Fall photos

 Our Location: Summer Spot, near South Baymouth, Ontario



Some fall photos taken today on my walk. (All photos taken with my phone)


This photo is taken on Lakeshore Road, the leaves are falling rapidly these days.





A small piece of maple forest on the farm shows off a carpet of fallen leaves.



Once this was a mighty birch tree that could not be circled by any less three or four people linking arms. Now sadly it is a very small piece of history on the farm. 

 

 

 My grandfather (on the right) and a neighbour standing in front of the birch tree many, many years ago.  When I refer to the 'farm' it is property that once belonged to my grandfather's father and this tree stood very close to the sight of one of the houses on the farm. It was sold (out of the family) but my father bought it back a number of years ago. Except for the first photo of Lakeshore Road ( the farm is on the left of Lakeshore Road), the remainder of the photos were all taken on the farm property.

 

 


The Sugar Shack where Rick and Dad make maple syrup every spring.






Thanks for stopping by, I hope all is well with you fine folks out there. 

 

Take care, be safe, stay healthy,

    1. Thanks Mary. Yes to the syrup, they share readily any time I ask for some, although I don't do any of the work to help make it.

    1. Thanks Vern. We love it for about two full seasons a year. All summer of course, but only about half of the spring and half of the fall seasons when the weather is nice. Since we are located on a rock in the middle Georgian Bay/Lake Huron cold and blustery comes on fast and stays long some times.
      We had a few days in which we discussed the idea of going south but alas we are here for the winter and have finally just moved into the little stone house.

    1. Thanks Lorne. The farm is indeed rich with memories but like all things continues to evolve until some parts are almost unrecognizable compared to my memories. It is still a wonderful place to be in the good weather though.

    1. Thanks Doug. We are well but a bit sad about not heading south this winter. Next winter I'm sure we will be just a blur as we leave the north and head for warmer dryer places to tuck in for the winter. Hope all is well with you and yours!!

  7. I like your Autumn photos of the forest and farmlands. I have only been to Manitoulin Island twice and neither time was long enough.
