Water, Water Everywhere – Georgian Bay

….thanks to Jez for hosting Water, Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2022/08/22/river-clyde-water-water-everywhere-140/

I’ve just returned from a five day stay at the cottage on Georgian Bay. As some of you may know my cottage is on an island and to get there you have to take a ferry. So I am literally surrounded by water when we go there. The cottage is on the north shore so it looks like we’re on the sea. This past week the lake was calm and great for swimming and paddle boarding.

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Quiet Places

thanks to Amanda for hosting this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge https://viewfromtheback.com/2020/09/25/friday-photo-challenge-63/

Whether it’s close to home or up at the cottage, my quiet places almost always include water. Pictures #1, 5 and 6 were taken right here in Toronto and the others from Georgian Bay.

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.

A Week of the Blues

….thanks to Becky B for hosting the month long challenge, July Blues

I’ve been off and on to the cottage this month and it makes it difficult to post daily because I have no electricity or internet access. So I’ve saved up a batch of blue photos to share with you. The challenge is now over but Becky has compiled a gallery of blue photos that she’s worked hard to put together. Go check it out.
