Stoney Lake, north of Peterborough, Ontario.
Weddings can be fun. Weddings held on a small northern lake can be even more fun, especially if you are merely a guest, and you remember to bring along your sea kayak.
But not your wetsuit. Little Stoney Lake, which forms part of a network of such little lakes that connect Lake Ontario and Georgian Bay, was sweltering in thirty-degree heat this June 2. And the water temperature wasn't much cooler.
But it did herald the first swim of the season, and along with it the (pleasantly surprising) first roll. So I guess it's official: summer is here, and it's time to get out there.
