November’s digital download

This month’s FREE digital wallpaper evokes Lake Superior’s “gales of November.”

Thousands of boats, ships and canoes have been claimed by Lake Superior over the centuries; the Edmund Fitzgerald is simply the most famous.

This photo was snapped on the northern shores of Lake Superior at Neys Provincial Park. If you’re a history buff, consider a 2018 visit to explore Ney’s rich cultural heritage. Explore the remains of POW Camp 100, or stop by the visitor centre (open July/August), which displays an artifact from the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Why driftwood matters

Today’s post comes from Laura Myers, Senior Park Interpreter of Neys Provincial Park.

Driftwood – it makes a great bench to watch the sunset, a balancing beam to play on, or that perfect element to your photograph.

There’s something about driftwood that gives beaches that rugged beauty factor. Walking on a beach, listening to the waves and the birds, and looking at the different pieces of driftwood can be wondrous and relaxing.

Has a piece of driftwood ever caught your eye and made you wonder where it originally came from? How it got that far up the beach? The size of the wave that put it there? What species of tree or how old it is?

Each piece of driftwood has its own journey and its own story. But its story isn’t over when it washes up on the beach.
