The ice on Lake Nipissing moved a bit last week when the wind blew from the North.
The Canadian Shield, tough and unyielding, piles the ice on top of itself.
Little bother, the sun will remove the burden in the next little while.
*Thanks to Francoise Noel whose blog revealed a new (to me) method of changing colour to monochrome.

In spring the ice huts come off the lake. This is a particularly well constructed example.
A closer view:
I guess you have to go ’round the back?

We have several outcroppings of the Canadian Shield in our part of the world.
Like this one.
Simple, subtle and beautiful!

The ice is moving away from the shore leaving water in its place.
The black colour shows that it’s getting rotten.
One more week perhaps.

The early run-off was slowed a day ago by more “normal” temperatures for this time of year. The water flow is a bit less frantic.
Now it feels more like spring than the summer of last week.

A unique place to buy minnows and worms and leeches and anything else you might need to go fishing.
It occurs to me that stores like this also sell “hope”.
There are no guarantees when you go fishing!

A month ago it looked like this:

Canadore Trails beside Duchesnay Falls:
Pleasant walk on a spring day.

Duchesnay Falls near town is running fast.
Recent record temperatures have caused the snow to disappear in record time.
The “We’ve got drought!” headlines are about a month away.

Saint Joseph’s on the shore of Lake Nipissing.
Warm temperatures and ice combine to make a surreal scene.

In spring the water runs.
This little waterfall won’t be running in about a month.
Enjoy it now!
