Making a Splash/ Watery Wednesday

 Lighthouse at end of pier, Coboug, Ontario

Yesterday afternoon the water was rough on Lake Ontario.

 Wave splashing onto pier

The pier was icy but the coast guard was allowing cars to drive out to see the action.

BIG splash

Beside me, but out of the photo, was an Ontario Provincial Police van making sure no one moved too close to the end of the pier. For sure  I didn't want to get in any closer. I was already COLD and didn't need to be splashed on. Brrrr.

I am linking to Watery Wednesday where you can find many more watery photos.
