Wenonah at Windermere House

The day at Windermere House on Lake Rosseau started out nicely, lots of sunshine and a breeze that made the heat and humidity almost comfortable.  Today was the the day the Heritage Foundation (now called, Muskoka Conservancy) was to take two cruises on the Wenonah, a ship built in 2002 and convincingly made to look like it was really built in the 1800s.  It sure looks like a sister-ship to the Segwun.

Anyway, the wind picked up to where the odd piece of paper would blow around, then it got strong enough for the lake to generate white-capped waves.  Then as swells grew, the wind increased even more and began tossing large planters, chairs and even a lattice fence around.

I have no idea if there was a second cruise after all today, choosing to follow the lead of the other vendors and skedaddle.  It was getting nasty!

It's too bad too, because I was hoping to take more shots of the Wenonah.
