A Dinner Menu: Steak Dry Rub, Avocado Salsa, and Chopped Broccoli Salad
Steak Dry Rub
1/4 cup smoked paprika
3 tablespoons cumin
1/4 cup chili powder
2 tablespoons Mexican oregano
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Sea salt to taste
Olive oil brushed onto outside of steak
Mix all dry rub ingredients together in a large bowl. Place each steak directly into the dry rub mixture and make sure each side is well coated, rubbing the dry rub into the stead. Let the steaks sit for at least 30 minutes. Coat each side with a bit of olive oil before the steaks hit the grill. We used top sirloin but this dry rub is great on rib eyes and flank steak too!!
4 avocados, diced
3 roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 red onions, minced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together and serve on top of your steaks!
Chopped Broccoli Salad
3 cups broccoli, finely chopped
1 ½ cups of carrots, diced
1 apple, diced
9 strips of bacon, cooked and diced
3 green onions, diced
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1 tabelspoon fresh dill
Black pepper to taste

As the result of some scheduling issues, career commitments and just bad timing, our sojourn to Holland became a guys only trip. Here is what we would tell our wives that they missed by not joining us on our Le Boat trip in Holland.
Roster for the trip:
* Captain John Armstrong on the wheel * First Mate Robin Ball, navigator, tactician and sous chef * Deck Crew Greg Nicoll, lines and bollards, plus some cooking and storytelling...
The express cruiser style in this boat is refined in a number of interesting and unique ways. The distinctive bow styling serves an important purpose as does the attractive transom treatment while the rest of the yacht in between is an outstanding expression of the contemporary express cruiser style.
Our guide through the boat was Derek Mader, President of Executive Yacht in Toronto and our Azimut 55 S was, at that time, the only 2016 model available in Canada. Derek had ordered the boat in because he believed it had some unique features and indeed, it's unexpected to find a 55 foot express cruiser that includes both a private crew cabin and an enclosed dinghy garage.
As summer becomes a distant memory, see if you can close your eyes and recall those glorious days when you spent more than one lazy day hanging around the general store at the cottage. Not only was it a great place to purchase some penny candy, but also the place where you could eavesdrop on conversations that your parents said you should know nothing about. It’s where countless members of small communities seemed to blend seamlessly when they sailed, laughed, danced, swam, had ice creams, paddled, and shared cherished memories in a casual, summer atmosphere. C and Stony Lake Yacht Club comprise this community which has existed for some eight generations on Juniper Island in the ‘Jewel of the Kawarthas’. Many say that if Stony Lake is a community then Juniper is its hub. In the late 40s, Swatty Wotherspoon came to the lake and has been returning ever since. For him, life-lasting friendships were made where he vividly remembers square dances at the Pavillion, which became a very important place for his family growing up. He still treasures the spoons he won in the races sailing with everyone out of the yacht club.
