Man in Canoe

Man in Canoe


Megan Groves, who lives in Burlington, Ont., took this photo at 6 in the morning while on a camping trip to Algonquin Park in August 2007. She did not know the man in the canoe, and even though he was far away, she says it was so quiet that she was able to carry on a conversation with him from shore.

Row Boats Waiting

Darlene Looy of St. Thomas, Ont., writes, “this is what the East Coast is to me-an ancient way of life. A small dingy awaits, moored, enabling the sailors to row out to their fishing boats in the early morning.” These boats patiently wait in Peggy’s Cove.
