MLM and I had a day out today. We’ve been so busy with house, and work, and life, that we just haven’t had the time to spend a day together, just having fun.
We started with breakfast a diner in a nearby village. A one horse town where you park your tractor on the main street while you shop.
We headed onto Presqu’ile, one of Ontario’s many provincial parks. Here are some collages of pictures we took at the park.
First of all is the marsh boardwalk. That was very restful and soothing. I doubt it will be in a few weeks once the mosquitoes and blackfly are in full force. It’s still bein built, the Timmie’s can holds paint. That picture with the Timmie’s can seems very Canadian to me.
Next we went to the lighthouse. A small but important building on the edge of the peninsula. There have been a fair few shipwrecks of these shores. It was invigorating to sit by the lake and listen to the waves. BTW why are the great lakes called lakes and not seas?? It can’t be because they are freshwater as there are other freshwater seas, the Caspian for instance. Does anyone know?
Our last stop was at one of the beaches. There was a cold wind from the lake but still lovely and warm. The mist effect you can see is the icy cold water evaporating as mist in the warm sun.
Three styles of collage there. Any preference?
