birds on boat

We keep our sailboat at the Port Whitby Marina on the north shore of Lake Ontario. Since the harbor and sometimes the lake freeze in winter, the boat is stored on a cradle on land. On April 23, we removed the winter cover to prepare for our launch on May 13. A couple of days before the …

IMG_3190

The summer travel season is in full swing.
