Summer may be coming....

Our Location: 
Summer spot, near South Baymouth, Ontario

I've been writing this post over a number of days.

Old Man Winter just won't go home this year, he keeps making the rounds every few days and over staying his welcome for weeks at a time. However I do believe spring might be arriving by mid week and hopefully likes it here enough to unpack and stay a while. I guess time will tell. 

Looking out the door with snow pellets coming down. 

 Our dark brown mat is totally white with snow pellets.

The photos today are just random shots taken over the past number of days. Things are quiet here and we like it that way. I've talked with both of my older daughters over the past days, and I think I can safely say we will all be very happy to see this never ending winter and quarantine end. 

Over the course of about an hour, the snow melted but started falling again. 

Walking over the rock, the moss makes the rocks look squishy. 

The above two photos were taken from one of my brother's deer stands.

The above two photos were taken during a walk and yes those are snow flakes falling. This pathway is called the 5Th Line. No longer used for cars or trucks but popular with Quads, ATV's and walkers. 

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you and yours are all well and staying busy, warm and in touch with family.

Until next time....take care, be safe, stay healthy,

A few rainy days....

Our Location: 
Summer Spot, near South Baymouth, Ontario, Canada

Since we are having another rainy day I thought I’d just drop a few lines here to say we are all fine and doing well, hoping for warmer weather, and an end to the virus. However at this point we’ll settle for warmer weather. 
I think I may have posted this one before but I like it.

A number of rainy days here of late, which are good and bad at the same time. Good because it means the ground will be warming up, new life will spring forth and we will feel as if we have some kind of natural order to our lives again. Bad only because it means we are stuck inside in the cold and damp weather, which of course isn’t much fun. Oh well, we need the rain and soon we will be blessed with warm sunshine right?
The road to Dad's house. 
Soon we will put the umbrella up and start using our back yard eating area. 
Home sweet home. 
 We refer to this as the bowl. See how dry it is? 

Not so dry now after all the rain.
I told you it was a gravel pit, quarry. 
A few photos of the area around us, we walk these paths and plateaus, fields and roads often but always enjoy the views. Spring is coming but it’s very slow. We are hopeful it will arrive before summer.
The birch trees are starting to bud out now. 
I happened across this video, thought maybe some of you other Canuckies out there might enjoy it. Up here in Canada.
Thanks for stopping by, we hope you are all well, happy, healthy and safe.

Until next time… take care, be safe, stay healthy,
