    Description

    Hello My name is Leneath. My partner Martin and I live with my family in Loring Ontario we're on an isthmus of land that is connected to two peninsulas so there is water on both sides. everyone is super busy during the summer but during the winter we have more time to work on our houses and our volunteer walleye hatchery and lake volunteer fire department. we also go sledding and ice fishing. you would be welcome to use one of the shacks to fish if you have a licence and we have lots of extra rods. When you arrive if you come this winter Ill tell you what will most likely happen. The first greeting you will get will be from Bucket the dog she is very sweet and will want to be pet but she howls because she is a hound. You will get to meet my Papa he is in his seventies and has a lot of stories to tell He is a bit messy so if you can help me tidy his house while your around that would be great we also get together to cut his wood but that is only once the lake is frozen so we can move it with the sleds. My cousin Lyle will probably be in the fur room He is a trapper and loves to show people the forest and his trap line. Lyle also fixes up the sleds in the shop since he is handy. Sky is Lyle's girlfriend and she has traveled all over so she will now how you feel coming to a new place. Martin also speaks Canadian french so if that's your native language you can always go to him for translation. My dad (Scotty) will show up for coffee in his old Cadillac and do some paperwork and find some new project to do or finish. Scotty is very funny and will make you laugh he will also want you to come to our hunt camp down the road to play music and some nights we have supper there. There are lots of cottages at camp so depending when you come you may have a room to yourself or maybe a whole cottage just before you leave if you can tidy it up and put on fresh sheets :) there is always someone around to show you where everything is and help if you don't know how to do something also if you come in April when the ice has just come off the lake you can help with the walleye hatchery You'll get to catch big fish with your hands on the lake and up the river and bring them back so we can take care of their eggs till they hatch. there is lots to do before we catch the fish though Lyle has all the boats to get ready and the hip waders and nets we do a good clean in the hatchery building too.

    tidying up the shed where Papa keeps all his tools and his sled
    cutting wood for the hunt camp and papa also if you stay in a cabin we will cut some wood for that too
    Sky wants to make an art room so she can paint and draw without anyone distracting her
    My Papa always needs help on the computer haha but he is determined and has learnt a lot

    in the spring we will have the hatchery to get ready for and then we check all the fire pumps and boxes around the lake
    sky wants to make a bigger garden she grew one last year and got lots of squash
    i want to make a compost area that is animal safe and Scotty wants to build a greenhouse and a sauna for us all to enjoy

    We have a tourist camp that my family and I manage you wont be asked to do anything involving the business we only need help with our own homes and our walleye hatchery volunteer program and fire volunteer program

    we are an hr away from the city so you will see the wilderness of Canada there are many maple sugar bushes around and small lakes to explore our lake had islands to camp on and a large beach you can get to by boat. In the winter you could learn about trapping, cutting wood, ice fishing, and sledding
