So your week in Ontario's Sunset Country has come to an end. It likely seems to you that you just arrived but sadly, it's already time to pack up and go home - a week isn't that long when you think about it. While all good things come to an end, you still have the memories of your trip here in your mind and as you make the long drive home and spend the winter away from us, here are a few things you may already be missing.
1. Sunsets Over the Water: While you can see a sunset anywhere, the ones over our freshwater lakes are something that most people never forget. Hopefully, you brought a good camera to take a few pictures of those you sat through. The sunrises are as good as the sunsets so get up early and bring home memories of the dawn of a beautiful day in Ontario.
2. The Northern Lights: Now we realize that not everyone gets to see the aurora when they visit, but many of you do. If you've never witnessed it before, and it's a relatively strong appearance, the experience will be something you won't ever forget.
3. The Call of the Loon: Sunset Country doesn't have a monopoly on loons but it's likely we have one of the highest summer populations of this water bird to be found anywhere in North America. Loons use our 70,000 lakes to build a nest and rear their young and their call, usually at dusk or in the middle of the night, is the defining sound of the Canadian Boreal forest. If during the long, cold winter that follows, you don't miss the sound of those calls, well, we don't know what to say.
