Water, Water Everywhere – #68

thanks to Jez for hosting Water, Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2021/03/08/tradeston-footbridge-water-water-everywhere-68/

After our adventure to Tiffany Falls last week we were hoping to find another falls close by but for some reason our GPS kept taking us to someone’s private address. We knew we were close to the Ancaster Mill so we went there instead. It’s beautiful in the summer. Unfortunately or luckily (it’s pretty expensive) the restaurant is closed because of the pandemic but we were able to take in the falls that flows past the mill.

On our way home we decided to find one more waterfall. Kevin had forgotten that we had actually seen Albion Falls last October but he never got out of the car that day so this sighting was new for him. I must say that most falls take on a different appearance when the seasons change and I was pleased to see it again.

This is as close as one can get to the falls and there is no access to the base of the falls this time of year.

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Birds Beginning with the Letter E

….thanks to Lisa Coleman from Our Eyes Open for hosting the Bird Weekly Challenge https://oureyesopen.blog/2021/03/05/bird-weekly-photo-challenge-birds-beginning-with-the-letter-e/

Emus are flightless birds and second in size only to the ostrich. This large bird originates from Australia and forages on seeds and plants. My photos are from the High Park Zoo where two of these magnificent birds reside.

Water, Water Everywhere – Tiffany Falls

….thanks to Jez for hosting Water, Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2021/03/01/reflections-in-a-puddle-water-water-everywhere-67/

For this week’s #67 challenge I have photos of Tiffany Falls to share with you. Earlier this week my husband and I had quite the adventure getting to this beautiful waterfall in Ancaster, ON.

Ancaster is just south of Hamilton and Tiffany Falls is just one of over 100 waterfalls in the area. Two weeks ago this waterfall was completely frozen. You could actually walk behind the frozen wall of ice. Since then a lot of the snow has melted but in the wooded areas the snow melted and froze again so the trails were very icy. Before we started out my husband lent me his ice cleats but that meant he didn’t have anything on the bottom of his shoes.

There were parts of the path, especially when it went uphill that were so slippery I didn’t even trust the cleats. At one point a nice gentleman who also had cleats on his shoes helped me over a rise on the path. Unfortunately it was at this point that my husband stopped and didn’t try to get closer to the falls. Luckily he was able to see it from where he stopped and his camera allowed him to zoom in and get a closer look. I walked all the way to the lookout. In some of the photos you’ll notice that there is a family that went right to the base of the falls.

When we got home I immediately ordered a second pair of ice cleats.

Lost #6

….no masks this time but lots of mittens and gloves

It seems now that the snow has melted there are numerous lost mittens and gloves. The stuffed toy may not have been lost but it certainly was misplaced when it ended up on top of the lighthouse structure. Some kind people have taken the lost items and placed them on tree branches so that people might see them as they walk by and hopefully retrieve what belongs to them.

Thursday Trios – #10

it seems that somewhere down the road I numbered one of the posts incorrectly but it is now corrected

Looking for trios can be challenging but sometimes they are right under our noses. Case in point, the photo with the stringed instruments is in my living room and the yarn has been hidden away but it was in my house.

There are no rules as too when you post, how often, or what you post as long as there are three objects, people or animals. Join the fun and copy my link and paste it into your post.
