Pebble Beach, Marathon, Ontario

Pebble Beach is a 2km stretch of beach loaded with deposits of huge rounded pebbles and driftwood. Smoothed by wave action, the large rocks are piled on the steep shoreline making for difficult walking, but the beach is really beautiful and was well worth stopping for rock hunting. It was another overcast day when we visited but the moments of sunshine penetrated the clear water bringing out hues of greens and blues that were lovely.

It wasn’t all just rocks however. We stayed two nights in Marathon, camping on a very pretty lake north of town. The following afternoon after returning from our hike, we had a few hours of sunshine that brought out the green grasses and pines and reflected the blue skies in the calm water:
