Dear Cottage Life

I spent time as an exchange student on Lake Temagami, Ont., way back in 1987. A week in the summer and a week in the winter. I fell in love with fresh air, lakes, and canoeing. I have the best memories. —Nicki Edwards, via Instagram

COME TOGETHER

As a loyal Cottage Life reader for more than a decade, I’ve enjoyed your colourful stories about people and their beloved cottages. As a Maritimer, I was delighted to read about the family who rents on P.E.I. every summer (“2 Weeks at Sea,” Spring ’18), a totally different experience than cottaging on lakes or rivers. Just one example of an interesting, wellwritten story about the joys of cottaging.

The recent flooding of the Saint John River here in New Brunswick badly damaged several cottage communities. There are stories of people helping neighbours whose properties were damaged by the floods that took everyone by surprise. I’ve heard of several cases where the families can’t afford to fix or rebuild their cottages, some of which are many generations old.

About Cottage Life

Summer is the time to kick back and relax in the pages of the Summer 2018 issue of Cottage Life. You’ll read about a unique book club of remote islanders that comes together each year to bond over the love of a good story. Then, take a page out of their book and dive into our summer reading guide with all-star book suggestions and summer must-reads. Plus, do you have the classic cottage bookshelf? Enter to win a prize by taking our cottage bookshelf quiz and sharing your Cottage Shelfie pics. Then, meet cottagers who aren’t satisfied with just a quick dip, and find out how to take on a swim challenge at the lake. Feed unexpected guests with our 7 easy dockside treats: happy hour recipes and solutions to make your next dock party a no-sweat affair. That said, if you’re the type to relax by keeping busy, we have a tool box full of puttering projects to consider: fix a broken cooler hinge, build a marshmallow catapult with the kids, quit stubbing your toes with this clever new dock hardware, get on top of exterior maintenance, and be inspired by a 20-something who DIY’d a sweet little cabin of his own on his parents’ back 40. Plus, read our essential guide to keeping your cottage road in shape—how to finally tackle potholes, washboarding, and beaver dams. Grab our Summer 2018 issue, fire up the old autoreply, and lie back in the hammock. Summer’s finally here!
