Foggy Day 3 - A Work in Progress

As usual when I am at the Knoepfli Inn I wake up early in the morning to the sound of the Magnetawan River, make myself a cup of tea, pick up my camera and go out for a walk.

I have not yet walked through all of the 400 acre (161 hectare) property that straddles both sides of Highway 124, but each year I explore more of the land along the river and go through the forest.

With this morning being very foggy I went across the Highway to the farmhouse and wandered down to the boat house and dock and took photographs of the mist shrouded Ahmic Lake.

Ahmic Lake is a part of the Magnetawan River waterway in the Almaguin Highlands region.

The lake is approximately 12 miles (19 km) long and has a maximum depth of  89' (27m) with the average depth being 27' (8m).

Many of the cottages and homes on the lake have remained with the families that purchased land around the lake as far back as the 1860s; making Ahmic Lake's shores intact over the years with very little change.

After breakfast I did this quick watercolour sketch and I will post it at a later date once it has been completed.
