Black Pond || Photo Set 3 || The Beach (Part 2)

Photos of the Black Pond beach, on beautiful Lake Ontario (one of the North American ”Great Lakes’). The water here is usually so clear and lovely to swim in. In this set there are a few images taken at sunset, but I have many more and will be posting a photo set dedicated to images of sunset at Black Pond, next.

Photos of the Black Pond beach, on beautiful Lake Ontario (one of the North American ”Great Lakes’) and the sand dunes that act like a buffer between the beach and the marsh.

Black Pond || Photo Set 2 || Flora

These photos are of some of the wildflowers, water plants, moss and fungi, along the Black Pond Boardwalk, which is a part of the Lake Ontario, Seaway Trails. These wild blossoms are part of what makes this spot so beautiful and enchanting.

Black Pond || Photo Set 1 || The Boardwalk

These photos are of the Black Pond Boardwalk, which is a part of the Seaway Trails. To get to the Black Pond Beach, you walk along this beautiful path, through the wetland surrounding the shores of Lake Ontario. I love the stroll through this enchanting spot almost as much as I love the beach itself. The marsh is beautiful!

Welcome!

My Husband is currently stationed at Fort Drum, NY. Rin’s Reviews is going to serve as a blog where I can showcase and share all the beautiful things and places that I find. The hidden treasures, the best kept secrets, and the enchanting (both natural and man made) that fill my soul with joy and wonder. The places that transform living here from being just another post, to feeling like home or make me look forward to going out and exploring.

I’ve been at Fort Drum since May 2010, and my husband got there ahead of me in September 2009. But it was only just this past July, that we finally were able to get a vehicle. And so finally, we’re getting to explore and enjoy the area. There is so much to discover in beautiful, Upstate New York! And this is where I will share what we find.

Up until now, living here has often left me feeling isolated and trapped. Missing many of my favourite places, both where I’m from in Northern Ontario, and where my husband is from in NYC. There is a lot of rural communities and countryside around Fort Drum and things are far distances apart. Without a vehicle ‘til now, we weren’t able to see or do very much. But already in just a couple of months, we’ve found places that have helped me change my outlook about the area. Places that I look forward to visiting again and that fill me with happiness and peace when I’m there.

From finding a beautiful little beach, a harbor where my almost 3 year old can feed ducks, and a lovely little tea shop, I am starting to love living here at Fort Drum.
