My Watermark is Lake Ontario, near Pickering.

My most powerful memory of this waterbody is all the times I've gone to the lakeshore. I always feel like I can breathe so much better by the water than anywhere else. My friend was having an anxiety attack a couple weeks ago so we went to the lake and immediately he felt better.
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?

There is nothing better than a 20 knot wind out of the south-west, with 5 foot waves, blue skies, and warm air. Magic!
