In celebration of the beauty of being on the beach in summer – which as e.e.cummings says –  is always a way to find ourselves, to ground our spirits in the larger whole, here are some photos from my too-short holidays at the Pinery Provincial Park on Lake Huron and a day trip to Sibbald Provincial Park on Lake Simcoe.

“The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient.  One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.”  Anne Morrow Lindbergh
