Sentimental Saturday – Every July Meant A Week At Grandview Lodge Resort

I’m posting photos from my collection of family photographs on Saturdays with a brief explanation of what I know about each picture.

The annual family vacation always meant a week at the Grandview Lodge Resort, located on Sparrow Lake in the Muskoka District of Ontario. It meant a week of relaxation and fun. The lodge staff took care of the cooking and cleaning, we took care of the playing and lounging.

It became an annual tradition for my late wife and I and was especially fun for our children, providing many happy memories.

Each year, I would rent a small fourteen-foot aluminum boat with motor that was used for fishing and family tours of the lake.

In the photo below, my son John was driving the boat, one of his favourite activities while his sister Lisa tries to enjoy the ride. The photo was likely taken around 1992 by my late wife Karen who was sitting at the front of the boat with our youngest daughter Jenna tucked in beside her.
