Whitecaps on Georgian Bay Shawl

I live in a small town on the southern shore of Georgian Bay, so my hometown IS a destination! Returning home after some time away is wondrous. You come over a hill on the escarpment, and suddenly there’s the bay in front of you, stretching out to the horizon. Georgian Bay’s moods are mercurial: calm and placid one day with barely a ripple on its glassy, blue surface; rough and angry the next with waves pounding the shoreline. In winter, it can be packed with ice, cold and implacable, but beautiful when it reflects an ethereal turquoise colour.
