Another canoodle ride!

Northern Map turtle
Ontario has 10 species, most are at-risk.
Cottage Life says there are 8,
but they are wrong. Can't depend on for-profits!
I was up early for a canoe ride, June 24th. Hubby went into the city for breakfast with his buddies.
Otty Lake is only 60' max at its deepest. So different from Muskoka lakes.

I used my Garmin GPS, however, it turned itself off midway through my canoe ride. It looks like I paddled in a perfectly straight line, and on land.

I would like to know how I ascended 15m, though!

I was on the upper right section of the lake. My top speed was 6km, although I hit 5km a couple of times.

For sale! I tracked it down.
343 Mile Pt. Rd. only $459,000
Only 2 bedrooms

 I cannot tell when the lake will be too rough to paddle before I get there, so I go early enough that the winds haven't started. It was so quiet. A couple were fishing on their barge. There was a man working on one cottage, redoing the outside. Otherwise, it was just me on the lake.

I like the variety of cottages, some bunkies, some as old a 100 years, others brand new 4-season homes. And yes, they call them ALL cottages, because this is a real estate definition in that we are in cottage country!

It looks you did a perfect figure 8.

I sure got a "peaceful easy feeling" looking at all your images.

Such a pretty route to paddle!

Peaceful water, so clear, barely a ripple, I wonder if those homes down low every worry about getting flooded? Super to get out and have some " Myself time".

The pleasure of a canoe is the quietness. You can see down in the clear water and don't alarm things.

Beautiful shots! I wonder if the GPS has issues.
