]On Friday, July 30th, Joe and I began our weekend journey to a friend’s wedding in Sturgeon Falls, Ontario. Sturgeon Falls is a small town about 30 minutes west of North Bay. We planned our route from Newcastle up Highway #12 to Highway #11 hoping to stop and see some interesting spots in the Township of Lake of Bays. As we neared Huntsville, we were ready for lunch so decided to stop there.
This touristy town was very busy on the long weekend but after lunch we managed to book a spot on a small tour boat. The one and a half hour tour around Fairy Lake gave us an opportunity to see some of the lovely cottages and the many boaters enjoying the hot July day. I’ve included some photos that I took in the slideshow below.
I see the photographer goes on holiday. Looks like you had a great time. I really liked your caterpiller shot. Super photos.
I enjoy holidays and love taking photographs when I’m away. This summer I’ve been on a few little trips and the one I enjoyed the most was to Nova Scotia.
I will feature some of those shots when I get a chance to sort through them and choose some of the better ones for the blog.
Do you know the type of caterpillar that I took at Buckshot Lake?
Ontario Tourism would love these! I particularly like the one of the sailboat.
Hey, Ontario Tourism is welcome to call me any time!
Glad you liked it. I noticed that the man in the sailboat was fully clothed. Sun protection I guess???
I think it is from the Woolley Bear family of moth caterpillers. The 4 white bumps are likely a parasitic insect that used the caterpiller to lay eggs, yuck. Do you know how many caterpillers there are, wholly smokes you could spend weeks and still not find it..
Thanks Barry! Nature sure is interesting and I have very limited knowledge about caterpillars for sure!
