An Evening Walk by the Lake – Day 8

thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/08/walking-squares-8/

Now that the time change occurred it’s getting darker sooner in the evenings. I headed out towards the lake which is only 100 m from my house and quickly took some shots of the city skyline of Toronto and then turned around and I got shots of the sunset. Some of you may remember that less than a week ago you couldn’t see the city because of the fog.

It wasn’t even 5:30 when I started back home and it was already dark.

The Last Night of Lawn Bowling

….what a great season

This was the first year, since 2020 where we were able to play a full season and with fewer restrictions. Many of us, including myself, had the experience of playing in tournaments with other clubs and with the addition of 30 new members in our club alone we made a lot of new friends.

Thursday evening was our last opportunity to play. It was cold and windy but enough members came out to play on three rinks. Today the city came by and laid a layer of sand to the pitch which prevents us from playing into next week. In a couple of weeks we will have one more opportunity to get together and share a meal at a local restaurant.

Water, Water Everywhere – Georgian Bay

….thanks to Jez for hosting Water, Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2022/08/22/river-clyde-water-water-everywhere-140/

I’ve just returned from a five day stay at the cottage on Georgian Bay. As some of you may know my cottage is on an island and to get there you have to take a ferry. So I am literally surrounded by water when we go there. The cottage is on the north shore so it looks like we’re on the sea. This past week the lake was calm and great for swimming and paddle boarding.

Going to the Cottage for a Few Days

will be off grid and unable to post

I’m finally getting back up to the cottage. With no electricity or internet I won’t be posting any photos or stories for awhile. Hopefully when I return I’ll have lots of new photo and some adventures to share with you. Here’s just a taste of what I’ll be experiencing.

Pink Clouds Before the Storm

….we’ve been waiting all day for the snow to start

A major snowstorm is heading our way. In fact it started about three hours ago and is suppose to continue all night and well into the morning. When I went out this evening for a walk I was beginning to wonder if the snow was actually coming because there were very few clouds in the sky. On my way back home, however, I noticed these amazing pink clouds in the western sky as the sun was setting.
