Summer is a great time to visit cottage country.
I recently spent some time in the lovely resort town of Gimli on the southwestern shores of Lake Winnipeg.
Gimli is home to the largest Icelandic community outside of Iceland, and it celebrates this heritage every year with The Icelandic Festival. This year the festival commemorated its 125th year.
Thousands of tourists flock to Gimli all year round, attracted by its many miles of lakeshore.
