Sailing on Lake Ontario

 Learning to tack

It's July one way to keep cool is to sail.

 Sailing just beyond the harbour

The sailboats  look so tiny in the distance.

 A closer look

 Some sails are colourful!

A few water lovers enjoy the harbour without sails.

This is the season that sailors enjoy a lot in my neck of the woods on a breezy day. The pretty vessels dot the seascape along with the paddle boarders who use their own power to sail the sea.

Great shots. I used to have a sailboat and enjoyed sailing a lot. I miss it but got to the point where we didn't sail enough to warrant keeping the boat.

The colourful sails are a joy to see against the blue sea and sky.

Your lakes look like the sea to me :-) I remember that's the impression I had when I first spotted Lac St Jean in Québec, couldn't see the other side, incredible! Lovely photos!

Lowell said...

I haven't sailed since I was a kid, but I remember it as being great fun! You mean it's hot up in them thar parts?

Love the photos and the little girl is so darn cute!

Re your comment: No problem; just routine. He did the surgery on my knee about 3 years ago when I fell on a golf course in Tennessee.

Hope all continues to go well with you and your husband, too!

Small sailboats look like butterflies on the water. The lake does look lovely.
