Only 1.5 hours from Toronto is a beautiful 250 acre pristine lake with no cottages and no boats, surrounded by a beautiful forest. Serene, peaceful, quiet are just a few words to say about this lake, although I gather I was quite chatty as my husband and I walked 1/2 way around the lake. Jim and I quite regularly walk the golf course, hit the ball walk, hit the ball walk, today he had to change his flow to take a picture walk, take a picture walk. And stop and help Lynne over trees, over little creeks, along the side of rock faces.
Surrounding the lake are marshes full of wildlife, which I think my chatting might have scared off. I was also practicing my moose calls, no luck. Will have to try and perfect it. I am determined to see a moose, somewhere, anywhere :).
That little knob on the tree above looks like a beaver head :)
An amazing balancing act, looks like it would make a great teepee.
I took a picture of a similar rock on Hardy Lake in October of 2010 on a walk with my girlfriends. The colourful maple in full dress behind it and the reflections in the water made for a breathtaking picture moment.
