[Photo: Before I jumped into the lake, I had to get there]
First, I stopped at Edgeware Line Creek to see if I could catch a glimpse of Snappy lounging under the bridge. I didn't. Only caught my reflection.
Then I stopped at the side of Glencolin Line to see how my future workshop looks. Oh, man. It still looks great. (I wonder how much the next door farmer wants for it? Probably a lot more than I've got).
Then I had to have lunch at The Corner View Cafe, in the centre of the heart of Port Bruce. The Snowbirds (warming up for London Air Show) flew overhead while I licked my chops. Snap, snap, snap.
Then I had to change into my swim trucks and walk - slowly, thoughtfully - toward the beach. It is only 150 metres from The Corner View BLT Emporium to the beach, but I took my time.
"The Deep End. I'm definitely thinking about it."
Then I soaked in some sun.
Then I grabbed my camera and headed toward the water.

Sounds in the air at the small port were different yesterday than a few days earlier. The metal channel barrier was squeaking, or groaning eerily.
The subtle, daily differences in sights, sounds and colours (and more) may be one of the reasons I keep returning to these particular shores. Key Lime ice cream at 3 bucks a pop is a good reason too. : )
Yesterday I went for a dip in the deep end. Small camera got wet... but only for a sec. Photos from 'The Deep End' will appear soon, after the photo card dries off.

From Edgeware Line, my first stop yesterday, to see if Mr. S. Turtle was home:
Nobody home but me.
My future workshop : ) on Glencolin Line:
Not much traffic but the shop will thrive! Kiddin', of course.
[Photo: Erie was perfect for boating and bobbing two days ago]
The first series of photos related to 'big and blustery' Port Bruce revealed an angry side to the north shore of Lake Erie. Sunday (Sept. 17), however, was a boater's delight. And taking a dip came with no risks, unless I dropped my camera while bobbing along in the lake, head above the calm surface.
