WooHoo - a place to swim!

The problem with summers in Nova Scotia is the water is COLD. Too cold for me to swim (my feet turn purple just walking on the beach)

I was talking to my neighbour and she said that she used to go for a daily walk with another neighbour to a lake. With a beach.
I had heard that there was a road somewhere to a large lake in the woods, but , although I could see the road on some maps, it didn't appear to be where it should be.
I was told to walk down someone's driveway and "keep right and keep going". Ms. L and I set out on an adventure. Down an old, overgrown logging road. Through a stream or two. Over the poison ivy.  20 minutes later. There it was. Like a Muskoka lake. Sandy! Warm!

We swam and I brought Mr. B back a few days later. I am thrilled. Our summer paradise keeps getting better and better :)

Next year I will try to bike there.
