Summer 2021: Get Back Out There!

By Gloria Hildebrandt

Summertime is when we get outdoors more, and away from home a bit. This year we suggest you explore some Escarpment areas that may be new to you. Have you walked past the striking homes at Grimsby Beach? Their colourful exteriors celebrate a fascinating history.

How about a powwow? If you’re on Manitoulin Island or close to other First Nations’ populations, you may be able to take in the colour, movement and sounds of these traditional celebrations.

Some of the most spectacular Escarpment views can best be seen from the Bruce Trail. Late last summer our student employee prepared a report of hiking one loop of the trail with her two dogs.

Public and private gardens are in full glory these days. Why not tour your neighbourhood and enjoy those of dedicated gardeners close to you? They’re sure to be delighted by your interest. We share our exploration of Maureen Bailey’s Georgetown country English cottage borders.

New this issue is a brief work of fiction written by…me! If readers enjoy fiction, we’ll try to include more of it in future. We’d love to know what people think of it.

  • This summer is definitely going to be the time to get out and enjoy nature! I can’t wait to get out to some of the beautiful attractions our area has to offer!

  • I’m really lucky living out here in Dundas; the Niagara Escarpment puckers here, so we’re snuggled in the Valley with Escarpment to the North, West and South of us! I have discovered so many riches in my ‘neck of the woods’. No wonder this place was once called ‘Paradise’ — but it always is to me!
