went back to the dock again , found a few more things , more modern beer bottles and cans . several cups and beer glasses . metal wiper blade , vape pen , blackberry cellphone which likely been down there a while as it had rust on it

Canada dry aluminum can from late 80's , in good condition for being underwater so long , most of the colour still there and no dents in can

muskoka dry ginger ale bottle and 7 up shield bottle from Toronto , not much paint left on it though

also went for 1 more swim at another location which I've been checking for years . and found more stuff

lots of coca cola - 2 broken from 30's ( 34 and 36 ) , 46 and 50's not broken , and some 60's acl bottles , and an older 1915 patent bottle , in 2016 found another in same spot so somewhat familiar with it , believe its the first hobbleskirt as it came out in 1915 , broken at top but glass in otherwise good condition

pepsi 6 oz bottle and Browns beverages , some beer bottles , one older broken one might be for Reinharts Toronto , green 7 oz bottle

damaged milk jug for " ashgrove dairy " never heard or found one before , appears to be local and from the Bracebridge area , will post somethingto the milk section later as I'm currently trying to find out more about it

it doesn't have one marked , the Canadian ones don't have any cities marked on the bottom , the one I found in 2016 was the same
Too bad, wonder why they did that
