An Evening Walk on the Beach

after arriving at the cottage we had a quick snack and then decided to explore the beach

Now that the days are getting shorter my daughter and I knew that we didn’t have a lot of time to walk on the beach before darkness set in. After sitting in the car for over three hours we needed to stretch our legs. We fuelled up on some tea and homemade apple cake and then headed down to the beach. We were pleasantly surprised to find the the water level had gone down somewhat since our last visit so walking on the beach was considerably easier than it was two weeks ago.

Water, Water, Everywhere – #46

thanks to Jez for hosting Water,Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2020/09/21/full-speed-ahead-water-water-everywhere-46/

As many of you know I am always close to water. I live next to Lake Ontario and my cottage is on Georgian Bay. This past weekend I closed the cottage for the summer. I took one final walk on the beach Sunday morning and was greeted by the beautiful mist that was coming off the lake. Clearly the water was warmer than the air.

Lens Artists Photo Challenge – Negative Space

thanks to Amy for hosting this week’s Lens Artists Photo Challenge https://shareandconnect.wordpress.com/

Negative space is the area around the main subject. It is usually empty, subdued, peaceful, calm, and isolated.

It’s Beginning to Change

….not just the temperature and the amount of daylight hours

Last week I spent four days at the cottage. It was only my third visit of the season and next week I’ll do one more visit and close up for the winter. It’s been a strange cottage season for the lessees on Christian Island but I’ve enjoyed it non the less.

Even walking through the woods was prohibited but we were allowed to venture to the beach and up and down our lanes. I’m beginning to notice the signs that autumn and winter are on their way. When the winds start up the acorns land hard on our metal roof and make a loud bang. There’s not a lot of change in colour yet but there are signs everywhere that it won’t be long now.

This Little Guy Looks Lost

….when the waves are high you know that the conditions aren’t ideal for frogs

Even though Georgian Bay is a fresh water body of water it’s not home to many creatures that you would find on smaller lakes. The beach is sandy and there are no weedy areas for frogs to spawn or find food. So how did he get here?

Here’s what the water looked like the day we discovered this little guy.
