Everything Georgian Bay. Well mostly the eastern shoreline, and the general vicinity of Parry Sound. Cottaging, Boating, Kayaking, Canoe, Photography, and more than I can think of at this moment.
Taken some 14-16 years after the maximum high water level occurred in 1986. Lichen reportedly grows very slowly, but a single season of submersion will kill it. Learn more about Lichen. The additional horizontal lines, show staining or possibly etching of the granite rock by seasonal algae growths.

I find decades later I’m going to be doing the same with my Yardcam setup. Several times this past Winter an inexplicable event has occurred. My LTE Hotspot has stopped communicating with the cell phone network. Past experiences have been limited, but the unit gets hung negotiating a connection with the local Cell Tower. The unit will have 3-4 bars, 3G or 4G status, but no data moving. Most annoying as it requires me to drive several hundred kilometers to press and hold the power button, turning it off. Then I release the button. Then I press again to turn it back on. With in moments the unit has a functioning cell tower connection. Duh. I’ve requested from my service provider at their end to effectively hang up on the LTE Hotspot, forcing the LTE to try again, but to no avail.
Recently I had a compound failure. The computer serving as the host for the webcam decided to reboot. Though I thought I’d turned off every possible avenue for that behaviour, I missed something. The result is the image showing “No device selected”, a bug between the HP Netbook and the Logitech Webcam I’m using. On an Acer Netbook its fine, the device is found after a reboot and selected. The solution here, is of course to reselect the device. Again Duh! In future I’ll be able to do this with a Remote Desktop connection. However can’t do that if the LTE Hotspot is broken, which it did about 4 days later.
This is where the Watch Dog Timer comes in. I’m going to set it up to force a restart of the LTE Hotspot every X number of days. How I’m going to do that, I don’t know, but I’ll figure out something.
