Georgian Bay

It's vacation time for us!
We are off to the cottage on beautiful Georgian Bay.

This year, Beep, (our granddaughter) will be spending a whole week with us!
Her first vacay without mom and dad!

Because of the cliffs surrounding the cottage, we have sporadic internet access,
so... see you in September when we get back!

Pond Mills/Westminster Ponds

Yesterday we went for a hike...
Over the meadow
Through the woods
To Saunders Pond
There are 6 ponds in a 200 hectares area.  The ponds are “kettle lakes” created in this glacial clay area 14,000 years ago by the melting of large blocks of glacial ice.


Pond Mills Environmentally Significant Area (ESA) is a large publicly-owned ESA in London (population 366,151). The ESA is significant for its size and for its great variety of natural habitats within the boundaries of a major urban centre. The site is also designated as a Provincially Significant Wetland.
We live in the Pond Mills subdivision,
the Pond Mills/Westminster ESA is three blocks from our house.
We enjoy visiting "the Ponds" in all seasons.
Beep, our granddaughter.
