Sounds like very good canoeing waters - I have not looked at map yet, hoping to catch you in here the way the cafe was meant -and we did it !
Is there a BAY , not bar, lol... or harbor of sorts that keeps the waters canoeable ?
Must be a beautiful place to live - ashore anyway, beautiful in the fall I'd imagine

I mean on the map where it shows Big Bay Town Park, there is a little number 23 there. Anyway, the Town Park is where I saw they were renting out some canoes.

in relative terms, in the evening, yes. For example, I set mine FWD allready, 4:30 became 5:30, and since it has tended to get dark around 7 here, it''ll get dark at eight. "It was a great act of congress ratified by the president"

I lived there when I was 5. My mom grew up there, so I used to go there a lot when I was younger. I hope to get over there this summer to camp for a few days.

And yes, it is beautiful there in the fall.
