It has been frigid, and I really haven’t had the urge to brave the cold to take some new photos. So instead of dwelling on the wintery situation, I’ve decided to remind you of summer.
A portion of almost every summer of life has been spent in the Parry Sound area/cottage country in Ontario. I have been lucky enough to have had a family cottage and relatives in the area. My summers, therefore, have always involved listening to loons, watching the sun set on the lake, being amazed at the ability of pine, cedar and spruce trees to grow on bare rock, fishing, roasting marshmallows at a camp fire, and most importantly catching frogs and the occasional snake.
Here are a few photos that bring me right back to my summers “up north” and make me feel warm on the inside while my outside shivers. BRRRRR!
Today’s post is a bit of a mish-mash of images. I had a look through some photos I took the day of the 2013 ice storm and found some that I liked but never shared, so I’ve included them today (the Foreboding Road and Kelso Conservation Area)! There’s also a shot of the Burlington beach following the snow storm we had on the weekend. The ice shelf doubled in size over night and if you live in Burlington it’s a sight to see! I’ve spoken to some people who have no idea that the ice shelf forms every winter (provided we have a few good storms with an east wind)! That’s all very cold and icy, but I also had some pink tulips and thought I’d include a hazy, soft photo of them as well; A little hint of spring because right about now I’m sure a lot of you are sick of snow and ice. Happy Friday, everyone! Stay warm!
