You know I think this weather has really made it difficult for me to discipline myself in keeping my posts up to date. Here's another one long overdue! Continuing eastbound on the waterfront trail (east of Lynde Shores) you will come to an off-road and paved part of the trail at Port Whitby for about 60 km. This port has over 400 slips and is an award-winning docking facility. A couple of weeks ago when I was there taking some pictures along the pier, I happened to notice a seagull perched on top of a sign looking as though it had a broken wing. As I approached more closely, it was obvious that it had been badly injured by a fishing hook and fishing line (see more about this story in "A Seagull's Demise" in this blog). Although this sight was pretty sad indeed, it was an otherwise beautiful day with many people beating the heat enjoying water activities, like sailing and swimming.

Advancing further on the Waterfront trail eastward, you will come to Intrepid Park. Here you will see a war memorial from WWII, referred to as Camp X. If you want to do some reading on that, you can find it here.
