Up The Creek 2015

Just a stone’s throw away from our marina and a short dinghy ride away, is Nogies Creek, funneling the headwaters of the Precambrian Shield to Pigeon Lake. Here linger the spirits of First Nations and European settlers, who paddled these waters some two hundred years ago.
Peaceful shallows, dotted with cottages and the odd grandiose homestead.
This was our first trek up the creek this year, thankfully not much has changed since our last visit of 2014, also featured on this blog….


Icebound on the Trent Severn Waterway

We are in Ontario Canada, Pigeon Lake North, near Bobcaygeon – Lock 32 of the Trent Severn Waterway. We came up here to enjoy the winters that promised the “Great White North” experience. Well, the first two were quite disappointing, but this one is starting off just right. A foot of snow this morning and forecasted temps to be minus 21 degree Celsius tonight / -21° C.

So, here are last year’s and a comparison this year’s webcam images, taken in the same location, just different camera angles:

Here is a look at the images around the boat today:

Tinkering indoors

As another Canadian winter nears, I go into this nice, indoors tinkering mode.
This time the experiment is what I’ve often imagined as sharing a visual account of nature that we are blessed with around us; living on a boat.

It also means learning new tricks on Facebook… https://www.facebook.com/cruisingdogtv
