It was evening when I was down at the lake taking these shots, so the lifeguards were no longer on duty. But there were still quite a few people out enjoying the cool breeze and the lake atmosphere. The only ones actually in the water were the kids as the water in Lake Ontario stays pretty cool year round. But that can definitely be a good thing on a hot day!
I also found out that the Toronto lifeguards are attached to the Police service, so I don't think they are volunteers. But I could be wrong. Enjoy your Thursday, the weekend is right around the corner.
