~ Newmaker Notes ~
Looking out into Meech Lake. Just out of sight, past the pine trees in the middle, is the Wilson House where the Meech Lake accord was struck. As at all the public beaches we were frustrated by having to stay within the buoy lines, in shallow water. After asking the lifeguards, we found out it was acceptable to go beyond the lines by entering the water from outside of its perimeter. (liability issues, no doubt). So we waded through some weeds and swam to the rock on the point. Swimming together in deep lake water has to be one of our favourite things.
