Okay - so it's been a while since I posted here.  It's been a busy, busy summer.  My wonderful, amazing daughter has come to live with us, so we've been just a *tad* busy - adapting to life with a resident teenager is occassionally challenging, shall we say.  But I still have all these photos that I want to share, and there's so much I want to see and capture.

Grotto Wall

Looking out onto Georgian Bay from "The Grotto".  I'd love to come back here in the middle of summer and do more hiking on the trail.  It was beautiful there, but we didn't get nearly enough time to hike.  After the preparations for the wedding, we didn't have too much energy, either.

Angel at the Water

Angie looks out onto Georgian Bay. 

We went for a hike on one of the easier trails on the Bruce Peninsula.  The trail through the woods was interesting - mostly cedar and other evergreen woods, lots of paved trail, etc. - and it ended at something they called the Grotto.  It was gorgeous, and it gave a spectacular view of the water and the islands. 

Fun at the Beach

Fun on the Beach.jpg

Who do you think is having more fun - the kid on the beach with his toys, or the folks in the sailboat on the water?  My money's on the kid.

Taken at Ashbridge's Bay on a hot, sunny day. 

Cherry Beach In Winter

Bright sunlight and clear skies brought a fair number of people out to Cherry Beach.  I wanted to get a look at what it's like in the winter, so we went for a photowalk down by the beach.  The ice was melting, and these folks were getting a good look at it from the beach, but we saw a few brave souls out on some of the ice.

At the Water

Another shot from the Leslie Street Spit.  The lake was gorgeous that day, and if it hadn't been so cold, it would have been peaceful to stand there contemplating it.  As it was, we kept moving to stay warm. What can I expect from Canada in the winter, eh?

It was cold, down on the Leslie Street Spit, but it was beautiful, too.  This particular cove is always busy during the warmer months, but it's quiet now. 

Contemplation

She's thirteen now, and there's so much ahead of her.  Heather pauses to contemplate the lake down on the Leslie Street Spit.  So much potential, so many adventures.

It was the last day of summer, so we walked down to Cherry Beach in the sunshine and warmth of Sunday.

Another shot from the last morning at the bed and breakfast.

We woke up early on the morning we were checking out of the bed and breakfast in Huntsville, and found the mist.  So we had to go down to the horse pond and get some shots.  I love seeing the mist rising off the water.

Throwing Rocks

Throwing Rocks.jpg

All I could think of, while she was throwing rocks into the lake, was "Those poor rocks - they just spent years getting up on the beach, out of the water, and she's throwing them right back in."  Taken at sunset on Ashbridges Bay.

On the Spit

Our recent trip to the Leslie Street Spit had the kids exploring the rocky shore.  The geese didn't seem to mind them.  The kids loved seeing all the eroded material on the shoreline.

Inukshuk and Sails

Inukshuk and Sails.jpg

More from the Leslie Street Spit - this time, someone seems to have made an attempt at an inukshuk out of cinder blocks.  That seems appropriate, since the spit is mostly made of building waste from the 50's when the TTC dug the Yonge Street subway line. 

Sunset at Ashbridges Bay I

Sunset at Ashbridges Bay I.jpg

We took the kids to Ashbridges Bay the other night, and we got some great shots of the beach as the sun went down.  I'm really looking forward to going back there when we have a little more time to shoot.

Photo Walk I

Photo Walk I.jpg

When we took our photowalk on the Leslie Street Spit the other day, I was constantly seeing other photographers on our walk.  This couple were obviously enjoying themselves, and I so wanted the lens on his camera.  Looks like a 200mm lens at least - drool!

Another shot from the photowalk on the Leslie Street Spit.  This cyclist seemed to be tinking, sitting on an improvised bench at the water's edge. 

Cottage Country I

The Muskokas are beautiful all year round, and they have a special magic at sunset.  One clear, still evening, we went sunset hunting.  We drove from the bed and breakfast we stayed at to Algonquin Park, scouting locations. Then, as the sun set, we drove back towards Huntsville, stopping at the locations and taking shots.
