Today started out with a quick trip to the grocery store in Sarnia. A group I follow on Facebook set our Weekly Theme Challenges for their member and this week’s challenge is “Mailboxes” so I had Earl (and myself of course) on the look our for something a little original. Well we succeeded I believe. The last image was of my husband Earl of … Read More July 30th, 2018 – A morning visit to Rock Glen and Rock Glen Family Resort
Earl and I had a chance on this beautiful sunny day to hike up along Arkona Road toward to upcoming highway. We took Casey and Finnigan (our trusting four legged family members) who love to take their daily walks to sniff out smells and see new things of interest – especially squirrels and birds every day. I brought along the camera in hope of … Read More July 19th, 2018 – It was a hiking, laughing, happy kind of day today.
I sent Earl out to scout for me today and let me know if the trail was too difficult or maybe comfortable instead to attempt later on this week. The trails are definitely nice but the stairs going down into the Gorge and then the stairs coming back out of the gorge are numerous, steep and difficult. Good exercise indeed but not for those … Read More July 28th, 2018 – Earl taking a walk along the Rock Glen Trail
The Hummingbirds There is a ruby throat hummingbird and a second one I am not sure if it is a juvenile or a different kind but I will find out for sure. They are so fascinating to photograph and I love watching what these tiniest of birds can do and the behaviours that they demonstrate to me throughout the day. The next series of … Read More July 27th, 2018 – This day goes to the birds
Something you might not have learned about me yet is that I love to photograph insects and critters of all kinds. Sometimes the smaller the better. On this particular day it was raining cats and dogs and the only thing I found to take pictures of was of no longer alive horse fly. I managed to prop him up long enough to get these … Read More July 26th, 2018 – A little Creepier today
Earl and I were not planning on photographing anything today. We took a run into Sarnia to buy some groceries and as we drove by we stopped at a nearby Golf Club where we were interesting in getting prices for putting and golfing in the next few days. While there I spotted a Sand Crane in the pond which seemed a little odd as … Read More July 25th, 2018 – A Few Pretty Flowers
So Earl and I are travelling a little closer to home during the summer. We need to be close enough to our parents in case they might need us at any given time. However we are still managing to getting our hiking and walking in and enjoying the opportunity to photograph the beautiful landscapes and waterfalls we see along the way. Here are some … Read More July 24, 2018 – Photgraphing the Rock Glen Falls
On this particular day my husband Earl and I had previously seen these two very old farm homes that tells there own stores and holds their own secrets of all the things that went on while families inhabited the building in their days. If only the walls, windows, porches could talk. I would love to hear what they have to say.
