Watermark by Gill Watt

My Watermark is Richardson Beach on the St. Lawrence River in Kingston, Ontario.

This was a wonderful place to swim as a kid. There were beautiful change rooms, fun lifeguards and a busy place with lots of kids. It felt like the place to be. I wish it could be like that again.
Watermarks are true stories about you and your connection to a body of water. By archiving your story, you add to a living record of our shared water heritage, protecting these waters for generations to come. So tell us: What is your watermark?

Lake Ontario is beautiful, and it's alive and it's our job to keep it in everyone’s presence. Lake Ontario is my connection to the rest of the waters of the world.
