  1. That is absolutely gorgeous. Like a painting. The fluidity and colours in the water is so lovely. You do so many wonderful pictures, Ed, but this one takes my breath away.

    This is stunning Ed…you’ve managed to capture the waters movement!

    Was in Toronto yesterday and on the way home had to make take a bit of a different route home through Bala, Port Carling, Bracebridge, nice to pass through again…it has been awhile.

    Heard there was a bush fire in Milford Bay…could smell the smoke but didn’t see any smoke…I’m hoping the fire fighters were able to get it under control with out too much trouble!!!

    Nice to see you and Cindi…

    There was Fire flames and alot of smoke and evacuation of 50 homes
    Community Centre was full of displaced cottagers and Milford Bay blocked off by OPP

    Fire bomb planes were needed as fire was out of control day before you passed by

    Marlon – sometimes life is a blur πŸ™‚
    I hope the Huckleberry Trail will be back open soon after the fire
