On the shore


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.

I don't think the water is ever too cold for kids!

Agree with Tanya, kids are impermeable to cold water - they just feel the fun. I love your post yesterday too, soldiers all in a row, cool

The lifeguards are very brave people and they do a great work.
Cool shot!I'm envious here, I miss the lovely breeze from the ocean!

Water views are so lovely, even your water views, which don't have any mountains! :)

Looks more like an ocean than a lake. But what a wonderful place to go and shed the cares of the day and the stress of work. Toronto is sited very well! I think you're enjoying your life up there!

Oh I wish I had some cool water to dip into this evening, we hit 105 today!

I grew up near the Atlantic Ocean but spent some time in the Midwest within reach of the Great Lakes. It didn't seem right for there to be beaches and waves and all the trappings of an ocean where my maps told me there was a lake. How are you adjusting?

Great shot. What a great thing to be on a relatively deserted beach.

Nice shot. Makes me long for a cool breeze.

Oh, dear, this looks so desolate. I know things are utterly different a short distance behind the photographer's back.

Not what you usually expect from summer, but really a great image!

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
