Two generations out for a paddle
I think this was grampa and grandson, although it may have been dad and son, out for a ride in their canoe.
OK. But are they paddling on a lake or a pond? Jacob asked me last week what the difference between a lake and a pond is, and that is a very good question.
Some people say a pond is man-made and a lake is made by Mother Nature. Hmmm. I know of many lakes that are man-made, so that cannot ALWAYS be true. Lake Scugog west of where I live is man-made, for example.
Other people say a lake is big and a pond is small. OOPS! Apparently this is not necessarily so either. There's a lake in New York State (sorry the lake's name escapes me) that is smaller than the local mill pond.
And still others say a pond is shallow enough for sunlight to reach the bottom at it greatest depth. Maybe so, I'm not sure.
I'm guessing there is no definitive answer. Do if it's called a pond, it's a POND. If it's called a lake...well, you get the picture.
