PORT PERRY - LAKE SCUGOG





Lake Scugog is busy, even in the winter.

This pretty little town has lots to do anytime of the year. It is especially nice at Christmas time, with all the decorations, it really puts you in the Holiday spirit. From ice skating, snow-mobiling and motorcycle races on the lake on Sundays in January and February you can find plenty of action. But my favorite passtime is always The Great Blue Heron Casino on Island Road on Scugog Island.



One of Port Perrys famous residents was Daniel David Palmer, the founding father of Chiropractic.

Everything Port Perry has to offer.

I never thought my van was an amphibious vehicle. Well that only happens in the winter when the Lake turns to ice. It is an odd feeling driving your vehicle out onto a lake which you usually are cruising across with your boat. To me it felt funny, but to many Canadian's it is a favorite winter passtime. From motorcycle races, ice skating and snow mobiles, Lake Scugog comes alive in the winter.



Our friend Mike, pictured below, is a regular to the Sunday races on the lake.

Motorcycle races on the Lake every Sunday in January and February. As of 2006 and a few accidents where the motorcycles slid into the crowds of spectators, barriers have been set up to keep the crowds safe.
