Water, Water Everywhere – Different Perspectives of the Shores of Lake Ontario

….thanks to Jez for hosting Water, Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2021/05/31/reflections-7-water-water-everywhere-80/

I’ve posted many photos of Lake Ontario at the bottom of my street. Today I walked a little further east and took a couple of shots towards downtown Toronto. Then I went a little further east and took a shot of the area I had just come from.

I loved how turquoise the water was today (completely untouched…this is the colour).

Another trip to a conservation area with a waterfall.

Last week we took a drive to Halton Hills. We had to make a reservation and we were quite surprised at how many cars were in the parking lot for a Wednesday afternoon. The hike started with a steep climb up a rugged path but this was the most difficult part of the hike. After that the paths were wide and relatively smooth.

It didn’t take too long before we heard the sound of rushing water.

As the sound got louder the we noticed that the water moved quickly and before too long we found ourselves at the top of Hilton Falls. This waterfall is 10 metres high and at the base are the ruins of a 19th century sawmill.

The conservation area also has great picnic sites right by the falls and when COVID is over the fire pit will probably be open to the public again.

After our lunch we headed back on the path that we came on but there was a fork in the road and we headed toward the reservoir.

All in all we had a wonderful day. On the way home we took a side road instead of the highway and were impressed with the beautiful countryside so close to the city.

On my walks I’m most happiest when I’m near water. Here are some of the lakes, creeks and ponds that I’ve passed in the last couple of weeks. Grenadier Pond, Lake Ontario, Twenty Mile Creek and Black Creek.

I’m always near water. At home I have Lake Ontario 100m from my house and at the cottage I live by Georgian Bay. This is the view from the park at the bottom of my street in Toronto. I never get tired of seeing this skyline.
