Pinery Provincial Park, Lake Huron

Just before the cold weather I visited the Pinery Provincial Park on Lake Huron.
I fell in love with this park ....just look at my pictures...
Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion 
to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

Beautiful warm springlike day at Lake Huron

There are good news and bad news ...I received good news...
I left Waterloo on a beautiful warm springlike day
heading towards Bayfield/Goderich area located on Lake Huron.
When I arrived the wind has picked up but I walked along the shoreline of Lake Huron.
Besides a few fisherman on the pier nobody else seemed to be around and I enjoyed the scenery.
The sky darkened very quickly and the sun disappeared on the horizon.
Time to go back soon!

The world has enough beautiful mountains and meadows,
 spectacular skies and serene lakes. 
It has enough lush forests, flowered fields and sandy beaches. 
It has plenty of stars and the promise of a new sunrise and sunset every day. 
What the world needs more of is people to appreciate and enjoy it.

pictures from beautiful Manitoulin Island

Manitoulin means spirit island in the Ojibwe language.
The island was a sacred place for the native Anishinaabe people
who were Ojibwe, Odawa and Potawatomi.
Manitoulin Island is the world's largest freshwater lake island.
With an area of 2,766 km² (1,068 square miles), it is the 174th largest island in the world, and Canada's 31st largest island. Part of Ontario, Canada, the island separates the larger part of Lake Huron to its south and west from Georgian Bay to its east and the North Channel to the north. Manitoulin Island itself has 108 freshwater lakes, some of which have their own islands; in turn a few of these "islands within islands" have their own ponds.
Die Insel Manitoulin liegt im Huronsee und gehört zur kanadischen Provinz Ontario. Sie ist mit 2766 km² größer als Luxemburg und die größte in einem Süßwassersee gelegene Insel der Erde (Binneninsel). Im Jahr 2001 hatte sie 10.603 Einwohner (Quelle), das entspricht einer Bevölkerungsdichte von etwa 4 Einw./km².
Auf der Insel gibt es insgesamt über 80 Seen, von denen einige wiederum kleine Inseln enthalten. Die historische Inselstadt Manitowaning, gegründet 1837, war die erste europäische Siedlung auf der Insel.
