Kiss The Ground You Walk On, Canada
The A,B,Cs of how to be a better Canadian
Most tourists do not see this view of Wasaga Beach, the world's longest freshwater beach. That is because most tourists visit in the summer months. Here, in this photograph by "George's Georgian Bay" author, George Czerny, this westward view shows this part of southern Georgian Bay frozen over and snow-covered in February. The Nottawasaga River's mouth is at left, where it joins Nottawasaga Bay, which is part of Georgian Bay. Visible upstream on the river is the "old" bridge which is close to Beach Area One. Just beyond the "old" bridge is Nancy Island where are excellent museum is open during the summer months. In the distance, at very top of this bird's-eye view, are the Blue Mountains, which are part of the World Biosphere Niagara Escarpment. The photograph below shows one of Georgian Bay's spectacular sunsets. The Town of Collingwood is located on the far shore, as seagulls enjoy the view during a warmer time of the year.

Seagulls, anywhere around Georgian Bay: if you feed them prepare to be pestered by these birds. They are ever-vigilant for scraps of food. Although their grace in the air is a delight. Below, a seagull seems to be pacing this foursome as this family heads for a swim at Wasaga Beach. This photograph is a northward view from the beach and, as one can see, there's no land in sight! Georgian Bay is approximately 100 miles, from north to south, and about 50 miles wide. Georgian Bay is on the east side of Lake Huron, which is one of the five, famous Great Lakes.
