Amongst the shales and shores of Georgian Bay, in quiet times around dusk, you just may spot a Great Blue or Grey Heron, fishing for it’s dinner in the shallow waters. They are peaceful birds, on long, graceful legs good for wading.

I was once told as a child, that Herons represented self-reflection - teaching us to follow our intuition and to know ourselves well.
