We took a too brief trip to Barrie but did at least enjoy the lakeshore with a dramatic sky.

These grubs, probably the larvae of the three-striped potato beetle (Lema daturaphila), were munching on my tomatillos. I also saw a lovely pale mayfly (on flickr).

Stone Arch Dam

After a deer fly infested hike, we came upon the Stone Arch Dam on Whitefish Creek between Sand Lake and Whitefish Lake. From the dam, the wooden penstocks and powerhouse are visible (the dam was created during the building of the Rideau Canal between 1826 and 1832 – the generating station was added in 1947). The lock gates are operated by hand and there are historical buildings on the site. Worth a visit despite the bugs (which were only in the trail in the woods)!
