…Becca Givens is still on pause and I hope all is well
….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.

After doing a bit of shopping the other day I decided to drive down into Col. Sam Smith Park and go for a short of a walk. On my way back to the car I passed the outdoor skating rink. Even though we’ve experienced some pretty mild temperatures the rink was still operational because of the pipes under the ice.
In Toronto if you want to skate in one of the city ice rinks you have to book a time so that the area doesn’t become overwhelmed with too many people. A booth is set up outside the old Power Plant where you can sign in. The building itself is closed now during COVID but is used as a community centre.

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 my walks I’m most happiest when I’m near water. Here are some of the lakes, creeks and ponds that I’ve passed in the last couple of weeks. Grenadier Pond, Lake Ontario, Twenty Mile Creek and Black Creek.
