beautiful than ever thanks to Martha’s concerted efforts. She’s also planted the veggie gardens so that some of our late summer trips into Algonquin Park will feature garden delights grown right here.

It’s the end of another long beauty day, as I see Greg heading out for a swim. Perhaps it’s time to sign off from the Algonquin Park Web log and get ready for Detroit Piston Basketball tonight. It’s the Finals and we’re hoping the series against San Antonio gets turned around tonight – well, some of us are. Regardless of the outcome, I’ll be awakening to a pretty special place here on the edge of Algonquin Park again tomorrow.
