A calm Lake Ontario
Hubby checking things out...
Lots more trees than our current location
Can't believe that Labor Day is right around the corner. Seems like it was just Spring and we were talking about selling or moving our camp. Now a whole season has almost past and the decision hanging over our heads! We have the opportunity to move to a location MUCH closer to home (not as close as you Lisa!). Our current camp is 105 miles one way. The new site is 46 miles one way. At our current camp we can not leave our boat in the water. The new place has dockage space, so there would be no more putting the boat in and out and especially driving our big truck each weekend to do the pulling of the trailor and boat! Both places are on Lake Ontario, but the new place is on a point with Lake Ontario on one side and a small enclosed "bay" on the other. We hear the bay is full of fish and since it is protected on all sides stays pretty calm even when the lake is rough. Let me tell you that lake can get rough! The drawbacks are many too. Leaving good friends, no cable (hubby cares about that), getting used to new owners, leaving behind terrific restaurants and beautiful Sackett's Harbor, only 5 minutes away. We have been here for 8 years, my dad has been there for 25 years. Lots of memories. But on the other hand being closer would be SO nice. Hubby could drive his motorcycle. The new owner doesn't care how many Pugs we have. We could get more friends to visit (they hate the 2+ hour drive where we are now). Did I mention the rent is cheaper too????? The new place would be less money!
