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.

Yesterday Kevin and I drove to Hamilton, ON, to hike around an area known for its waterfalls. Unfortunately it was very icy so the hiking part was cut short but not before we were able to see two of the area’s famous waterfalls. The first one is Webster’s Falls. It is probably the more spectacular of the two because it is bigger and more water falls over the edge of the cliffs. Tews Falls has less water but the view along the gorge is spectacular.
According to the City of Waterfalls site Webster’s Falls is a curtain waterfall with a 22 metre plunge and is found in the Spencer Gorge/Webster’s Falls Conservation Area in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. The water flows down Spencer Creek and the falls is the largest in the area.
Tews Falls is a 41 metre ribbon waterfall, and is the tallest waterfall found in Hamilton. Located at the Spencer Gorge / Webster’s Falls Conservation Area, its source is Logie’s Creek.

On Day 7 we need to find joy in the world and not look down or backwards. Children teach us to look up and out as they explore their world. Our granddaughter brings us UPmost joy. I know it should be utmost but due to the challenge I’m taking some literary license.
The first photo was taken by her father when they went on a hike through the woods. He swears she did not pose for this shot. This stance came out of the blue. The second photo was taken by me. She was looking up at me as I stood on the porch (six feet apart).

On our little get-a-way last week we stopped at Albion Falls in Hamilton. I love waterfalls and Hamilton has over 100 of them tucked behind the trails of the Niagara Escarpment that cuts through the city. Albion Falls is one of the more popular ones. It is almost as wide (18 metres) as it is tall (19 metres) and is visible from two viewing platforms, but there is currently no access to the bottom.

This week I’m a fan of my husband’s abstract paintings. Back in August he finally started painting again after a 45 year hiatus. He was primarily painting with acrylics but yesterday he started to experiment with watercolour. Here are his first attempts in this new medium.
This last photo is the first painting in a frame under glass. This one has already been slated as a gift to one of the nurses at MacMaster Hospital in Hamilton.
