A thunder storm rolls in over the the Collingwood harbour. This seems to be our weather pattern so far this summer.
Rain this past weekend and warming temps are breaking up the ice along the shoreline.

One of my favourite area beaches in summer, it's pretty icy at the moment.
This pair of Canada geese found some open water along the shoreline at Craigleith.
I often see people hiking along the waterfront, coffee in hand to ward off the cold. I just wish the cups could find their way to a garbage can.
In Search of Open Water
As I lay on the dock taking photos of the ice in Collingwood Harbour I heard the distinct sound of swan wings. I manged to sit up in time for one quick shot.

We had virtually no ice on the bay this winter, but with Spring came bitterly cold winds, freezing the waves that battered the shoreline, leaving mounds of ice in their wake.
Walking on Water
This was open water last week.
It may not look like it but I took this photo on the first day of Spring.
