Greetings from Lake Wabatongushi! It’s hard to believe that we only have one month left here at the resort. Wow, where have the days gone? This summer has been absolutely enjoyable. Getting to meet so many people from different parts of the world, and sharing in their excitement of wildlife sightings, catches and releases, and just the contentment of being away from it all has brought joy to my days here at the resort.
I will never forget my first group; the Mancini party. Mr. Mike Mancini, and Mr. John Mackey; two guys from Michigan who came up to relax and catch fish. I won’t forget their kindness, and smiles. Although they didn’t have as much luck with the fish as they hoped they would have that didn’t dampen their spirits.
We had a family from Belgium come to stay with us here at the resort. That was exciting to meet a family from Europe and to share in their experience of the great Canadian wilderness.
Mr. Ron Johnson, what a guy! Ron came up to the resort twice this year to fish and relax. I feel that I learned a lot from Mr. Johnson when it came to catching walleye. His willingness to share his ideas, and fishing tactics were very helpful to me.
The Dewane party. I don’t think you could meet a nicer group of ladies. I enjoyed sharing my knowledge of wildlife with them, and also hearing about their catch and release stories during breakfast. Don’t forget ladies strawberry kiwi juice is the BEST JUICE EVER!
We had another returning guest this year. It was nice to see Doug Hoppa once again this summer. What an interesting guy Doug is. Not only is Doug an awesome fisherman he also has an awesome voice too. Thank you for the coffeehouse night’s, Doug. I don’t think I will ever get tired of hearing the Wabatong song 🙂
To Mike and Sherri Kelley; your kindness and encouragement brightened my days here at the resort. It was a pleasure to meet you both and spend time with you each morning during breakfast.
We have had so many great people come and go this summer. Greetings are always exciting, and goodbyes always sad but the memories last a lifetime.
