Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge – July 2, 2017

…..our own ‘Nessie’ the Lake Ontario monster?

Obviously it’s just part of a fallen tree but it reminded me of the Loch Ness Monster. Do you have any odd ball photos to share with Cee?

Don’t want to imagine what this is spewing into the lake

No idea what this is. A ride, an exercise device??????


Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Duck Duck Goose

….I may be a little late with Cee’s call for Duck Duck Goose but yesterday’s walk gave me ample material for this week’s challenge

Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful for an exceptionally beautiful week of warm and sunny weather; something that is very unusual for this time of year. I’m also grateful that I was able to get my snow tires on my car before the snow really begins to fall.

I’m looking forward to a three day camping trip with our grade five students. We’ll be travelling about 2 1/2 north of the city. Before you think I’m completely bonkers let me clarify that we aren’t sleeping in tents. We have cabins to sleep in.

I’m also looking forward to seeing my sister from Calgary on the weekend. She’s flying in with her husband to visit our Dad before this big move into the retirement home, spend some time with me, visit friends in Georgetown and visit her mother-in-law who lives in Ottawa. It will be a busy weekend for her.
