Lake Simcoe - Private

 Stairway down to the Lake's edge

Some of the land on the at the edge of Lake Simcoe is quite a bit higher than the lake. This photo was taken on Tuesday the 14th. Yes, there's still ice on the lake.

Private, so I did not walk down

FYI: The owner's house is on the other side of the road.

I imagine that's a nice walk down to the water, shame it's privately owned!

Andy said...

I don't see any No Trespassing sign. I still would have done what you did and show respect.
Ice still on the lake?? Wow.

eileeninmd said...

Wow, I would think the ice melted by now.. This is crazy weather.. What a pretty spot by the lake.. Great shots! Have a happy day!

That looks like a lovely place, and it stand private also ...

Brrr, we are way ahead of you on Spring. "Private" signs always make wonder but I understand how the owners feel.

Jeanne said...

What a great stairway to the lake and how lucky these people are. It does still look pretty cold out there!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I could sit on those steps for hours, with a view like that!!!!

A good entry for Good Fences!

Oh boy I love the look of the water, its colours, the leftover ice...

I hope people do obey the sign like you did?

Beautiful fence and railing. Not to mention how great the view is too.
Great shot.
Have a nice day.

This disparity between the water's edge and the land occurs frequently along our Atlantic coast. And there are lots of steps with signs just like this. I think you could have safely ignored it. If someone caught you, you just say "What sign?"

see you there! said...

What a view! The lake looks so large, icy and cold.

Looks like a nice place to live--a person could make a lot of memories fishing on that lake in the summer.

Kathy said...

I'm sure they were tired of passersby tramping through their property. How wonderful to have your own private beach.

Sandra said...

our river is full of these private docks, some with signs, but most with a metal gate .. no river access at all for our city, and they have signs no fishing. us poor folks can't get to the river at all unless we go to one of 4 boat ramps with a boat.. one of my pet peeves since my hubby would love to fish in that river from the banks...

Beautiful view and well captured!
The ice made me shiver a little. :)

That scene beckons me to explore...too bad it is private...a shame not to share.

TexWisGirl said...

i bet they get lots of cold wind up there! nice stairway!

Jacquelineand.... said...

I sometimes wish we could share these places more amicably... such beauty should be free for all.

VP said...

That sign would not be a great obstacle here...

ladyfi said...

How lovely to have your own beach!

Andrea Priebe said...

Beautiful shots of this fence and the lake. The ice on the lake is beautiful, though I am sure you will be happy when it is gone. I am guessing that Spring is just getting a foot hold where you are. So much to look forward to :)

It is a big lake, after all. It's been a long while since I've been out there.

Jeevan said...

Pretty neat fence and wood stairway... should be wonderful having private space on lake and beaches shore

Sylvia K said...

Such terrific shots of a beautiful place!! I could enjoy spending a lot of time there -- as long as I had plenty of warm clothes on!! Thanks as always for sharing the beauty!! Hope you're getting ready for a wonderful weekend!! Enjoy!

Birdman said...

I like this lake shot with the wooden stairway. Ya, still some ice here too, in spots.

Rose said...

That is a beautiful view!

Lake Simcoe; one of the RG's favorite place to ice fish.

Karen S. said...

A truly lovely entry way to the water, for them! We have a few places with such signs too, but if you wander around far enough you can usually find a public opening and of course we use it!

Pamela Gordon said...

I like the heavy rope fencing. It must be a lovely spot in the summer.

Revrunner said...

Ice? Yikes!

José Mendonça said...

Those stairs are asking to be stepped down! :-) Beautiful setting.

Ida said...

Great shots of the fence/steps leading down to the beach. Ice still....brrr.

Margaret Adamson said...

it must be a beautiful area below.

barbara l. hale said...

Terrific shots! The ice is finally off the ponds around here. Yours will be gone soon, too.

Ginny said...

A person would have to be really really rich to own a whole lake!! Or the property around it.

RedPat said...

I'm amazed that there is still ice, EG!

Mascha said...

Beautiful quiet pictures.
All the nice things are private... sigh!

Susan said...

Wonderful picture! To bad it's private.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

What a gorgeous view..how much longer before the ice melts? Is it normal for people to own stairs down to the beach- I guess the road cuts through their property? I would be wanting to get on the beach!!

Geoff Wilkinson said...

So much ice ! Spring will arrive soon..

Ruth Hiebert said...

It may be private,but it still allows you to get some really good pictures.

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Ice on the lake...how neat. Great photos for good fences! Hugs!

Randy said...

Great view.

Annesphamily said...

A great shot and it sure looks icy cold there! Brrrrr.......we have snow and cold here today and tomorrow. I am so done with winter but it apparently is not done with us. I understand does private property signs. But it would be fun to know what's back there.! ENjoy your weekend.

Felicia said...

love that first view.

Stephanie said...

Hard to believe that there is still ice there. Nice images!

Ileana said...

Beautiful view!

Marie C said...

What a prime piece of property! Nice little fenced entryway down to the beach.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Imagine owning your own private piece of lakeside land.. cannot believe the snow is still hanging around EG!

Debbie said...

these images are wonderful but i detest private/no trespassing signs!!!!

orvokki said...

Lovely and beautiful images, I love a lot.
And yes, I can see the ice and snow :)

Indrani said...

I am surprised by the snow, great framing of fences here.

Pauline Woodcock said...

Beautiful scenes but a shame you couldn't explore. I really like the composition of the second image.

Halcyon said...

I don't like it that the lakefront can be "privately" owned. It should be open to all to enjoy.

edenhills said...

Lovely. My ex-brother-in-law's family has a cabin on a lake. They eventually built a long stairway down to the cabin.
