Seeing these bright-colored buoys on the water makes me smile!
They make me long for endless warm lazy summer days on the water… days that seem too far off on yet another gray spring day in Northern Ontario. The ice is still melting. The lakes will warm up. It all takes time.
Boaters, cottagers, fishermen, and just about anyone who spends time on or near the water are familiar with these buoys.
These buoys serve an important purpose though. Anchored to something under the water they are a marker, connected to a waterline perhaps, a mooring site, or a danger point to be avoided.
For me, they are a beacon of warmer weather to come, and oh, boy, I’ll be ready!
