Declared Canadian Territory
July 3, 2010
We live on the beautiful Great Lakes waterway and like many have a boat. We boat on Lakes Huron and St. Clair, the St. Clair River and smaller connecting waterways. Yesterday we went out to the mouth of the St. Clair River where it enters Lake St. Clair. There is a great swim hole there that is a rather popular summer boating destination. On the way back from the marina I spotted this log that appears to have been officially declared Canadian Territory. The log was washed to shallow waters during the winter run off. I noticed it in the early spring. Some sporting Canadian with a sense of humour placed a Canadian flag on the log over the weekend. The picture was taken from the east shore of the St. Clair River in Ontario, facing the west shore that is Michigan. The International Border divides the St. Clair River so it is quite common to see Coast Guards from both countries, Border Patrol as well as the police patrolling the waters of the St. Clair River.
