Our Location: 109 Lakeshore Road North, Tehkummah, Ontario
I apologize for not posting this summer but truly we don't do much exciting and I dislike boring folks. However we are getting ourselves ready to hit the road soon and have been busy getting summer things packed away and winter things pulled out and packed in the Igloo once again.
|So much rain and moisture here now.|
|Not often you see a partridge fluffing this time of the year.|
We have been suffering through tremendous amounts of rain the past almost 2 weeks and it doesn't look like we'll get much relief except a day here or there until we leave. We have rain with more rain and yet more rain and the odd splash of sun just about every day. The temps have fallen drastically today from the balmy warm numbers of 56F/13C for a day time high to 45F/7C. Last night we stayed just above the freezing mark at 35F/1.6C. Definitely time to move to southern Ontario.
|I love this picture. The reflection is wonderful.|
|These two pictures were taken much earlier in the summer, now the water is cold and dark.|
We will be leaving the Island on Oct 16, (this Tuesday) with at least a one night, possibly two nights stay in the Sudbury area. We have a couple of appointments to tend to before we leave the area. From there we will be heading south easterly for a day or two. I'm sure you can guess where we will be heading, right? Yes back to the farm in Roseneath, just outside of Cobourg. Janet and Dennis have once again graciously agreed to give us a parking spot for a couple of weeks. They left today for a short vacation or rather a cruise, and will return a couple of days after we arrive at the farm. I have a truck repair that needs to be taken care of and I'll have it done in Cobourg. My confidence level in the dealership in Espanola is not high and so opted instead to wait.
|This is the actual colour of this photo.|
|The sun is trying to burn off the fog but so far not doing well.|
|Fog in the early morning.|
|A family of loons have been hanging out here all summer.|
We will be heading to Hamilton for a couple of appointments, leaving the farm on Oct 29. Appointments are on 30 and 31, with us leaving Hamilton the afternoon of 31 with the OnRoute in Tilbury being our destination for the night. We will then be close to the US/Canada border and will hopefully slip across without any issues.
|Sunrise on my morning walk not long ago.|
|Love the colours. Sunrise again.|
Today's pictures have been taken on my morning walks. I usually walk the same block, 4 miles/6.4 km , takes me a little over an hour. I only use my phone so the picture quality isn't great but it gives you an idea of what I see while I am out and about.
|An over night rain caused this water fall not far from the Igloo. It's been running now for a number of days.|
|This tree is on the way to Dad's house from the Igloo but via the farm road, not the main road.|
With the fall colours now on the sights are amazing and yet with the constant winds I'm surprised we still have any left at all.
|Heading out Lakeshore Road N.|

Thanks for stopping by, I promise to do a much better job of blogging when we leave our home base. Coffee time is 6:30 am at Dad's house, a walk after that usually gets me home about 8:15 - 8:30 am, then the usual chores at home and sometimes elsewhere as well and before I know it the clock is reading noon. Lunch is between 2-3 pm (as you know this is our main meal of the day), reading, working, and visiting fills the rest of the day light hours and I'm in bed reading by 9 pm. So as you can see the days seem to speed by before I get a chance to write anything. We don't do much exciting stuff here but it's home and we like it.
|Love the sunrise through the tree.|
|Love that fiery colour.|
Until next time... take care, be safe,

|Sunrise isn't far off.|
