    Little Lake, ON - Mitchell Kelley

My Watermark is Little Lake, Ontario.

Since a couple years ago when I first went to my grandma and grandpa’s house, they had a lake in the backyard. It was named Little Lake which was in Barrow Bay. It was so cool that I will never forget the moment that I first say it.

There were docks everywhere around the lake. There was one dock for every home or cottage. Every morning, my Grandpa would wake me up at 5 and I would spend 4 hours on the bay. That bay means so much to me that I would sit on the dock all day and fish. The cool thing is that they had a double dock. Once every year, I would spend one week to spend with my family and sit by the bay.
