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.
….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.
The theme for August 10th was ‘visitor’. While at the beach up at the cottage we were graced with the presence of this gull. He actually came quite close to where we were lounging. They’re a pretty fearless bird. I’m sure he was hoping we had some food to share with him.

Throughout the neighbourhood people are putting out painted stones with bright colours and special messages. Up the street the local yarn store has had customers knit or crochet flowers and has ‘planted’ them on the lamp post outside the store. On the rocky beach over at the park people are creating art with the bricks and stones from the beach.
