How would you like this kind of view from your retirement home? 
You are looking out over Lake Simcoe, part of the Trent-Servern Waterway of Ontario. It is mainly used in the summer by boaters who wish to explore many of the natural beauties of this province. 
Visible to the left is land known as Georgina Island, home of the Chippewas, part of the First Nation group of he Ojibaway. Ferry service connects it in the summer. In winter there is usually a time of solid ice. That's when cars may move about on the lake. But not yet this winter!

Dear Heidi,
A lovely photograph. I'd like to visit that island by walking across ice. How many feet or miles would that be?

And do you get a lot of birds at those bird feeders during the winter?

Hope all is well. How is Buddy?

Peace.

It reminds me of Vermont along Lake Champlain. Nice, but a view I try to escape as I am able!

We visit Lake Simcoe quite often, have lunch at the Briar's and enjoy the sights.
No winter in Guildwood either. Today we received some snow mixed with rain.
