Havelock Memories

We really enjoyed our time in Havelock, and it passed by faster than we would have liked. Both John and I commented on how we weren't quite ready to leave. The setting is gorgeous, the home cozy, and the pups a joy.


We really didn't venture very far, other than Havelock and Marmora for groceries. Marmora is a small town situated on the Crowe River.



This weekend (Jan. 31-Feb.2) is Marmora's SnoFest that features dog sled races, and all sorts of winter fun. The building below caught my eye because it blended so well with the sky.


While this home has one of the most intricate roof features I've ever seen.


The views of the Crowe River changed with each passing minute and were always a treat. This early morning shot captures its beauty.


Thank you to Heather and Phil for having us to take care of your home while you ventured south, and a special thank you to Holly and Maya for making our stay so incredibly comfy...and snuggly!

  1. I'm sure the girls will miss you both. "On the Road Again" should be your theme song!

    1. My apologies for the late reply, Pat, but we have been "on the road". We also encountered a few road bumps along the way these past two weeks, but things seem to be a little smoother now. (Fingers crossed!)

      As for the girls...one of the best things about housesitting is the pets. Each is unique with a distinct personality, and that makes it difficult for us to say goodbye to our four-legged, furry friends. They all have a special place in our hearts!

  2. Another job well done!

    Kevin and I dry camped/boondocked at Marmora in the motorhome for one night a few years ago. It really is a very pretty spot.

    1. The house as a whole WAS comfy, Rosella, and it felt like home from the moment we stepped inside. We're having a blast housesitting...it just feels so right!
