The Bay

We have had some great skies lately, and here is another example.

This is a view of Irondequoit Bay from the bay bridge approach looking north. If you look closely on the horizon and beyond the line of houses you can see a slim bit of Lake Ontario, the last in the chain of the Great Lakes.

I live just off Bay Road which follows the bay on the east side. Unfortunately I do not have a view of the bay from my house but it is quite close.

They tell me that until the last ice age Irondequoit Bay was the outlet for the Genesee River, which now is located a number of miles to the west. These days the bay is a small boat harbor and a great spot for sailing and water skiing.
