Lighthouse Island: Gargantua Harbour, Lake Superior Provincial Park, 2010
It’s that time of year again! Yearly I migrate to the coast. Unlike the geese, I head North in the autumn, for pleasant days, and crisp cool nights. Sometimes it even snows! The water is always more or less cold, but if you grit your teeth and jump in, it’s usual great for swimming. Cold, clear, clean, we drink it too. Not that we have a choice. This harbour is about 40 kilometres away from the nearest tap.
This is my husband being very chivalrous, fetching water first thing in the morning when the sun hasn’t had a chance to warm up the shoreline. When the waves kick up the sand, it takes a good long jaunt out to get the good stuff—not that sand is a big deal, but I’d rather not have grit in my coffee.
I’ll be off-line for a bit, enjoying sea, surf and sand (hopefully), so please don’t get worried if I don’t comment or visit your blogs for a bit (and if you haven’t already guessed, I’m using the post-date feature).
