Easter Weekend

Easter was a glorious weekend with amazing temperatures. It actually reached 25 c on Sunday, which is unheard of at this time of the year! Talk about an early taste of summer.

I was on-call all weekend, which limited our ability to venture far from base, but we did decide to take advantage of the sunshine and go out exploring. Yesterday found us in Port Perry, which is a town that I have never visited before. It is situated on Lake Scugog and is a delightful place to visit with lots of boutique-type shops to explore and a pretty lakefront.

Sunday afternoon was spent closer to home because I had been up at a birth half of the night (a baby boy, born shortly before midnight). I took these photos of Sturgeon Lake, which is a short drive from town.

No wonder the area is known as Kawartha and the Lakes...there are just so many of them.
