 It's melting now.

In Need Of Repair

It's the fence that needs a repair, not the critter!

Remember Them

I photographed this newly opening poppy in my garden, in brilliant sunlight.
It's a SOOC (straight out of camera) shot, so it's not picture perfect, but I think, quite fitting for Remembrance Day

I am not blogging often, due to time constraints.
I hope to be back regularly in the new year.

The Present Moment

Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have.
Make the Now the primary focus of your life.
It's been lovely, but the time has come to say goodbye to blog land, for now.
I need to be present in the moment(s) that I have left before me.
Wishing great moments for all those that have visited my blog.
Take care and enjoy the now. 
Until we meet again.

Going To Town

Tobermory is a small community located at the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula in the municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula.
It's about a ten minute drive from the cottage at Cape Hurd.
A day trip into town is always fun.

Lots of wood carvings, boats and even a pirate for Beep to pose with.

Nature's Abstract

Just after sunset at the Pinery Provincial Park, Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada
SOOC, all I did was crop it. Clouds, not smoke,
 and the two vertical black lines are contrail remnants.

My computer has gone in for repairs, so this will be my last post until it gets home.

I was so intent on photographing the reflections on the boat windows, that I didn't notice I had cut off the GL from the word GLASS!

Fathom Five National Marine Park is a National Marine Conservation Area in the Georgian Bay part of Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada, that seeks to protect and display shipwrecks and lighthouses, and conserve freshwater ecosystems. You can take a GLass bottom tour from Tobermory, to view the shipwrecks.

A Lovely Surprise

We have not seen as many Monarch butterflies as usual over the summer,
 in our yard in SW Ontario. So I was very happy to see...

 Lot's of Monarchs at the cottage, on the Bruce Peninsula!
(I added a bit of texture to this collage)

Summer's End

"All good things must come to an end". 
 A wonderful summer spent in the company of my granddaughter, 
at home and the cottage.
It's back to school for her tomorrow, and back to the daily routines for me.
