Sweet, sweet summer in Grey/Bruce – it’s when the world starts to really feel alive again, our communities are bustling with visitors, farmers are working hard in the fields, and those of us lucky enough to call this place home are taking advantage of every minute we have living in paradise.

I truly feel we are blessed to live in a region rich with natural assets, from beautiful beaches and amazing waterfalls to access to local produce, well-kept trails and no shortage of wide open spaces to encourage our kids to explore.

Generally, our summer weather is perfectly suited for long bike rides and hikes, cheering on our favourite athletes at their baseball and soccer games, reading a book in the shade of your campsite at one of our incredible Provincial Parks, throwing a stick for your pup during a gorgeous sunset, and telling stories with friends in front of a roaring campfire.

Is it any wonder tourists drive hours upon hours just to experience a few days in our paradise?

This marks our 13th summer issue and it always amazes me the knowledgable and talented resources we have in our community. Thank you to Kathyrn Forsyth at Grey Bruce Public Health for writing about something we can’t live without, but don’t always think about – water! If you are thinking of exploring our region this summer, be sure to read the article about the Point Clark Lighthouse, a National Historic Site, in Huron-Kinloss, at the south-westerly tip of Bruce County.

Cindy Druyf-Hatchard, Keystone Child, Youth and Family Services, shares her expertise about regulating children’s emotions, while Todd Farrell, President of Miller Insurance, lends expertise about what to consider when your teen gets their driver’s license.

Finally, Brianne Ozimok from the Brockton and Area Family Health Team, writes about nutritional guidelines from birth to school age.

Thank you for reading our summer issue – I hope you soak up all this amazing season has to offer in this incredible region!
