A reader asks: “I hear you are also so deep & cold in the centre there are secrets down there.”

Yes.

Unlike some of the other #bodiesofwater , I find I can be scary enough all by my lonesome without invoking the supernatural.

A friend and I got lost while wading in Lake Ontario once. The fog rolled in so quickly and so dense … we didn't know whether we were going toward shore or into deeper water. Scary.

Thank you!! I’m sending you the very best water. The rest I’m splashing on the tourists.

Feeling frisky today with gale warnings up, no ice, and average temp of around 4°C/40°F; I’m a bit warmer than usual this year.

How are all our #bodiesofwater doing? Anyone frozen over yet? @LakeLanier is freezing temps one of your MOs? Love to know what the average water temperature ranking is for all our lakes and estuaries and rivers.

Well, I don’t really have much of a choice there, but I don’t have to *like* everything that gets sent; maybe it’ll get caught in your ice booms 🤞🏼. If it does show up here (haven’t sensed it yet), given the longevity of the offending object, it’ll be @MightyStLawrence problem eventually anyway.

I suppose, but since lake effect snow may be the thing I’m most known for, I feel entitled to take some time to bask.

I’m about 55°F these days, so two minutes can seem like a looong time, but this was for a good cause and everyone seemed to be having fun, so 🤷🏻‍♂️.

Today is the FIRST EVER #NationalMarineSanctuaryDay !
#OnThisDay in 1972, Congress enacted the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act. Today, our system of underwater parks spans over 620,000 sq miles of our ocean & Great Lakes.

Beauty is a matter of perspective, Louise. I mean, look at the stunning lakes in this image. Which one are you, by the way?
Lake Louise @LakeLouise
I know what you want to ask. Lake Louise, you're so beautiful. How is it you're still single?
Well, I'll admit my standards are incredibly high, but also, have you taken a look at the other #bodiesofwater ? I'm like Elizabeth Taylor in an ocean of Ernest Borgnines.

This seems more like something out of the @LakeLanier playbook, but at least they’re not here yet. The “vampire fish” on the other hand; hoo boy.

@sbuzz59 , I won’t be able to make this one, it’s tough for me to flow upstream, especially up and over Niagara Falls. And Zoom, well, just no, but I’m sure @LakeErie will make an appearance in some form. That said, I’ll be sure to make myself available if it ever gets scheduled in Toronto.

I'm so relieved you finally have a fan, I know how much the approval of others matters to your sense of self-worth. And look, you made it to number three on this list of most picturesque lakes in Canada behind Moraine Lake and @LakeOntario so that's something to celebrate.

These overnight events are fun! And for mortals, there’s gps tracking of the boats. It’s almost over for this year, but mark your calendars for the next annual running! https://www.scotchbonnetra...

A new lake has joined our ranks. Lake Winnipesaukee is a glacial lake and the largest in New Hampshire. Hopefully they'll share the story of how they got their name Smile of the Great Spirit. Welcome to #BodiesOfWater , #Lakewinnipesaukee .
