Big Bay, Ontario: Beach

Sometimes a picture does all the work in describing a place.

Welcome to Big Bay, located not surprisingly, on the coast overlooking Georgian Bay on the water-hugging road between Owen Sound and Wiarton.

The beach is filled with stones instead of sand. Therefore, it's a great place to pick up a stone and send it skipping into the bay. I was never good at that particular skill, but you might be.

The beach also has a nice dock, which can be used for boating but also serves as a launch point for swimming and diving. The water might be a little cold, but you'll get used to it.

A general store is about a block away from the beach, and it sells homemade ice cream - with some unusual flavors. (Carrot cake ice cream? Not bad.) The locals like to pick up a cone and then head to the beach for a nice view while eating it.
