Hello summer, our old friend. There were times this past spring we didn’t think you’d arrive, but here you are again, bringing us your blue skies, warm nights, lush leaves on the trees and blooming flower beds. It’s great to have you back.

And it’s great to have you back too, loyal reader! I believe we have another great issue in store for you, with many interesting articles and advertisements you can enjoy wherever you are, be it basking in the morning sun on your back porch, on the dock at the cottage or swinging lazily in a hammock.

In this edition, we introduce you to Kincardine resident Murray Clarke, who fulfilled a life-long dream of travelling to Antarctica, with the added bonus of having his likewise-adventurous daughter with him. His experiences – and his photographs – are truly jaw dropping.

We take a tour of some of Tobermory’s most famous shipwrecks, which can be experienced by divers of various skill levels. If you’ve always had an interest in diving, perhaps this is the summer you take the plunge…

Our travel story takes a trip along the West Cliff Bicycle Path near Santa Cruz, California, where writer Alan MacLeod discovered the Seymour Marine Discovery Centre and Monterey Bay, which sound like places that should be on every wildlife lover’s bucket list.

Our water theme continues with a look at the Cabot Head Lighthouse in our ‘If These Walls Could Talk…’ feature. It never ceases to amaze me how the lighthouse keepers lived during the early settlement of our region.

So enjoy this issue and your summer! Don’t forget to frequent our amazing distributors and advertisers, to whom we are forever indebted for their continued support!
