Maple Lake Ontario, early 1970’s McCrackan family photo (My brother and me and some first cousins). I am petting our dog, Teddy.

On Maple Lake, Ontario, an oft-pictured angle. I came late to realizing our land is on the lip of a small cove. Now (that I see it) it is totally obvious,  how the waves are fairly gentle and why we have a naturally sandy beach when most of the lake front does not. Supereasy to see, right? I blame being legally blind (and not having a motorboat) for my lack of awareness because clearly, as far back as this photo which is either 1972 or 73, and indeed since their inception in the early-mid 1940’s our cottages always resided near a cove on the North side of Maple Lake.
Location, location is right.

Same pic with bayview

 

I’m been going through family photos since April of last year and thought I was done but have come across another box that was only semi-sorted.

Update! Once In A Blue Moon – Labour Day Weekend on Maple Lake PHOTOS #haliburtonhighlands #maplelakeontario #holiday

Arrived on Maple Lake the night of the full blue moon. Beautiful.

 

It was a long 675-mile drive and the Labour Day wait at the border was a bit long, too. Plus we ‘lose’ an hour going from Central to Eastern time so arrived at 4:30 a.m. Today was lovely but we got a late start so by the time dinner time was approaching we thought simpler would be better. It just so happened that some of the nicest weather of the day came near day’s end so we whipped up a fresh green salad with some chicken breast strips and sat ourselves right down at water’s edge to enjoy. It was really lovely–so peaceful.

just before sunset. I love this place. It is such a privilege to enjoy it whenever we can.
