Georgian Bay - Henvey Inlet

Just a few miles from Golden Sword Island, Henvey Inlet cuts deep into the mainland.  There are places along the inlet where boats can tie beam to shore, a number of bays and coves with great anchoring, and islands and shores beckoning to be explored.

Most of Henvey Inlet is not charted - no depths and no rocks noted.  Exploration by dinghy found even more possible anchorages, particularly at the higher water levels experienced in 2016.  One unnamed cove has a narrow entrance and is surrounded by granite ridges.  A full 360° of protection from wind and fetch.  The next visit to Henvey Inlet will find Last Dance in this small cove.

Along the entrance to this cove stands a lone tree, seemingly standing sentry to watch over those who might venture this far.

The stories about fishing being productive in Henvey Inlet proved true.  A small Pike took a large interest in a saltwater spoon trolled behind the dinghy.  Dinner.
