When cabin fever sets in, memories of a Hecla Island sunset

It’s been a very mild winter in Southern Manitoba, very little to complain about.  So when winter arrived this week and temperatures dropped I started getting a bit of spring fever, for days like the one pictured above.  This was an image from a few years back of a Lake Winnipeg sunset from Hecla Island Provincial Park.   This also happens to be a dog friendly beach, so we usually go a couple times a year, and will look forward to bringing Angus and Fergus for a swim this summer.

A sunset shot of Lake Winnipeg, on Victoria Beach during late summer of 2010.   Blue-Green Algae made an appearance in the south basin.
