I do have a fave. Long Lake, where we cottaged for 50 years! Knowing it intimately, I canoed every inch, and even the surrounding beaver ponds which fed this lake.
I loved spring, when the ice began to thaw, and eventually sank in the warmth. Lakes have a constant temperature of 4 C., down below in winter. This lake is 200' deep.
I loved the fog dancing on the water.

Juxtaposition of late winter, early spring!

|Not true, as we enjoyed all 4 years |
that we lived there full-time.
We did grow tired of the disrespectful sledders, jetskis doing figure 8's, fireworks every night for two weeks on a work night, and the poor treatment of the loons who tried to share our lake. Snowmobiles on thin ice, leaving behind pollution. Melting ice is an accident waiting to happen!
|Eddie and Eva, who visited every year!|
|The heron visited often.|
|Here is why we moved closer to Ottawa!|

|Farewell, ducks! Caitlin and Josephine.|
|They trusted us and knew we loved them.|
I hope the new owner respects wildlife as we did.
