Spring Melt/Our World

Cool, clear water

Last weekend on the south side of Georgian Bay, much of the snow and ice had melted and the water was clear and gorgeous.

Don't you just LOVE the colours of the water?

The water in Georgian Bay is always so clear and you captured that clarity in your photos just perfectly.

I do love the aqua blue hues in the sparkling water. It is liquid gold when this fresh and clean.

Kate said...

Now that's a much better sight than the cold, rainy weather right outside my window. Rock, boulders, pebbles. . . I love 'em all!

see you there! said...

Amazingly blue water.

yes, i love the colors of the water, and the rocks in the water and the ripples and sunshine... water views like this are just so very peaceful to me... i would love to stick my toes in there but am sure they would freeze.

Spent a week sailing in Georgian Bay in wonderfully clear water. Had a great time. Thank you for this post as it brought back fine memories.

One of my favorite songs from years gone be - done, I believe, by The Sons of the Pioneers.

You cool, clear water made me do this even though your land is not a "barren waste" by any stretch of the imagination! :)


"All day I face the barren waste without the taste of water,
Cool water.
Old Dan and I with throats burned dry and souls that cry for water,
Cool water.

The night are cool and I'm a fool each stars a pool of water,
Cool water.
But with the dawn I'll wake and yawn and carry on to water,
Cool water.

(Chorus)
Keep a movin' Dan, don't you listen to him Dan, he's a devil not a man
and he spreads the burnin' sand with water.
Dan can't you see that big green tree where the waters runnin' free
and it's waiting there for me and you.
Water, cool water.

The shadows sway and seem to say tonight we pray for water,
Cool water.
And way up there He'll hear our prayer and show us where there's water,
Cool Water.

Dan's feet are sore he's yearning for just one thing more than water,
Cool water.
Like me, I guess, he'd like to rest where there's no quest for water,
Cool water."
