Manitoulin Island, northern Lake Huron

(viewed 1177 times)
Bookmark and Share
Manitoulin is basically a big flat rock, scraped clean by glaciers. No dirt to put your fence posts in so you secure them with boxes of boulders. Rare plants that can't/won't grow anywhere else. Mostly flat grassy fields filled with beef cattle. And a serious fishery--lots of great fresh fish. No rain since early June. Hot but there's lots of places to swim.

Sounds perfect, especially contrasted to hardly anything but rain since end of March! Lovely tasters :)

Lovely set. #4 is gorgeous. Not sure what the pile of stones in #2 is there for... but I like the picture.

thanks all. I am home briefly before I head out on my Next Adventure to the east coast.

'fish, satellite phones are common up north but are really expensive, so they are mostly for emergencies. Don't think they are part of the net. While on Manitoulin, I went to town once a week, to the lovely internet cafe, had lunch and used the net...interesting to live mostly offline. good for the soul.
