I made them get wet OR Famous Blue Raincoat

(viewed 859 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 506 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.

Things I saw that are not plants

black and white grasshopper, milk snake, millipede, monarch butterfly larva, orangey butterfly, swallowtail butterfly, snapping turtle, yellow bird, and triangular bug. I also saw, but did not get a photo of a coyote, deer, and the back end of a black bear running away.

flying far north

(viewed 1075 times)
These are Canada geese, real ones, not the ones that hang out in parks all year round. They are flying north to Hudson's Bay because they have not found a mate and they are about to moult, loose their feathers and not be able to fly, and be vunerable. So they go north now, in flocks. A lot of rejection here. It happens everywhere. Evidently Hudson's Bay is where to go to nurse your blues.
