6/24 Lake Sturgeon with an unexpected detour on the way to Fenelon Falls

Another beautiful day!!  We were waiting  to leave Bobcaygeon when  a drone was flying overhead from the beach just beyond the lock.  I waved, just in case we would be in a You Tube video.
 We headed out on Sturgeon Lake.  The views were stunning.
Due to an unexpected detour, we ended up heading into a very narrow channel toward Lake Scugog.  There were some amazing things to see there.  There were many fisherpeople.  I asked one what he was hoping to catch and he told me the prize catch was perch.  He didn't have any yet.
Along the way, there were fishing camps in various stages of disrepair.  Each one made a stunning reflection in the water.

Once we determined we were heading in the wrong direction, we turned around to get back on Sturgeon Lake.  In the meantime, our wake even had reflections of the sky and we saw a pair of swans.

We did get some weeds around the prop, so John hopped in the water, which is in the 70's, and removed them.  Yes, we shut the boat off first.

Finally, we went through the Fenelon Falls lock and tied up to the lock wall.  They have electricity here and water on the lock wall.  Some other boats that we know are here too and they came out to catch our lines.  So thanks to Su Sueno and TriVail. 

This is a small city with a large tourist population.  The schools finished up this week and the increase in tourism is noted.  I went to the farmers' market with Carolynn from Su Sueno and got more butter tarts to freeze.  Then I walked over the bridge that had decorative planters to Tim Hortons for an iced coffee.
This town has a wonderful mural on a wall of a business.  I felt like I could take a right and walk right into the scene.
