common question for the Spring is "What is there to do?
My answer is PLAY ! !
Our U.K. Connection - We have had several couples recently stay with us that are from the United Kingdom. One couple from Devon said that Air Transat has direct flights from Exeter U. K. to Toronto, Canada each week. It is much closer for them to go to Exeter than Heathrow airport and much less expensive with no expensive overnight stay in an airport hotel. They took in the sights of Niagara Falls, Toronto and then came to the country to stay with us at Beauview. They went canoeing, fishing, hiking in Algonquin Park, saw a moose and deer and black squirrels!
How about Bird Watching?
