Federal Dock at Albert Street
Victoria Harbour in Tay Township in Ontario, Canada, on Georgian Bay, east end of Lake Huron, one of the Great Lakes. About 100 miles due. North of Toronto.
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.
Tay Township put in place this small beach park in downtown Victoria Harbour, next to what was once the covered town dock but which has more recently been assumed by the Federal Govt.
Nice sandy beach, fairly shallow for the kids, lots of sod put in, a gazebo and a few tall shade trees, although a good umbrella might be a wise thing to bring along, remember your sun safety.

someone asked to include this image of mine in a coffee table book about outdoor hockey…..with a small photo credit……I suggested a small fee would be better.

My photos of the old company store (lumber company store) in Victoria Harbour, Ontario – think of 16 tons and Tennessee Ernie Ford, although the owner of this lumber company had a reputation for philanthropy and kindness. built around 1910.
