St. Clair River, Ontario - Ava Mitchell
Since I was born, I have been going to this place of complete silence, I have been feeling the silvery scales of yellow perch, bass and walleye.
Since I was born, the rolling waves have soothed my soul and the blue heron’s call has calmed my nerves and I have loved to ride over the cold bounding waves of Lake Huron.
Since I was born, I have loved the feel of the cool water foaming over my body and consuming me in cold silence, feeling the slimy seaweed grabbing my feet and legs.
I have loved this place very much and still do - that is what draws me back year after year.
