Rose Marsh on Lake Ontario in Greece is a very popular place for boaters to anchor up and hang out on hot summer days. But it's also a unusually pristine natural area - which consists of a beautiful beach and a shallow water bay-marsh complex which provides excellent waterfowl nesting, resting and feeding habitat, all part of the Braddock Bay Fish and Wildlife Management Area, Sometimes it's difficult to appreciate the beauty of this place when there's a hundred boats (including me) hanging out. But not today. It was just incredibly beautiful out there. Even though it's right around the corner from Braddock Bay, it has an incredible feeling of remoteness. The fact that it was a near perfect day on Lake Ontario sure didn't hurt. It's funny that we're getting our summer in September, kind of like last year. The water is still crystal clear after being messed up all summer. And the lake was like a sheet of glass all day - very rare that it happens.
