 I found 8" of ice here at the east marrows of the Indian Dock Channel.  Taken Jan.13/19


 I found 8" of ice in the middle of Five Mile Bay on the white ice near the snowmobile as well as the whole length from The Indian Dock Channel.  I found 7" of black ice at the formerly open pool in the center of the bay.  Taken Jan. 13/19
Please note that there is no access to the south channel by snow mobile from Parry sound because of the trials being closed over Parry Island and a bubber at the boat launch at Glen Burney Marina.  Some people are looking into this and hopefully a resolution can be found.  I will keep you posted.

 Here is a series of pictures taken on my return trip out to Kineras Bay.  You can see my track from the trip in in several shots.  I was hoping for some sun shine for the trip out but it didn't happen.  A little blue sky makes a huge difference in the pictures.  Taken Jan.4/19
