Here are some pictures of Grand Bend's Harbour. The picture above is current and is looking inland from the Lake. Below is looking out to the Lake in the 1960's. The round signs in the pictures ie Texaco below and the one to the right and top in the top picture are the same, except the newer sign advertises Oakwood Inn.

Summer starts today ( officially ) even though its been quite busy already. Last weekend saw the return of Burgerfest on the Beach in Grand Bend with big crowds enjoying the entertainment.
Last week was another successful Scatcherd Invitational.
On July 6th and 7th there will be a Corvette Weekend in Bayfield. The RE/MAX Ballon will be there on Saturday the 7th. There are still some of you looking for a cottage to rent this year and this link will lead you to one with weeks still available .
If you're looking to rent or buy or sell please call me and I can help. There are lots of available cottages, homes, Lakefronts and businesses in all price ranges along the coast. Interest rates are still good so don't delay.
Last but not least the Riverbend Bar and Grill in Grand Bend celebrates 10 years in business all day next Wednesday June 27th. Congrats to Doreen and Tracy Ulch. To contact larry call 519 238 5700 or e-mail

Summertime and the livin' is easy

Summer is fast approaching and activity around here is getting exciting. July and August are definately family months. If you're still looking for a Summer rental, here's a new entry that still has weeks available in July and August. Local guy Greg Gallello is a finalist in Canadian idol. He was at the Colonial last Friday so watch for him to play locally again. This weekend June 16 and 17 is the return of Burgerfest featuring entertainment on the Beach both days. Every Wednesday from 8 AM to 1 PM it's the Grand Bend Farmers market at the Gill St parking lot ( beside the school and library ). Local Zurich resident Helen MacLean was the grand prize winner in the Dream Lottery , congratulations even though it was supposed to have been me. Huron Country Playhouse is active again with a full schedule for the summer. One of Canada's few remaining Drive In theatres is now open for the summer as well. All in all a busy summer ahead and it's maybe it's time you purchased your piece of this action. Call me Larry Broadley and I can help you with your search for a new home, vacation or retirement home along the coast of Lake Huron. 519 238 5700 ask for Larry or e-mail
