Swinging 1970s bar that was in our family apartment of my childhood over the store, moved downstairs and loaded into truck. Free Stuff Leaving Gravenhurst event advertised on Facebook and Kijiji drew neighbours from Muskoka to take remnants of the former retail store and residence, first established in 1961. Three-hour window welcoming visitors, and we returned to Toronto. (Sharpe Street West, Gravenhurst, Ontario) 29101027

Dull fall day to be sitting in the oversized Muskoka Chair, summer in cottage country has passed. Climbing the structure has been made easier with safety ridges for traction, but it still takes nerve to dangle legs over the front. The shape is different than an Adirondack Chair, the back is rounder and the arms are wider. (Sawdust City Brewing Co., Muskoka Road N., Gravenhurst, Ontario) 20190914
After-dinner couples stroll on main street, Friday of Labour Day long weekend. Dad says that the summer vacationers have already left, preparing children to start school on Tuesday. Brewpub a few blocks north busy serving flights, live music attracting hipsters. (Muskoka Road South, Gravenhurst, Ontario) 20190830
