S/Alphabe-Thursday

 Lake Simcoe

S is for SEPTEMBER SUNDAY STROLL on Lake SIMCOE SHORE

Lake Simcoe is a large lake just north of East Gwillimbury. It's approximately 30 kilometres (19 miles) long and 25 kilometres (16 miles) wide, and it is one of my favourite places to explore and take photos.

Further down the shore

As you can see, it now looks very much like sutumn here.

The single yellow canoe in the first photo makes a charming focal point. The water looks inviting, especially to explore it from a canoe.
