Our family is from Guelph and had 7 children. We were brought up here in Inverhuron in the 60s, and fell in love with the area. After I was married, my husband and I built a cottage between Southampton and Port Elgin in 1978, and planned to retire there. We retired to the cottage in 2003 and renovated it. I am involved with different seniors groups and have been on the executive for 8 years. I learned to drive a boat and now I am a Captain to Chantry Island.
