John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Photos - Fall Colors on Lake Katchewanooka, Ontario

Photos - Fall Colors on Lake Katchewanooka, Ontario

These photos were taken with my old Toshiba 3 mp camera so they're not too sharp but they bring back fond memories of fall in Ontario. I wish I had a better camera back then. My wife used to feed the blue jays, squirrels and chipmunks. The fishing was good too!

Very pretty!    I used to spend time with my sister at their lake cottage on Muskoka...a very different summer experience from the pacific coast one!

John:

I was just wondering....

 

How did you do that anyway?

Hmmmmm....?

 

 

 

Inquiring minds want to know.

Afterall, it's so symmetrical.

You could even stand it on it's head horizon.

John, reading between the lines we feel you really are missing our variety of weather rather than the 70-80 degrees in the sun and sand all the time.

Brian - The lake runs from Lakefield to Young's Point, Ontario. It's famous for muskie and bass fishing and is part of the Trent / Severn Waterway with lakes and locks all the way from Lake Simcoe to Lake Ontario. It's beautiful country. Here is a link to learn more - http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/lhn-nhs/on/trentsevern/index.aspx

Jim - Aren't you the creative one. You have way too much time on your hands :-)

Hi Al & Peggy - I grew up in Ontario and my parents always had a cottage. Those drives back and forth to cottage country were a pain but it was worth it when you got there. Yes, I miss it but I love where I am now. You can't beat the beach, sun, sand and bikinis!

John, Beautiful shots of the fall colors! So you are a Floridian and a Canadian? I visited Canada for the first time earlier this year and look forward to going back when the weather is a little milder...I'm allergic to the COLD!!!

Anna - We had many family get togethers at the cottage. The Grandkids really liked feeding the chipmunks. I was a "snowbird" for 18 years and then married my wife Marla, who is an American. Now I an a permanant resident.

Steve - I always appreciate your comments.

Wanda - I have become allergic to the cold too. I love going back anytime but winter :-)

Alexander-Slocum - It is beautiful and I used to go snowmobiling and ice skating when I grew up there.

Lee and Carol - Thanks but I wish I had a better camera back then.

Carra - Thank you so much. Too bad I can't beam up like Star Trek, take more photos and beam right back :-)
