... After enduring the bitterly freezing winds, heaps of snow, and endless months of winter in Winnipeg, at last comes the reward of the heat (and infamous mosquitos) of summer, lush and humid without a breeze to be found. Forget the white-sand shores of Grand Beach*, my favorite getaway was an invitation to the Howorth's cabin at Grand Marais, with it's promise of fabulous company, countless gin and tonics, luxurious lounging and leisurely dips in the crystal-clear water of Gemma's pool.
