Singing Sands Beach in Dorcas Bay on Lake Huron
In September, I visited Canada.
Based in the city of Toronto where my son lives,
we went on many outings.
Our first outing was to drive up north from Toronto to the
Bruce National Park, near Tobermory.
We visited another beach called Little Cove
where there were lots of pebbles.
I found a rather good charcoal drawing of an anchor on one big slab of stone.
The other side of Little Cove
This was my favourite beach, calm and peaceful and sandy.
There were small cottages above the beach.
The water looks almost unreal and it was so calm with tiny wavelets breaking on the shore.
Soft sandy beach and grasses
Tobermory has a small harbour and a grocery store
where we bought our groceries for our rented cottage in the woods.
We took a boat out on Georgian Bay to go round Flowerpot Island, so-named because of
curious rock formations.
The water was quite choppy!
On our last day, we visited Cabot Head Lighthouse and museum
on Georgian Bay.
It was really interesting to visit and see the life of lighthouse keepers a century ago.
There was a big blackboard up in the entrance
for the sightings of the day.
Here is what I read:
"A female black bear and two playful cubs were seen playing in the garden
at 7 am this morning!"
