Earlier in December this year the bay had begun to ice over almost completely but then the daytime temperature rose above freezing and the ice changed state back. Colder temperatures returned since this shot and the ba y is iced with a thin solid cover as of Dec. 29th.

Image = shore edge in front of my home on the eastern end of Georgian Bay, which is the east end of Lake Huron, one of the Great Lakes of North America.  I have been living up here 100 miles north of Toronto for twelve years (fulltime).  My family rented here in the sixties and then bought a lot and built this cottage in 1969-70.  It is a beautiful place and I am fortunate to live here.

until the shore growth got high enough to hide predators, families of Canada Geese would amble in to crop away at the plant life…..it is fun to watch the tiny golden goslings mature into as of this week nearly full-sized geese.. the neck stretching guard adult geese are careful in their watching and quickly sound the alarm when they dont like something in the area, which produces a mad rush and much splashing as the family skedaddles out into the safety of the bayy
