The butterfly house

It was pretty incredible. Butterflies landing on you all the time. Helen had a real butterfly fan, who wanted to come home with her. Photographing butterflies is like herding cats.

I made them get wet OR Famous Blue Raincoat

(viewed 1034 times)
Helen and Viv went into the Falls, right up close. I made them do it. Mobloggers have no fear.

If you go right up to the Falls, you get a famous blue raincoat. If you are wearing it later on, in some strange place, the chances are pretty good that someone will come up to you and say 'hey, that ride into the Falls was pretty good, eh?'

Recent Moblog stair inspection in Toronto

(viewed 569 times)
Moblog meetup. Yorkshire/Toronto. Viv and Helen came for a visit. I miss having them around my kitchen table. We had a lot to talk about, and sometimes just hanging around doing nothing was just as important. Viv is at the Art Gallery of Ontario, photographing the stairs, which are one of my favourite pieces of wood craftsmanship. I did not allow them much time to look at the art.

Manitoulin Island, northern Lake Huron

Manitoulin is basically a big flat rock, scraped clean by glaciers. No dirt to put your fence posts in so you secure them with boxes of boulders. Rare plants that can't/won't grow anywhere else. Mostly flat grassy fields filled with beef cattle. And a serious fishery--lots of great fresh fish. No rain since early June. Hot but there's lots of places to swim.
