Chopping wood at Washagami Landing cottage rental

Lumberjack for the Day

With acres of mostly wooded land we have a good supply of pine and birch for firewood. Usually we also purchase maple and poplar for the winter.

Chopping wood can be quite an exercise; you have to do it right to avoid straining the wrong muscles. To have a clean chop takes practice!

When the whole place is quiet with the falling thuds and your breathing as the only soundtrack, and your eyes / arms are focused into that one precise split… it can be very therapeutic.

One exciting thing about Canada is her defined seasons; and Canadian winter can completely transform a landscape. With the transformation new opportunities are unlocked. Like a skating rink on the wide expanse of frozen lake!
