May did not bring the Kawarthas enough rain — but she sure did give us some solid glimpses of the coming Kawartha summer.
Promises of picnic tables (and patios) and paddling on pristine waterways. Hot days, warm starry nights, and better days ahead.
Here’s hoping for a safe healthy summer! Thanks again to all of our local photographers — keep tagging us at #kawarthanow so we can see your photos.
We share photos from across our readership area, which is the five-county area surrounding Peterborough which includes Peterborough, Northumberland, City of Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton, and Hastings (we sneak in the occasional Algonquin Park picture as well, particularly if it’s by a Kawarthas photographer).
