Carnival of Postcards - Water

I have quite a few postcards in my collection so I found quite a few with water on them. Some were more recent ones so I couldn't post them.

The above was sent by mother to my father the year before they were married. My dad was overseas serving with the Perth Regiment. My mother is on holidays up on Manitoulin visiting family. The family property went right down to Lake Mindemoya.

The postcard was written July 25 1945

Dear Bob
I can't seem to get around to a letter but will later.

The weather has been grand and I'll be telling you what we have been doing.
As always
