Rain, Rocks and Ripples

Though often idyllic, the rocky
outer islands of Georgian Bay can also be bleak and inhospitable. In
winter, they are bombarded by ice and snow, and in summer,
the relentless heat of the sun.
On just such a blistering summer day, the first drops of
rain of an approaching storm are a welcome relief - and
a warning to take cover. Because these
small outer islands are isolated in the midst of a vast expanse of water, it
isn't safe to stand and watch the approach of the often violent thunderstorms
that race across the Bay. A person standing on the treeless rock could
all too easily become a human lightning rod.
