Happy Lake 2

Happy Lake 2
After a few years of ugggg …we have a 2nd year in a row..of ..what seems like…awesome water….I just want HUG the lake.
 
Like last year…Visibility has gone from less than a meter in the spring to 1.2 to 1.3 today…a normal from years past… you can feel the mixing (balance) of cold and warm water again around your knees…lake side tress (are on dry land) and breathing again….trees….the lakes last line of defense…..meaning the lake is not grabbing as much nutrients..
 
This is an old picture …but we have a massive amount of Byrozoan cultivating on the side of our dock again… The colony is a sign of a healthy lake.. it’s said.
 
Our natural bay is chock full of marine life…
 
We all have a rock or whatever…mine is my dock connected to its 25 year old rings…
 
No alga so far for two years…I remember 3 and 4 years ago..not so good…and about 13 years ago…
 
Get out ..get in the water….enjoy ….we have a beautiful lake when happy!

BARGE on Brandy Lake

Had a call from Gerodie   this morning about a barge on the lake.   I did go for a look but it seems to be gone.

If anyone has information on its …location…job…etc..can you email using the form below.   This email communication is strictly private.

Gerodie is highly active in Muskoka….and runs a pretty good ski school and ski shows as well.

 

 

 

Seriously…Is This a Dumb Move

3 BEER CANS SCREWED TO A BOARD AND SET AFLOAT IN THE LAKE ..

So…this floated up on my shore…but this type of stuff happening  over a wide range of venues  anymore…

Simply no common sense thinking!!

OK….weekend skier maybe would see it…..but some of us cut the wake at a high rate of speed…not looking for killer items in water..

What about kids on tubes ..driver doing a good job for fun…kids have no chance to avoid…a potential death blow

 

Regatta..Don’t Miss an Awesome Time

Annual regatta is being hosted in Launch Bay August 17

The event is well run..something for everyone….many team events.  Bring guests and family.. ..the focus is on kids.

The event is at Jons cottage to the right of the boat launch.   We will update information as it comes in…

ALSO…Jon has informed us the boat launch dock is in.

 

 

Base Line…Lake Water

The Lake…Is our common,  front yard element..

People are still bathing and washing boats in lakes ..,adding nutrients…under the PERCEIVED idea that Bio Degradable Soap is ok .

NOT

The nutrients that we add to the lakes- especially phosphorous- are a major water quality problem. These extra nutrients cause excessive plant growth and the algae build-up you see on your boat’s hull and along shorelines. If we don’t cut down on nutrient loading, we’ll have cloudy water, unpleasant tastes and odours, and a lot fewer fish.   A very  good description by MLA

Bio Degradable Soap best described by the link here …Muskoka Watershed.
