My holidays over Christmas were spent with friends at Port Dover on the north shore of Lake Erie located about two hours west of Toronto. Although no snow had graced the area at that time there was a chill in the air and a brisk breeze coming across the lake from the south-west. Despite gloves my fingers grew chilled when trying to take photos with my phone, thus these from flickr suit my purpose.

The waves coming into shore were a gray-green in colour, completely different from the water I've watched in Lake Ontario.
But the best thing I noticed was the lack of smog present. Being able to breathe in the quiet atmosphere was a blessing.

There were no other people present on the day I visited the pier, probably due to the cold wind and their preparations for Christmas.
