The Sunsets over Lake Huron have been declared among the Top Ten best in the world by National Geographic Magazine
The crowds for the last long weekend of the Summer have begun to swarm the Beach communities along Lake Huron .....and the parties begin.
By next Tuesday most local residents will be happy to have peace and tranquility return to the area. Many will miss the masses especially those retailers and restaurateurs who make most of their yearly sales in the short 10 to 12 week period of Summer.
South of Grand Bend the Grand Opening of Southbend Estates happened Aug 24. Southbend Estates is a huge development which when completed will have just over 400 fully serviced single family lots, a condominium development and a 200,000 sq ft commercial retail and hotel development. The feature of this new community is a 7200 yard golf course designed by Kevin Homes and being built by Gateman-Milloy who have built over 100 golf courses in Canada. Huron Links Golf Course will also have a driving and practise range along with a first class clubhouse. Reservations are being taken now and already more than 10% of the first phase have been selected. If you would like to get in on this exciting new development e-mail
