    Dunvegan

    by

    September 17, 2022. Photo from my bike ride through Dunvegan on a beautiful; Saturday afternoon. I also made it through Maxville and Moose Creek, but didn’t quite make it home – I had to walk the last 3 km because of flat tires. Still, a nice 73 km ride. https://flic.kr/p/2nNn2fW

    Sentier Iroquois

    by

    September 11, 2022. The is the river along the Sentier Iroquois near Duhamel, Quebec. It’s an area of rugged beauty. Andrea and I went for what turned out to be a strenuous 8 km hike up to the falls and back on a sweltering late summer day. A lot of…

    RedBlacks

    by

    September 10, 2022. We were at a rare Saturday afternoon RedBlacks game (I would really prefer more afternoon games). Yes it was another loss, but we came within about 5 yards of winning this one. The losses have been (mostly) close all season, as though we’re just a grasp away…

    St Lawrence River

    by

    September 3, 2022. Cycled this beautiful Saturday 112 km to the St. Lawrence River and back (note my 2022-365 pictures are all out of order because of my 3-week gap while in Anticosti, but I’m still taking them and uploading them). https://flic.kr/p/2nJYwqu

    View From the Front

    by

    August 3, 2022. View from the front. This is the sunset snapped with my phone camera through the small unglazed part of the front door window. A day much like yesterday’s, except I also went to the Independent in Embrun to get the last of the supplies I need for…

    View From The Back

    by

    August 2, 2022. This is just a quick photo taken of the back yard; I propped the camera on a shelf to keep it still and the content was what resulted. I was focused mostly on getting admin tasks done and playing the new No Man’s Sky expedition. https://flic.kr/p/2nCwENE

    Midsummer Harvest

    by

    August 1, 2022. This is a midsummer harvest (I assume of winter wheat, but I really don’t know). It was a holiday today and my legs were recovered enough to get out for a short bike ride. Not the holiday long weekend I planned, but the one I got. https://flic.kr/p/2nCz7W1

    Alfred Bog

    by

    July 31, 2022. This is Alfred Bog, 9,000 acres of sphagnum moss located about 40 kilometers from home. With my legs still not working very well we were limited to a short walk, so this boardwalk of less than a kilometer was perfect. Definitely a place to return to, a…

    Devastation

    by

    July 30, 2022. We came back from Mont Tremblant to find the Village had hired landscapers to cut down all the foliage on our property. It wasn’t surprising, given the notice they had sent, though we *did* cut the grass. But we did not cut down our goldenrods and milkweed…
