Seen from north shore two-man crew prepare to unfurl second main sail of small sailing craft on Lac Saint Louis, a part the mighty Saint Lawrence River, as the winds pick up blowing across the waves.

Judging by the numerous “white caps” all around them it seems their timing is spot on during this sunny, warm yet windy Sunday afternoon.

We were visiting the famous Stewart Hall in Pte. Claire to view a minor art exhibition allegedly put on to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary afterwards we walked towards the Lac Saint Louis which borders the old mansion’s grounds.

Stewart Hall originally an “old money” mansion belonged to the Stewart family, who later donated it to Pte.Claire to be used as a community center .

The well kept grounds behind Stewart Hall is a small wooded park with benches and a sort of “sea wall” bordering the water allowing visitors a chance to relax and see the activity on the lake normally teaming with sail boats and other pleasure craft during summer.

I took this long distance picture while sitting on one of the benches and viewing many small craft out on the lake along with various waterfowl like ducks and seagulls flying or floating around near shore.

This is my contribution for WP single word prompt:”UNFURL”.
